Frequent Headaches?

Headaches are so common that people sometimes think that its just a normal part of life!  No way! Pain is not normal, it is a signal from your body that something needs attention.  Stress, toxic fumes, food allergies, preservatives, and dehydration are common culprits of frequent headaches.

Some would estimate that 25% of the population has a headache RIGHT NOW!?!  It has been reported that 10 million Americans suffer from moderate to severe headaches regularly. That is a lot of pain!  We weren’t born with headaches, and we can live without them.  Loss of normal spine curve is a common cause of many types of headaches.

When the spinal bones in the neck and upper back lose their normal position and motion, sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected.  With spinal nerves and tissue stretched and irritated, they can produce throbbing headaches.  Medication will only cover the warning signs, and will never correct the underlying cause. Frequently, people experience correction and relief through chiropractic care.
Spinal joint dysfunction can be created by the myriad of chemical, emotional and physical stresses in our lives. Chiropractic care can help align all of these systems. One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic care is the opportunity to create well being and be drug free! We want to help you TODAY!

Overwhelm and Stress

How is Stress affecting you?

Emotional stress, physical stress, and spiritual stress can all contribute to leaving you feeling overwhelmed, and spent. Stress is an ever evolving system response to the changing stimulus of our environment.  We can feel stressed by our jobs, personal conflicts, project deadlines, demands of time or money. It may surprise you that the feelings of stress may have nothing to do with the stress in your life.  Poor posture, prolonged sitting, and accident, or an old injury can all lead to spinal stress. Chronic pain and muscle tension can cause you to experience nervousness and irritability,or nervousness and irritability can cause chronic pain and muscle tension.  We can help you unravel this catch 22.

Chiropractic care can help give your nervous system a greater capacity to adapt to stress. Like a vacation, in just a 15 minute appointment.  Chiropractic can be similar to exercise by reducing tension in the nervous system, improving your ability to tolerate and adapt to the stresses of modern life. We seem to exhibit stress and strain in the weakest area of our bodies. That area will be the first to go, like the weakest link in a chain. Finding the weak links in your spine and helping restore better function, can make a profound difference in your response to stress. Stress can show up as an upset stomach, recurring headaches, back pain, or muscle stiffness. Others may have nervous twitches, allergic reactions, or chemical sensitivities. Regardless of how your body responds to stress, your nervous system is involved, which is why chiropractic is such an important adjunct to your busy life.

The chiropractic approach to stress is to help normalize the function of your nervous system by removing interferences caused by spinal joint dysfunction.
