A condition that affects nearly nine out of every 10 Americans, and disrupts one’s ability to perform daily tasks is headaches. These headaches can be extremely problematic and are occurring too often in our society.
When that headache strikes, what is your first thought? Medication? Shutting down for the day? Try to ignore it? The good news is, there is a better way! Our chiropractors have a treatment option for even those toughest headaches.
What Causes A Headache?
Our Jonesboro chiropractors can provide treatment for a variety of conditions but take a special interest in treating primary headaches which can be caused by poor posture or trauma. When poor posture or trauma affects the body, the tendons and muscles in the neck can become aggravated, therefore causing your headaches.
The most common primary headaches are:
- Cluster headache
- Tension headache
Although trauma and poor posture are leading causes of primary headaches, other factors can also be to blame for the onset of your headache:
- Food allergies
- Environmental stimuli
- Excessive exercise
- Blood sugar changes
At our chiropractic clinic, we focus on the patient as a whole and take a full picture of who they are to ensure that they are getting the proper diagnosis as well as the most effective treatment plan. With this approach, our chiropractors are ensuring that we have created a plan to not only minimize your symptoms but eradicate the problem to the best of our ability.
AICA Jonesboro’s Approach To Treatment
If there is tension located in the spine, more often than not, this will be the cause of your headaches. Our approach is to isolate the problem and attack it head on to minimize the chance of recurrence.
To gain a full understanding of your symptoms, our chiropractors will provide you with a full examination, and in some cases, order x-rays of the neck to check for abnormalities in your posture. With headaches, the pain can occur in a variety of locations ranging in intensity. Our team of chiropractors will help to pinpoint the location of your pain and provide an effective plan to address the pain.
