A while back, one of my patients came in for treatment and stated with frustration, “My brain hurts doc!” My initial reaction: the brain itself has no nerves fibers- impossible! Clearly, the patient was referring to having a headache and I did not make any comments about how the brain has no nerve fibers. I love the way patients describe their symptoms. That’s the beauty of my job; I get to investigate, examine, discover the cause and only then treat to relieve the symptoms. From medications to dark rooms most people have tried anything to reduce headaches before giving Chiropractic a chance. Many have learned to cope with them but for some headaches can be so severe leaving them functionless. Just because something is common doesn’t make it normal. Let me say it again, headaches are not normal. Pain is a signal your body sends for attention. When having headaches, it is important to get examined and evaluated to find out what type of headaches you are having. Headaches are unique in nature. The pain can be dull, achy, sharp, throbbing, constant, mild, or severe. There are many causes for headaches and it can range from being sensitive to light, needing new glasses, caffeine withdrawal to muscle spasms. The brain itself has no nerves that give rise to the sensation of pain. So, what is causing the headaches? They are many types of headaches. Make an appointment with New Hope Chiropractic Center to have an evaluation to see if your headaches can be treated with all natural chiropractic therapies. You’ve tried your remedies now give chiropractic a chance to help.
Yours in Health,
