Tension headaches can takeover your day. The pounding pain, the overwhelming ache, and the inability to rid of a headache can impact your work, your day to day activities and can even result in you missing out on events that you otherwise would have enjoyed.
Unfortunately, medication does not always provide relief and always targets the symptoms, never the cause. Chiropractic Care, however, addresses the tension that causes the headaches and has been proven an effective treatment in various research studies.
Moyer Total Wellness believes in improving your health from all avenues and overcoming illness, even in the form of headaches.
Below are excerpts of two separate studies that discuss Chiropractic Care (spinal manipulation) and headache treatment.
“Cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache.” Duke Evidence Report, McCrory, Penzlen, Hasselblad, Gray (2001)
“The results of this study show that spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for tension headaches. . . Four weeks after cessation of treatment . . . the patients who received spinal manipulative therapy experienced a sustained therapeutic benefit in all major outcomes in contrast to the patients that received amitriptyline therapy, who reverted to baseline values.” -Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, Boline et al. (1995)
