Headaches and Chiropractic Care

Sure, you know that if you have back pain or experience an injury to your back, it is likely you will at some point see a chiropractor.  But did you also know that chiropractors treat patients for a wide array of illnesses and other health conditions, including headaches?  As a matter of fact, chiropractic care is a great, all-natural way to treat this very common problem that affects approximately nine out of every ten people.  So, how is it that those spinal alignments performed by chiropractors can alleviate your chronic headache pain?  Read on to find out more about chiropractic care for headaches:

The cause of headaches

In order to understand how chiropractic care can be of benefit to headache sufferers, it is important to understand why Headaches happen in the first place.  Ninety-five percent of all Headaches stem from tension in the neck.  These are categorized as primary headaches, and include cluster, migraine, and tension headaches.  Common chiropractic treatments like spinal manipulation, acupuncture, and deep tissue massage can help to alleviate that tension in the neck, and are therefore ideal for treating headache pain.

How spinal manipulation works.  The process of spinal manipulation is exactly what it sounds like: the chiropractor manually adjusts your spine, with the intent of aligning your vertebrae.  This eases swelling and tension in between your discs, which in turn relieves your nerves of pressure.  Believe it or not, the nerves in your spine communicate with your entire body by way of the central nervous system; that means they are responsible for pain in a number of different places.  People who suffer from tension Headaches and headaches that originate in the neck are especially responsive to spinal manipulation.

Overall health guidance.  Chiropractors are trained to develop a multifaceted treatment plan that involves a holistic, total body approach to healing.  Therefore, when you receive chiropractic care, you can expect a number of treatment elements in addition to the spinal manipulation, deep tissue massage, and acupuncture you might receive in the chiropractic office.  These include advice on exercises, dietary supplements, herbal remedies, and vitamins that may improve the duration, frequency, and intensity of your headaches.

If you suffer from headaches, then you owe it to yourself to explore the possibility of chiropractic care for the relief of your symptoms.  You might be surprised to find that a chiropractor can do for your headaches what those bottles of pills couldn’t do.

Chiropractic Philosophy

Chiropractic Emblem - Chiropractor Smyrna TNThe Philosophy of Chiropractic differs dramatically from a Medical Philosophy of health. Medical Philosophy is based on MECHANISM. This philosophy of health views the body as a one-dimensional, linear machine where the WHOLE equals the SUM of its PARTS. This basically means that in a diseased state, medicine prescribes an organ specific drug or transplants a new part to keep the system ‘working’. This approach to health is termed an OUTSIDE-IN approach where external factors such as drugs and surgery are used to effect a change on the inside of the body.

The problem with a medical philosophy to HEALTH is that it deals with sickness care or crisis care and NOT wellness care or true health care. When we apply a medical approach to staying well, medicine is not as effective as other means. The side effects of drugs and surgery are some of the leading causes of death in the world today. Prescription medications are simply not safe.

Chiropractic Philosophy is based on VITALISM. A vitalistic philosophy views the body as a multi-dimensional organism controlled by an internal life-force or energy, where the WHOLE is GREATER than the SUM of its PARTS. This life-force flows via the nervous system to every cell, tissue and organ, instructing them what to do & how to respond to external forces. Since we self-heal and self-regulate, blockage to the nervous system by way of subluxation (skeletal misalignments that impair nerve flow and causes sub-optimal body function), results in eventual poor health &/or disease.

This approach to health is termed an INSIDE-OUT approach where the body is stimulated by an adjustment to correct itself naturally. Chiropractic neither removes or adds anything to the body; it only stimulates self-healing. Chiropractic is remarkably SAFE; anywhere from 100 to 1000 times safer than any drug including everyday pain “maskers” such as aspirin, acetaminophen & ibuprofen.

Chiropractic Adjustment Defined

Chiropractor Smyrna TN - Adjustment techniqueBeel Chiropractic Center uses a hands-on approach to natural healing. Their techniques do not involve treatment using drugs and surgery, since chiropractors believe these modes of therapy to be more invasive and less natural to the body. Drugs often times cause a myriad of side effects, kill hundreds of thousands of people annually and typically do not cure the source of the health problem; but merely mask it. Dr Beel treats the nervous system by removing subluxations which cause nerve interference, resulting in poor health over time.

Our doctors of chiropractic use their hands and some instruments to perform an adjustment. The adjustment involves a gentle, quick movement directed at the subluxation to move it into the correct position. This immediately removes the subluxation and the interference to the nerve, but often times doesn’t immediately stop the pain symptoms. Why? Subluxations, if left alone over time will lead to degeneration. A course of regular adjustments is necessary, just like regular exercise & proper diet are necessary to correct an overweight condition. Getting you healthy takes time. Many patients come to the chiropractor after having many subluxations left uncorrected for many years. It took time to get into poor skeletal alignment; as a result, it takes time to correct it and get healthy.

When choosing a Chiropractor in Smyrna TN, seek out experience & technical skills of course, but just as important, find a chiropractor that still has the compassion & empathy required to fully understand your unique situation. Dr RJ Beel at Beel Chiropractic Center will meet your phyical AND emotional needs. To find lasting relief from your pain symptoms, call Beel Chiropractic Center today at 615-355-6186.
