Chronic neck pain and frequent headaches are very common in our society. Sitting at a computer or constantly looking down at your phone/tablet are prime culprits. Most people who suffer from regular headaches experience 2-5 headaches per week. Unfortunately, this is extremely abnormal.
Headaches can stem from a variety of things, but for this blog post we are going to focus on the cervicogenic headache. Pain from a cervicogenic headache stems from restricted joints in the neck and associated hypertonic muscles.
Advil, Tylenol and Aleve may help with the pain at the time, however those types of medications are not actually treating the root cause. With that being said, consider seeing an evidence based chiropractor. A thorough chiropractic and neurological examination, in addition to a review of medical history, will be necessary to determine the cause of your symptoms. This will also help the provider put together the most appropriate and specific treatment plan for you.
I, personally, have a history of chronic neck pain and headaches. I have been getting headaches since I was young and numerous concussions later, the headaches and neck pain just continued to get worse. By the time I was in chiropractic college, I was waking up with a headache and/or neck pain daily. Once again, this is not normal. There is no such thing as a “normal” or “daily” headache.
Manual cervical manipulation, manual and instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation and acupuncture were in my treatment plan for many weeks, but ultimately this is what got me back to my normal!
If you, or a loved one, have been experiencing chronic headaches or neck pain, please give Pinnacle Hill Chiropractic a call!
