Chiropractic Care for Headache and Neck Pain

Chronic headaches are one of the most common conditions seen in chiropractic offices. In the last decade, modern research has shown headaches represented at least 20% of patient-doctor visits. Patients of all ages with headaches not only experience moderate to severe pain, but are also impaired in their daily activities. Severe headaches can make even the easiest tasks seem difficult. A multitude of resources show that many types of headaches can be treated with proper chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatment can help resolve, and possibly eliminate, many debilitating or chronic headaches.

Dr. Brent Heater has years of hands-on experience treating patients experiencing chronic or severe headaches. The cause of the majority of headaches lies in nerve interference or pressure on cranial and spinal nerve roots. Migraine headaches originate from a chemical reaction that happens in the body. This chemical reaction is mainly the result of nerve blockage as well as interference along the spine. This interference can cause other symptoms such as chronic neck pain, head and face pain, numbness and tingling, vision issues, and nausea.

Chronic neck and arm pain conditions are also common and can be effectively treated with chiropractic medicine. Neck or cervical spine symptoms arise from bio-mechanical pressure or irritation of a spinal nerve’s roots. These cervical spine issues might be intermittent or they may be progressive. Either way, they are something that should not be ignored. The longer you allow these problems to persist, the longer it will take the body to heal and stabilize.

Nerve pressure or pinched nerves in the neck can be overwhelmingly painful and can be pair with other symptoms like localized stiffness, continual discomfort of the shoulders, scapula, and elbows. Numbness and weakness are also side effects of a pinched and compressed nerves. Thus may prevent you from working to your fullest ability. 

Dr. Heater is a nationally acclaimed chiropractor who will locate and treat the source of spinal nerve interference. Using advanced chiropractic treatment, pressure is removed from the nerves that are causing the pain. You will experience immediate relief from pain and Dr. Heater will continue treatment till that pain is ultimately gone.
