Headaches and Migraines
What Puts the "Ache" in Headache?
Surprisingly, a headache is not a "brain ache." The brain, most of its membranes and the skull feel no pain at all. The "pain-sensitive parts", the arteries of the brain and skull, the dura mater that covers the brain and the cranial nerves are infected, pulled, inflamed, stretched, compressed or irritated, headaches will usually result.
Sooner or later nearly everyone gets a headache, but for about 20% of us, they are chronic or recurrent.
Americans spend $2.5 billion on aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen (Tylenol") a year. These drugs, apart from their many side effects, treat the symptoms while ignoring the cause of the headache. What is our chiropractic approach?
Chiropractic and Headaches
Dr. Cohen has studied migraines for years and has developed a technique that has successfully relieved MIGRAINES and HEADACHES in the majority of the patients that suffered with these symptoms. Although chiropractic is not a headache therapy, for many years headache sufferers have benefitted from the drug-free, natural methods used in our wellness center. By eliminating craniel and spinal fixations, chiropractic permits the entire body to restore itself to a greater level of health and wholeness to heal itself. Chiropractic care at our office is essential for anyone who suffers from headaches.
