Headaches come in a variety of forms and a wide range of intensities. They can have a number of different causes. Most are caused by muscle tension that results from problems in the neck. While traditional medicine attempts to mask the pain with painkillers, chiropractic takes a different approach that does not involve the use of drugs.
Online PR News – 23-February-2010 – – Fountain Valley, CA 02/23/10 - Valentine Chiropractic is pleased to announce that Drs Michael and Leonard Valentine offer safe, effective solutions to headache pain without resorting to drugs. Because most headaches actually originate in the neck, doctors of chiropractic are typically able to make slight adjustments to the alignment of the vertebrae in the neck and provide rapid relief.
Both doctors are skilled in chiropractic manipulation of the spine and are constantly updating their knowledge with the latest in technological advances. Procedures like spinal decompression, massage therapy and certain types of physical therapy can often provide more relief than one could expect from commonly available analgesic medications.
In addition to the pain of normal tension headaches, the doctors have been successful at providing relief from the pain of migraines and fibromyalgia as well. These headaches are often so severe that all a person wants to do is curl up in a dark room and pray the pain will stop soon. Finding relief is not always easy, but chiropractors can help a great deal.
These doctors are also able to provide relief from back pain and the pain of herniated or bulging discs. In many cases, this also helps with headache pain as the body gets nerve impulses crossed at times and pain is felt in another away from where it is originating.
