Chiropractic Care for Headaches
An estimated 35 million Americans have experienced the debilitating pain of a migraine. As the most severe type of headache, migraines can cause vomiting, sensitivity to light (photophobia), vision problems and excruciating pain. As well, an estimated 90 percent of adult Americans experience the regular onset of headaches, many of whom resort to potentially dangerous over-the-counter medications like NSAIDs to combat the pain
Chiropractic care is a natural headache treatment that can provide near-immediate, lasting relief for this type of condition. At Quality Life Chiropractic in Rochester, we believe all patients deserve just that: a strong quality of life free from crippling migraines and bothersome headaches.
A Natural Remedy for a Common Problem
In 2011, the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine published a study in which a patient with monthly severe migraines submitted to chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment. Her headache episodes lasted nearly ten hours with a reported pain level of eight out of a possible 10. In sum, this patient was suffering a great deal but did not wish to turn to pain medication as a solution. After submitting to chiropractic treatment, the patient reported not one single migraine incident in the following months.
It is certainly not an isolated result, evidenced by our own successful results in patients who visit us regularly. In our Rochester office, we treat patients who not only experience excruciating migraines but more commonplace dull headaches, upper neck pain, and various other conditions. We also work with patients to recommend exercises to try at home, as well as integrate massage therapy as part of treatment.
