Headaches shouldn’t be a normal part of your life. Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. Headaches can often signify a larger problem. We can determine the specific type of headaches you are experiencing to fix the problem at the source. Let us eliminate headaches as a burden of everyday life.

What Commonly Causes Recurring Headaches?

Poor Posture

The most common cause of headaches is poor posture and the increased use of technology. Sitting at a computer and using cell phones for hours a day leads to an increased stress on the eyes and the upper part of the neck. These stressors are common culprits to chronic, nagging headaches.

Alignment & Motion Range

When performing physical examinations, we often detect reduced range of motion, loss of normal spinal curves, and mechanical restrictions. These structural interferences affect the way our nervous system functions and communicates with the body. This often results in headaches.

Environment & Lifestyle

While structural problems with the neck lead to common headaches, other environmental and lifestyle factors are a major cause of headaches, as well. Stress, anxiety, preservatives in our food, and even certain scents can also be major contributors.

How Recurring Headaches Impact Your Life

Trouble Focusing & Thinking Clearly

Headaches are more than just a physical symptom. They affect your ability to think clearly, focus for long periods of time, and connect thoughts together. This not only affects your work environment, but it also can have a huge impact on your personal life and relationships.

Treating your headaches can improve the quality of both your work and personal life. Many of our patients don’t realize how much they’ve been suffering until they start experiencing life without regular headaches.

Being Unable to Get Up & Enjoy Your Day

Certain types of migraine headaches are more than just a nagging discomfort. Some are completely debilitating. They might prevent you from being able to get out of bed, drive a car, or even be exposed to light. This has can have a severe impact on quality family time, personal time, and living life to your fullest potential.

Patients that have grown accustomed to chronic headaches may not fully realize how much they’re negatively impacting their life. But once we can help you find lasting relief, you’ll truly appreciate life without them.

Consequences of Self-Medication

Because so many people deal with various forms of moderate to severe headaches, it might seem like your headache problem is normal, and using over-the-counter medication daily is the only solution.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Over-using medication can cause serious problems over time. Medication only treats the symptoms, not the cause of your headaches. We’re here to provide a long-lasting treatment that solves your headache problems and gives you the tools to prevent them from returning.
