How the Chiropractors @ Peterborough Chiropractic Help People Who Suffer From Headaches

If you are among the 45 million Americans who suffer headaches regularly, you are undoubtedly familiar with the traditional methods that people use to treat them, including taking some type of over the counter medication that is supposed to eliminate the pain and reduce any associated swelling. There are many other types of treatment that you may have attempted as well, including taking pharmaceutical concoctions designed to treat pain. However, none of these solutions provide permanent relief that addresses the problem at the core.

In the past few decades, there have been an increasing number of patients throughout the country that have begun to seek alternative forms of therapy for all types of conditions, including headaches. One form of treatment that is very promising for physical as well as other types of pain is manual therapy such as chiropractic.

These forms of alternative care has been used successfully for over a hundred years and has become a regular part of the American healthcare delivery system. In fact, there are an increasing number of insurance providers that are willing to pay for chiropractic because of their effectiveness.

When a person goes to school to learn about chiropractic, they begin by studying the human anatomy in great detail, just like other medical professionals. However, in addition to looking at how all of the parts work together physically, their training primarily revolves around the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the spine.

On the first visit @ Peterborough Chiropractic, a review of previous health issues will be completed to determine what types of problem may be occurring. They will listen to the patient attentively and make an assessment, including determining what types of treatment will best suit the patient.

In the case of headaches, the patient usually has misalignment in the cervical spine (Neck). This may be accompanied by muscles that are unduly tight in the neck, shoulders and nearby areas. Pressure on the nerves may cause sharp stabbing pains or there may be a continual dull throb in the region. Severe pain which also radiates down your arm can be coming from a herniated disc pressing on a nerve, but do not worry, Peterborough Chiropractic is Peterborough’s premier clinic specialising in herniated disc conditions.

The chiropractor will assess the area and then move forward with treatment in order to relieve the pressure and pain. The relief usually occurs within a few sessions, with progress the more you continue with your recommended care programme.

However, we don’t just focus on relieving symptoms but rather correcting the problem; therefore, additional treatments will follow to help correct the cause. In addition, the practitioner will take the time to educate you on the importance of looking after your body.

If you need further help with your headaches or are ready to see how beneficial treatment @ Peterborough Chiropractic can be to your overall health, please give us a call so that you can schedule an appointment with one of our team.
