Headaches are a very frequent pain condition that we see daily in our clinic in Parma, OH. Experts estimate that more than 70% of people suffer from frequent headache pain, so if you suffer too, you're not alone.
Head pain can have a wide variety of different causes. They can originate from stress, traumas, poor posture, or just everyday activities. Dr. Baker has helped a lot of patients in Parma, OH recover from persistent headaches, and we can probably help you, too.
First, we'll do a thorough examination to understand the underlying cause of your headache pain. Next, using a variety of natural strategies like chiropractic adjustments and exercise to reestablish your spine's natural functioning to alleviate strain on your body and nervous system. The majority of our patients see a rapid improvement in their signs or symptoms.
So how can chiropractic resolve headache? Many people suffer from what's known as cervicogenic headache. This results when a neck injury (perhaps sustained during an auto accident or simply from hunching over a computer too long) impinges the trigeminal nerve, which runs from the base of your neck to your face and above the eyes.
While pain at the base of the skull coupled with facial pain is a tell-tale sign of this headache type, unfortunately cervicogenic headaches often mimic the symptoms of migraine and tension-type headaches, making it difficult to diagnose in many patients. However, these headaches are rather common in patients with whiplash injuries after a car accident.
Dr. Baker can diagnose whether a neck disorder is behind your headaches and get you feeling better sooner rather than later.
