Headaches & Chiropractic Remedies
Everyone has had headaches from time to time, and we all know how miserable they can make us feel. In fact, at some point in time, 9 out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches that range between mild and dull to throbbing, intense, and debilitating, sometimes to the point of requiring bed rest in a dark, quiet room.
Many studies have identified spinal manipulation therapy (SMT), the main type of care utilized by chiropractors, as being very effective for popular types of headaches—in particular tension-type headaches that arise in the neck. An important 2001 study reported that SMT provided almost immediate relief for headaches that arose in the neck with significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting results compared with commonly prescribed medications.
Another interesting study that found similar results included tracking the prevalence/frequency of headaches after treatment stopped. The authors of the study reported the patients receiving SMT had continued to experience sustained benefits throughout the following weeks, and even months, in contrast to those in a medication treatment group where headaches came back almost immediately after they discontinued treatment.
Because each patient is unique, the type of care provided by Cascade Spine & Injury Center will be individually determined based on the findings, the patient’s age, comfort, and preference of both the provider and patient.
Acupuncture was introduced to the United States in the 70’s and has been gaining traction as one of the original holistic healing techniques. It treats the source of the problem instead of the symptoms. The goal of the treatment is to release blockages in the flow of energy where it is deficient and move it away from where it is excess. Acupuncture can be delivered by sterile needle, laser, electricity, and massage and/or pressure
Conditions that are treated successfully at Cascade Spine & Injury include all types of pain such as neck and back, sports injuries- knees, hips and ankles as well as shoulders, elbows and wrists
