If you’re an individual who frequently suffers from very uncomfortable headaches, you’re not alone, because at any given time, there are thousands of your neighbors who are also suffering from the effects of headaches regularly. Statistics released by the World Health Organization show that 50% of all individuals will experience some degree of headaches during a given year, and when that period is extended out to a lifetime, more than 90% of all people will have these headaches.
In many cases, people affected by headaches will take pain medications, but if these are ingested on a regular basis, they can actually lead to other health issues. There is a better way to approach pain relief from persistent headaches, and that’s through regular chiropractic care. When you seek out chiropractic care, the first step that will be taken is to determine exactly what type of headaches you may be suffering from. This is what we will do at Wolke Chiropractic in North Haledon, New Jersey, because our approach is to treat the underlying cause of your headaches, rather than the symptoms manifested by those headaches.
Common causes of headaches
Recognizing what causes headaches and how lifestyle changes can make a difference
One of the most common types of headaches are those which are referred to as tension headaches, and these can affect as much is 78% of the general population. Surprisingly, tension headaches cause more loss of time at work and more disability of individuals than migraine headaches do. They are often experienced as a pressing or a sensation of tightness around the head. Studies which have been conducted show that one of the most frequent causes of tension headaches is forward head posture.
When you have abnormally forward head posture, it can cause a shortening of the posterior cervical muscles of the neck, as well as an increased level of muscle contraction. You might also experience a hyperextension of the vertebrae of the cervical spine, decreased range of motion, joint dysfunction of the temporomandibular area, and a greater incidence of cervicogenic headaches. Research has demonstrated conclusively that as the level of forward head posture grows, so does the severity of any headaches experienced by an individual.
How we treat headaches at Wolke Chiropractic
Treating headaches with non-invasive techniques.
The kind of treatment which has the most long-lasting effect in terms of treating headaches, has been found to be chiropractic biophysics, and this is the approach we take at our chiropractic care facility. This involves treatments and therapies which are all aimed at improving head and neck posture, because this is truly the underlying cause of your headaches in the first place.
Obviously this is not an overnight form of treatment, since the abnormal positioning of your head and neck has probably been in effect for years. However, with the combination of gentle manipulation from our chiropractic experts, and the home therapies and exercises we recommend for you, it will be possible to achieve better neck and head posture over the long haul. This in turn, will lead to less frequent headaches and less severe headaches, and that will become the most long-lasting solution to your wellness issues.
At Wolke Chiropractic & Rehabilitation we have chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, physical therapy, and acupuncture for pain relief, spine correction and structural restoration. Additionally, we offer wellness plans for those looking to continue to remain healthy once their problem is corrected. Book an appointment with us today!
