One of the fundamental aspects of chiropractic care is the acknowledgment of interdependent systems of the human body that goes into developing a treatment plan for each individual we see. Chiropractic care is different from many other forms of health care in that way. While modern medical practices often identify the location of pain and treat the location only, chiropractic care, which has developed over thousands of years, seeks to find the origin of pain and solve the problem at its source. Caron Chiropractic’s staff believe in the power of deductive reasoning and applying the wisdom passed down through centuries to provide relief for people who often suffer far too long before finding solutions.
Non-Invasive Treatment Options to Address the Source of Your Pain
The source of headache pain is a good example of an issue where the origin can be difficult to locate. Sure, you can take some acetaminophen or ibuprofen and feel some relief in a short while when you have a headache. But those medications do not necessarily get to the source of your headache pain, especially if the cause of your headache is located somewhere other than your temples or sinuses. Pain can be felt in the area of the head, but the point of origin could be elsewhere. If your headaches are caused by the impingement of nerves in and around the neck, over the counter medications may provide momentary relief, but the pain is likely to return soon after the medication wears off.
If your headaches are caused by something other than a physical issue, over the counter medications are not likely to help much at all, and over time, they run the risk of causing problems in the kidneys or the liver. If broadly defined stress is the cause of your headaches, we can help. Heightened stress can result in suboptimal blood flow, which can then translate to headache pain. Massage therapy may be plenty to reduce low level stress. The act of breaking up the waste product that builds up in muscle tissue can create an immediate feeling of relaxation and well-being, resulting in the lessening of headache pain. Similarly, chiropractic adjustments help the body regain its natural balance, which takes pressure off muscles, and naturally reduces headache pain.
Acupuncture is also a highly effective treatment for headache pain. The insertion of fine needles into the skin, which may sound painful but is not, encourages the body’s own healing mechanisms to jump-start.
