Headaches!

Ever had a headache? Aspirin or Ibuprofen is something people often turn to during a headache, but these merely work to mask the pain. In reality, the pain does not go away, you just don’t feel it. Imagine you were driving down the road and your car started to make a funny noise so you turn up the radio. The problem is still there, you just don't notice it.

While an aspirin may be an effective way for some people to “treat” the pain of headaches, for others, popping pills just doesn’t cut it… so they turn to chiropractic. But does chiropractic work for treating headaches?

What Does The Research Say?
In 2001, researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, North Carolina noticed the patients who had undergone chiropractic treatment felt relief significantly faster after undergoing spinal adjustments.

Then a 1995 study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics shows that people who had received chiropractic care showed tremendous benefits. This is largely different from medication and pill-based treatment, which requires the patient to take in a suggested dose on a regular basis to mask their pain.

Muscular Tension Headaches

Tension headaches are usually caused by muscle contractions in your head, neck, and shoulder muscles. They are one of the most common headaches experienced by most Americans and are often caused by “emotional stress” that lead to stiffness in your muscles and joints.

Tension headaches, if not properly treated, can lead to a vicious circle of more muscular tension leading to more intense headaches. Chiropractic adjustments can be employed to help tension headaches because it restores the proper alignment of your spine and at the same time releases the built-up tension in your muscles.

Serious Vascular Headaches

Headaches that arise due to abnormalities in your vascular system (arteries) are more commonly known as “migraines”. Although many Americans experience at least one migraine over the course of their lives, nobody knows the exact reason why they exist.

Medical studies have shown that migraines are sometimes triggered by a change in the hormones arising from exposure to food, smells, changes in the weather, and even emotional stress. When these changes in your body’s hormone levels occur, the blood vessels located in your head dilate, causing other symptoms like nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and visual auras, followed by a severe headache that cannot be treated effectively or even disguised by aspirin and other over-the-counter medications.

Chiropractic adjustments are effective because they free up your nervous system. Migraine headaches can be treated and prevented effectively with Chiropractic care at this office. If you or someone you know is suffering from headaches, please make an appointment today.

Did You Know…


Every part of the body is controlled by nerves connected with the spine.

Chiropractic care corrects interferences to your nervous system, which allows your body to function properly.

There are about 206 individual bones in the average adult skeleton, with the backbone as the central core.

The only bone in the human body that some people think has no use is the coccyx, located at the base of the spine, but you know better.

The "backbone" is an engineering masterpiece made up of 24 donut shaped bones called vertebrae that work together to protect your delicate, sensitive nervous system.

Low back pain is the second leading cause of lost work days, second only to the common cold! Make sure you’re checked regularly for problems in your spine, as you DO NOT have to have symptoms to have these hidden problems.

It is estimated that stress is the major cause of 75% of all illness.

A Giraffe's neck contains 7 vertebrae, the same as you and I.

A common little caterpillar has more muscles than a human body.

Despite the hump, a camel's spine is straight, yours is not!

40 Million Swine Flu Vaccines Written Off As Trash!

This is one of the reasons it’s good to have your spine and nervous system checked on a regular basis.

That headline is from a July 1, 2010 story in Medical News Today documenting the large overproduction of swine flu vaccines. Even amidst an ongoing push from the pharmaceutical companies and medical groups trying even now to persuade people to get a vaccine against a problem that never really materialized, millions of doses of US taxpayer paid vaccine doses must be destroyed with millions more to follow.

According to the Medical News Today story, a full one quarter of the produced and paid for swine flu vaccines “expired” at the end of June 2010, and were to be incinerated. As more vaccines expire, that number will go higher and may mean that as much as half of all the swine flu vaccine produced will need to be destroyed. The cost for the vaccines that are being destroyed to date is estimated to be about $260 million.

The H1N1, swine flu turned out to be less serious than the normal seasonal flu and claimed less lives than the normal flu does. Criticism mounted as a review of the so called pandemic showed that the death toll was only one-third of what normally occurs during a normal flu season. Additionally, countries from all over the world are also destroying their stockpiles of vaccines as they are also worthless.

A July 2, 2010 story in the New American, reported on an investigation conducted by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism that exposed improper conflicts of interest among World Health Organization (WHO) scientists. The inquiry found that at least three of the organization's "experts" were paid by vaccine manufacturers. The BMJ wrote, "Despite repeated requests, the WHO has failed to provide any details about whether such conflicts were declared by the relevant experts and what, if anything, was done about them."

In Europe the Council of Europe strongly criticized the World Health Organization's fear-mongering and vaccine promotion by saying, "The handling by the WHO of the H1N1 pandemic led to a waste of large sums of public money and unjustified scares and fears about health risks faced by the European public. They went on to note that, "(There was), overwhelming evidence that the seriousness of the pandemic was vastly overrated by WHO."

Dr. Ulrich Keil, a WHO advisor, conceded in an interview with the Associated Press, "Each time the so-called ‘experts‘ told us that millions of people would be killed worldwide by the respective viruses. We have learned that the experts were utterly wrong." What does this mean to you?
