Headaches

Millions of men and women feel the impact of headache pain. In our country, headaches are a chronic problem for which solutions are sought every year. Results of research point to the severity of this health problem, revealing that many people report headache pain approximately 180 days a year. Whether it is a mild aggravation or an intense migraine, no one wants to have a headache half of every year.

Headaches West Linn - Image Several different types of headaches have been identified, with numerous potential triggers for each type. Some of the most commonly diagnosed headaches are:

  • Tension headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Migraines
  • Cervicogenic headaches, which stem from the neck
  • Medicine-induced headaches
  • Headaches from whiplash or another type of neck or head injury

In addition to showing us the prevalence of headache pain, research also tells us that 25 percent of chiropractic patients initially seek care for this very problem. A doctor of chiropractic medicine has completed very specific training through which he or she can identify and plan suitable treatment for the musculoskeletal issues that cause headaches. Dr. Emmert has helped several of his patients regain the comfort they need to engage in life fully.

Chiropractic care can be extremely effective at solving chronic headache pain because most headaches, migraines included, stem from a neurological or soft tissue problem. The scope of chiropractic care revolves around joint mobility in the spine, neck, and back. Addressing limitations in mobility, chiropractic adjustments relieve tension that builds up around the muscles and ligaments of the back and neck. Relaxation of these soft tissues leads to a decrease in the intensity and frequency of headaches. Nothing makes us happier than seeing a patient regain the quality of life he or she deserves through gentle therapies.
