How many times have you heard the following: Headaches are a normal part of life. Everyone gets headaches! Take an aspirin, it will go away! We have all heard this from family, friends and even physicians.
As a Chiropractor, I know that this is not true. Headaches are a sign that something’s wrong.
Stress, toxic fumes, certain foods, preservatives and alcohol are common triggers of headaches.
A frequently overlooked cause of headaches is the malfunction of vertebral bones in the upper back and neck.
As bones of the spine lose position or motion, blood vessels and nerves to the head can be affected. Stretching and irritation of the related tissues can produce throbbing headaches. Medications may cover up these symptoms, but do not correct the underlying structural problems.
Chiropractic adjustments help correct the joint dysfunction created by the various physical, emotional and chemical stresses in our lives.
Every patient responds differently from spinal adjustments. Consult with Dr. Dorais to benefit from the drug free results.
