Considering A Denver Chiropractor For Headache Or Neck Pain Relief?
Research shows that chiropractic care in Denver is helpful for neck pain and headaches, not only in adults, but also children.
- About 90% of Americans experience headaches and 15% experience migraines.
- About 80% will experience spine related pain during their life.
- Over $17 billion dollars is spent every year on headache and migraine treatment and countless hours are lost in productivity.
These conditions can be very frustrating at the least and can be progressive and get worse over time. Sometimes when the condition has deteriorated, it may lead to numbness or tingling in the arms or hands which can lead to spinal fusion surgery.
Causes of Neck Pain and Headaches Explained by Denver Chiropractor
There are many causes of neck pain and headaches: a whiplash accident, doing chores, looking down a lot, caring for children, using the computer and using technology and looking down a lot a phone or tablet. Often times test like x-rays or MRI’s come back “negative” for gross pathology but yet there is still a problem. Headaches and neck pain are not normal and one can get relief and resolution from non-drug or non-surgical methods, such as chiropractic care.
With our chiropractic evaluation and treatment at Lifetime Wellness & Chiropractic, we have been able to help where others have not. We look for the cause of the problem and don’t just look at the symptom. We have helped many people who have been in this position. With our 5 part evaluation process we are able to help identify the problems that may have been missed in the past and determine the best course of care to remove the pressure from your nervous system.
It is very common for people to reach for an over the counter medication such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol or NSAID, to help either their headache or neck pain. However, research has shown that the chiropractic adjustment also known as a “spinal manipulation was significantly better than nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac and clinically superior to placebo.” There are also side effects to taking these medications such as kidney or liver damage/failure, digestive tract bleeding and in some cases of overdose leading to death. These medications tend to address the symptom but not the cause of the symptom, the problem often times comes back.
Neck pain has also been shown to respond well to chiropractic care, “individuals who received thoracic thrust manipulation experienced significantly great reductions in neck pain.” Research has also shown how children can benefit also from chiropractic adjustments. “This case report provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic care in children suffering from neck pain and cervicogenic headaches.”(#4) If these symptoms describe you or someone you know we believe the following will be helpful.
Here is a story of one of our patients Kristin who had neck pain, headaches and migraines multiple times per week:
I have been receiving care from Dr. Mooberry since February 2017 and the results I have gotten have been phenomenal! I began having serious daily migraine headaches in 2002 and it got to the point that I had a headache every day, all day long. I had accepted that there was no relief for it. Gradually I began having chronic muscle pain throughout my body with numbness and tingling in my arms and legs. Then in 2008 I began having seizures! I was constantly in and out of my doctors and a neurologists offices trying to figure out what was going on with my body and why all this was happening to me. I went through loads of testing and more medications than I can count and nothing was helping. After everything I had tried with no good results I agreed with my daughter to go to Dr. Mooberry.
Dr. Mooberry was genuinely concerned for me and was very upfront with me telling me that he felt that I had major problems. The most astounding thing was that he made me a promise; he promised me that if he could not help me that he would tell me right up front and help me look for alternatives to get me some relief. After the exam he determined there were multiple areas that were misaligned cutting of the proper nerve signals to the rest of my body. I have been following his recommendations ever since. As of today I no longer have a headache every day and haven't had a seizure since beginning care! I am no longer on any medications and feel better than I have in the previous 15 years. I have more energy, sleep better, and am able to do so much more without pain or fear of having a seizure. I am truly thankful for the care I receive at Lifetime Wellness & Chiropractic and the compassion and concern that is shown to me.
