Chiropractic - A Natural Headache Treatment Worth Trying
Headaches are a global problem. You aren't alone.
Despite their prevalence, headache treatment options are fairly limited.
If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, it might be time to identify what's causing them and take advantage of natural headache treatment options to end your pain for good.
What Cause s Headaches and Migraines?
According to the World Health Organization, nearly half of the world's population experiences a headache at least once a year.
Between 1.7% and 4% report suffering chronic headaches or migraines at least 15 days each month. This drastically reduces a person's productivity and overall quality of life.
Many factors can trigger a headache, which is characterized as a nervous system disorder. Common causes that affect the central nervous system may include:
- Herniated, bulging, and degenerative discs in the neck and spinal cord
- Subluxations: Vertebrae shift out of place and lock into a misaligned position over a long period of time
- Pinched nerves: Usually cause cervicogenic headaches along with shoulder and arm pain or numbness
Your Options for Natural Headache Treatment
Since most headaches are the result of spinal or muscular impairment, chiropractic care can be extremely beneficial for not just treating but eliminating the pain for good.
Years of poor posture and environmental trauma can cause your spine, muscles, and joints to slowly slip out of place. If your spine isn't properly aligned, your nervous system cannot function properly, and you could experience chronic headaches.
Cox distraction is a specialized chiropractic technique. This method is a gentle, drug-free, and nonsurgical procedure for aligning the spine and treating headaches.
Through rotations and gradual push-and-pull motions, cox distraction can alleviate pressure on the spine and neck. This ultimately reduces physical pain and symptoms such as headaches, migraines, and numbness.
