Headache is a frequent complaint that we see daily in our office. One estimate is that headaches occur in 9 out of 10 people. Some are mild but annoying, localized pain that may be attributed to one or more of a variety of causes. The pain can stem from stress, injuries, poor posture, or just everyday activities. Dr. John Chait has helped a lot of patients in Sarasota recover from chronic headaches, and we can quite possibly help you too.
Chronic, recurring headaches, which can be the most serious, are of two major types — migraine and tension. These may be frequent and intense, and may involve nausea, severe throbbing, irritability and sensitivity to bright light common to the migraine. These headaches can be debilitating. They can affect the vision and bodily functions, bring on pain and sensation elsewhere in the body and even change moods and personality. If you suffer too, you are not alone.
First, we’ll do a thorough examination to determine the underlying reason of your headache pain. Then, using a range of methods, we’ll help reestablish your spine’s normal functioning to alleviate strain on your body and nervous system. Some patients enjoy results quickly. Others notice a slow decline in their symptoms after several weeks or longer of chiropractic care. It’s impossible to predict. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time.
Here is an interesting quote from Peter Rothbart MD regarding chronic headaches “It appears that Chiropractors have been right all along. A team of doctors at Syracuse University have established with scientific, anatomical proof, that damaged structures in the neck (sublixations) are the cause of most chronic headaches.” Contact Chait Chiropractic Center at (941)371-1070 to schedule a complimentary consultation.
