Headache Relief & Edmond Chiropractors
The American Chiropractic Association has provided data revealing that nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Our Edmond chiropractors have seen multiple patients that have suffered from chronic headaches or even just headaches that occur on a seldom basis. Headaches just feel like such a pain. More specifically, they can be in any region of the head and sometimes on only one side of the head.
A headache may be a sharp pain, a throbbing sensation or a dull ache. Sometimes patients tell our Edmond chiropractors that their headaches can seem to come on slowly and other times they are suddenly there. Here’s the interesting part: Although it may feel like it, a headache is not actually a pain in your brain. It’s actually the brain’s way to tell you when other parts of your body hurt, but it can’t feel pain by itself.
The truth is that most headaches happen in the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles that cover a person’s head and neck. Our Edmond chiropractors have seen patients who have headaches that may last less than an hour or some that have lasted for several days. Just like with any pain, the common “quick fix” for most Americans is to grab the bottle of Aspirin or other pain relief medication.
The problem with taking medication like that to cover up your problem is that the headaches will just come back and eventually one or two pills doesn’t do the trick anymore. Before you know it, you may be seeing yourself take an increased dosage of pain medication. Want to know a better way? Often times, patients feel instant relief just from getting a spinal adjustment from one of our Edmond chiropractors.
Our Edmond chiropractors love to see people walk away with a feeling of improved well-being. If you could stop having ongoing headaches, would you do it? If you would like to know more or want to schedule your appointment please give us a call @ 405-285-7325.
