What’s giving you a headache?
Headaches are a very common problem these days; 57% of men and 76% of women experience at least one significant headache per month. Our non-stop, over-stressed, on-the-go lifestyles are contributing to this growing problem in our society. We want relief and we want it now. Let’s find out what’s causing the headaches, and how to treat them safely, effectively, and naturally.
Headaches are generally classified as migraine, cluster, tension, metabolic, or miscellaneous. The most common headaches are tension and migraine. Tension headaches are just what they sound like, they are caused by tension or stress. These can feel like your head is in a vice, or you have a band of pain around your head, at the base of your skull, or near your temples or forehead. Migraines are also frequently a major cause of head pain. Migraines are classified as either classic or common. Classic migraines are generally associated with an aura, or some cue that it’s coming so you better hide in a dark closet, while common migraines don’t have the warning signs. Migraines usually feel like a throbbing, pounding, intense headache. Most often they are just on one side and can be associated with nausea, vomiting, and worsen with bright lights or loud noises.
So you want a safe, effective, and all natural treatment for your headaches? Discover chiropractic care! Chiropractic adjustments have been shown not only to help with tension type headaches, but also with migraines, the two most common types of headaches. By adjusting the joints of the neck, and balancing the muscles and nerves that go to the head, many times chiropractic care can reduce or even eliminate headaches. But that’s not all. There are many natural nutritional supplements and dietary changes that can be made to help keep the headaches from coming back. Did you know that fish oil supplements, and 5-HTP supplements have both shown in clinical trials to be effective in headache relief. However, it is important to remember that not all supplements are the same, so get the best quality here at our store.
