Headache Facts You Need to Know

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 1:

Med­ical knowl­edge about the cause of your headache is very, very lim­it­ed.  The main tool a med­ical doc­tor uses to “diag­nose” your headache is noth­ing more than your descrip­tion of it.

Don’t take my word for it – check out “The inter­na­tion­al clas­si­fi­ca­tion of headache dis­or­ders, 2nd Edi­tion”.

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 2:

If you’re like many headache suf­fer­ers, your headache pat­terns com­bine fea­tures of more than one type, or shift over time from one type to anoth­er.  In oth­er words, you may expe­ri­ence mus­cle ten­sion headaches that change to migraines or dai­ly chron­ic headache.

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 3:

Headache drugs often back­fire, caus­ing you even worse “rebound” pain.

Fortunately, There’s Good News

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 4:

There’s a com­mon link shared by most peo­ple with headaches.

Researchers have shown that many peo­ple with headaches have prob­lems with:

  • Stiff joints in the neck and upper back
  • Mus­cle knots in the neck mus­cles
  • Poor pos­ture and con­trol over move­ment

These are issues that chi­ro­prac­tors have devel­oped a sophis­ti­cat­ed abil­i­ty to eval­u­ate and treat.

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 5:

Chi­ro­prac­tic man­u­al ther­a­py, using a com­bi­na­tion of meth­ods, is one of the best researched, most effec­tive ways to help your headache pain.
