How Can Chiropractic Help My Headaches and Affect the Quality of My Life.
Are you a headache sufferer? Do you experience headaches, and just accept them as part of “normal” living? What are headaches? There are many causes, which lead to the obvious; there must be many solutions. The key is to understand which one you have, to be efficient with your approach of management
Instead of naming the types of headaches, lets look at the various contributors to this affliction. As with all health issues, headaches arise from one of the three stresses, being physical, chemical and emotional. The physical causes could be from pressure on your brain or nerves, coming from something in your head, like a growth, as well as tension or stress in your nerve system, from spinal cord tension or vertebral misalignment. If the source is inside your head, a neurologist will be best suited to diagnose and treat you. More often than a growth in your head, the physical cause does arise from tension or pressure in your nerve system. This is best understood and dealt with by Chiropractors, since their focus is primarily spine and nerve focused. Chiropractors use a wide spectrum of natural approaches to minimize the interference to the nerve system that can cause headaches.
The Chemical cause of headaches can occur with an imbalance of body chemistry. What can upset the balance is too much or too little of what your body needs. Too much caffeine or sugar may cause your headaches. Too little oxygen may have than effect too. Remedying these chemical causes is logical and practical, once you have determined what the culprits are.
The emotional causes of headaches are obvious to anyone who has been upset or stressed, and then felt the onset of a headache. Your nerve system may respond to these episodes by giving you a headache. This is a cal for action. Change your circumstances, or better change your response t your circumstances. We use a system that not only reduces the nerve system tension, it also helps your to reprogram your response to stress. This means, even in the same environment that usually causes headaches, you may develop new more healthy responses, eliminating or at least minimizing the “need” for the onset of headaches.
Regardless of the cause of your headaches, a fundamental is to be certain you have a baseline of a fully functional and adaptable nerve system. Whether you have a chemical, emotional or structurally caused headache, ensuring a healthy nerve supply will benefit you in the short and long term.
