Is That Advil Really Helping You?
While there are many different causes of headaches…there has never been a documented case where the underlying cause was Advil deficiency!?! Advil, Aspirin, Tylenol is only masking your symptoms while the underlying cause continues to worsen.
While we have seen amazing results in our own patients with headaches, there is also a growing body of other research that shows that upper cervical specific chiropractic is very effective for headaches.
Reports documenting successful treatment of patients with headaches using upper cervical chiropractic care are many, including seeing positive results (symptoms were dramatically improved and/or eliminated) achieved in approximately 1000 headache cases (from The Palmer Research Clinic) whose upper cervical subluxations were corrected.
“Based on literature review of several headache treatment options, a panel of 19 multidisciplinary experts concluded that spinal adjustments resulted in almost immediate improvement for cervicogenic headaches and had significantly fewer side effects and longer lasting relief of tension type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.” [McCrory DC, et al. “Evidence Report: Behavioral and Physical Treatments for Tension type and Cervicogenic Headache.” Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center, Durham, North Carolina, January 2001.]
1296 Less Headaches!!
In another study by Dr. Erin Elster, 101 chronic headache cases were examined. The 30 days prior to starting care in Dr. Elster’s office, the 101 patients had a total of 1407 headaches! Or, approximately 14 headaches per month per person. All 101 patients began upper cervical chiropractic care. The 30 days following the conclusion of their upper cervical chiropractic care program, the 101 patients had a total of 111 headaches (or approximately one headache per patient per month on average).
That is a 92% reduction in headache frequency!
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is extremely effective in correcting the underlying cause of a variety of different headaches.
