Headache

Headache sufferers find fast, effective, lasting relief without drugs.

If you live in and are suffering from tension, migraine, cluster or cervical headaches, YOU CAN FIND RELIEF!

Ninety-five percent of headaches are primary headaches, such as tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease but FROM TENSION.

"The greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck," says Dr. George B. McClelland, Chairman of the American Chiropractic Association's (ACA) Board of Governors. "Today, Americans engage in more sedentary activities than they used to, and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture. This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache!

GREAT NEWS!

For many, that relief is only a phone call away.
Henry Chiropractic Clinic, LLC focuses on the treatment of headache pain regardless of its cause.

Why Choose Chiropractic for Headache Relief?

According to the International Chiropractic Association, the primary focus of chiropractic is the detection, reduction and correction of spinal misalignments and nervous system dysfunction. Doctors of chiropractic attempt to get to the root cause of a health problem, rather than just treat the symptoms. Chiropractic seeks to maximize the natural strengths of the body and its capacity to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

Causes Of Headache

There are two types of headaches:

Primary Headaches include tension, migraine, cervicogenic, and cluster headaches and are not caused by other underlying medical conditions. More than 90% of headaches are primary.

Secondary Headaches result from other medical conditions, such as infection or increased pressure in the skull due to a tumor. These account for fewer than 10% of all headaches.

Descriptions of the Primary Headache Types:

1. Tension Headaches: are the most common, affecting more than 75% of all headache sufferers. As many as 90% of adults have had tension headaches.

Tension headaches usually involve a steady ache, rather than a throbbing one, are described as a feeling of pressure or tightening, may last minutes to days, affect both sides of the head, and and do not worsen with routine physical activity. It may also be accompanied by hypersensitivity to light and noise. Some people get tension (and migraine) headaches because of stressful events. Tension headaches may also be chronic, occurring frequently or daily.

Rebound Headache: Rebound headache may occur among people with tension headaches, as well as in those with migraines. It can be the result of taking prescription or nonprescription pain relievers daily or almost every day, contrary to directions on the package label. If prescription or nonprescription pain relievers are overused, headaches may 'rebound' as the last dose wears off--leading you to take more and more pills. This is a great reason to call your chiropractor. Break that cycle!

2. Cervicogenic Headaches:

Cervicogenic Headaches come from disorders of the neck. They are often brought on by neck movement and/or sustained awkward head positioning (such as painting the ceiling or washing the floor). There may also be stiffness in the neck or shoulder and arm pain accompanying the headaches.

3. Migraine Headaches:

Migraine Headaches are less common than tension headaches, but still afflict 25 to 30 million people in the United States As many as 6% of all men, and up to 18% of all women experience a migraine headache at some time.

Migraines may last 4-72 hours and involve the entire head. They can cause throbbing and are aggravated by routine physical activity.

Nausea, sensitivity to light and sound often accompany migraines. An "aura" may occur before head pain begins-- involving a disturbance in vision, and/or an experience of brightly colored or blinking lights in a pattern that moves across the field of vision. About one in five migraine sufferers experiences an aura.

Usually, migraine attacks are occasional, or sometimes as often as once or twice a week, but rarely occur daily.

4. Cluster Headaches:

are pretty rare, affecting about 1% of the population. They are different from migraine and tension headaches. Most cluster headache sufferers are male -- about 85%.

Cluster headaches come in groups or clusters lasting weeks or month. The pain is extremely severe but the attack is brief, lasting no more than a hour or two. The pain centers around one eye, and this eye may be inflamed and watery. There may also be nasal congestion on the affected side of the face.

These "alarm clock" headaches may strike in the middle of the night, and often occur at about the same time each day during the course of a cluster. A history of heavy smoking and drinking is common, and alcohol often triggers attacks.

