Headaches

The reason chiropractic is so effective with headaches is because chiropractors correct the cause of your headaches.

Did you ever see a person suffering from an attack of a headache? The pain usually settles in the back of the neck, the forehead or behind the eyes. The pain is made worse by light noise or movement. The pain, at times, can become almost unbearable with nausea and vomiting. Regardless of the intensity of the headache pain, you want it to end. Fast!

This has made an enormous marketplace that cover up the symptoms of headaches. It is estimated that U.S. industry has lost $50 billion per year due to absenteeism and medical expenses caused by headaches. Most suffers experience between one to four attacks per month and last from a few hours to a number of days. Four billion dollars are spent annually on over-the-counter pain relievers for headaches. These powerful drugs can numb your nervous system so the pain doesn’t register.

While these approaches could also be convenient, they’ll cause adverse effects for your kidney and liver. Worse, they don’t correct the underlying cause of the headaches. Your headaches may be common, but they’re not normal. A study of 6,000 people, who suffered from recurring headaches for 2 to 25 years, showed that spinal injury was the most important factor in the cause of headaches.

1The primary reason chiropractic care is so effective with headaches is because it works with the body’s own innate healing ability. This innate intelligence is transmitted from our brain to the spinal cord, through nerves that extend to every organ, tissue and gland in our body. Nerve interference (or subluxation), however, causes the body to develop symptoms to warn us of a communication blockage in our nervous system. Such interference must be removed so that optimum health can be restored.

So, if you are among the more than 15 million Americans who suffer from recurrent headaches, call Dr. Miller at 248 674-7300. Chiropractic has been helping relieve headaches since 1895.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Is the spine the source of all headaches?
    Not necessarily. The three most common causes are physical trauma, emotional stress or chemical toxins. Sometimes there may be a combination of factors. Our examination process helps identify the most likely cause(s).
  • What causes subluxations?
    There are three basic causes of subluxations. Physical causes could include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions, and improper lifting. Emotions, such as stress, anger and fear can be the cause of subluxations. Chemical causes could include alcohol, drugs, preservatives, pollution and poor diet.
  • Show More
    The pain you feel is real. And psychological sources of pain are common. However, this “diagnosis” is often the last resort of health practitioners who have exhausted their possible explanations of the cause of your problem. In these cases, we’ve often found that undetected subluxations are likely culprits.
  • How many visits will it take?
    Some patients enjoy results quickly. Others notice a slow decline in their symptoms after several weeks or longer of chiropractic care. It’s impossible to predict. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time. We monitor your progress and modify our recommendations as needed.
  • What if chiropractic care doesn’t help?
    If we’re unable to find and correct the cause of your particular health problem, we will refer to other experts who may be able to help. Your health and your satisfaction are our only goal.
  • How come my medical doctor didn’t suggest chiropractic?
    That’s changing. Years of prejudice and bias are giving way to research showing the benefits of chiropractic care. Attitudes are slow to change. However, as the public demands alternatives to drugs and surgery, more and more medical practitioners are referring to chiropractors.