Testimonials

Paula Freed
I am a retired RN, and have had degenerative disc disease for over 12 yrs. This has caused me a great deal of pain in my lower back. Unable to walk or r do any of the normal everyday activities. I volunteer at the Shriners Hospital for children and was having to give up the one thing I enjoyed most in life. After being referred to Dr. Henry for decompression treatment, I have felt the best I have felt in 12 yrs. Able to return to volunteer work. Dr. Henry has the most extensive knowledge of the nerves and bones of the body to explain just what treatment is needed for a patient. I have the most trust and admiration for his professional opinion and I am walking proof of what he has recommended for my back and neuropathy in my feet. If you follow what he asks of you, chiropractic wellness benefits your whole well being. Thank you and may you bless everyone you touch.

Recovery from 16 mm disc herniation without surgery! I'm glad I got here! From crawling to standing!


Lacey Hampton

I avoided back surgery. I went from a 10/10 pain scale to a zero most of the time.


Karen Fisher

For 15 years I have had pain, which hindered daily activities not to mention the depression the pain caused because of the chronic never ending aspect t. All this stemmed from an auto accident, arthritis and scoliosis. All is Dr. Henry handled and kept me walking. As three years went by the back developed more problems from age. Dr. Henry suggested the new state-of-the-art spinal decompression machine, ice, and cold laser treatment. Six weeks later I can again walk my dog, play in the yard (work) and feel like a human being again with zero pain. Yes, zero pain. At first the suggestion seemed "maybe" and "expensive". Now... How can one possibly put a price on being pain-free! Thank you, Dr. Henry and staff! You listened, you cared about my pain, and you encouraged me to follow through all with positive, uplifting experience. I am so grateful words cannot express how thankful I am. Thank you for giving me my life back.


Ernest Dodd

Pain 80-90% improved with decompression!


Wynetta Stewart

Back pain decreased 80% with decompression. Anyone with real serious back pain should come see you!


Nancy Black

I went to Dr. Henry with lower back and hip pain. The pain was so intense in July of 2012 that it was affecting my daily activities and my sleep. The pain had become unmanageable. Dr. Henry did an x-ray and sent me for an MRI. The results were that I had moderate L4 - S1 chronic degenerative disc disease. I also had a bulging disc. Dr. Henry recommended the Disc Force Treatment. I began the treatment and immediately found relief from the pain. I still see Dr. Henry for adjustments for a hip injury that is unrelated to the disc issue. I also periodically have a Disc Force Treatment to decompress the disc in my spine for maintenance. I recommend this treatment to anyone I felt that I was at the point of having to have surgery and the Disc Force was a much better option. Thank you to Dr. Henry and the staff for their help and compassion during my treatment.


Pat Pearson

I just want to thank you for saving my life. I was scheduled for back surgery when I saw your ad on TV for spinal decompression and a after six weeks of decompression therapy I feel great.


Robin Thomason

I have had chronic pain since I was 13 years old. It's gotten worse over the last five years to the point of not being able to walk. Dr. Henry took th he time to get a proper diagnosis, explain the problems I was having and reasons why - I fractured my back 20 years ago and the vertebrae shifted and now I have a spondylolisthesis. Dr. Henry recommended Disc Force spinal decompression. It is wonderful to be able to wake up and not be in pain. I still have to be careful and I do have some pain but to be this pain-free is so worth it. Thank you! Everyone in the office is very knowledgeable and friendly and I recommended this practice to my friends and family. Dr. Henry has seen two of my three children both suffered from headaches and both of experienced great relief.


Jennifer Danigel

Treatment Options

Chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that gets you feeling better quickly , safely, and effectively.

How Is a Headache Evaluated?

Early diagnosis and treatment are important in identifying the underlying cause for your headaches. In most cases, an in-depth history and physical examination will help determine this.

Once the cause has been identified, we will develop a specific management plan to help eliminate your pain based on your individual needs.

What Is the Treatment for Headaches?

Chiropractors treat patients with tension-type headaches and as well as headaches caused by problems with the joints and muscles in the neck.

Adjustments of the neck, along with stretching and strengthening exercises, have been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of headaches. Massage and other forms of soft-tissue treatment can sometimes be helpful.

Scientists are also investigating other therapies, such as acupuncture, to prevent and treat this disorder.

Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, may be used for an occasional headache, but long-term use can lead to health complications such as gastrointestinal difficulties, liver problems, and kidney failure.
