Headaches and migraines are certainly not fun to cope with. Most people turn to medication as the first line of defense. Such things at Tylenol, Advil, and aspirin are at the top of the list.

Is medication good for migraines?
It is important to realize, though, that even if such medications are giving a person a measure of relief, they are not addressing the underlying cause of headaches. Therefore, headaches more-than-likely will return, creating a need for more over-the-counter or maybe even prescription medications. What if there was a better way that corrected the root cause leading to long-lasting relief? Thankfully, such care does exist.
Properly Coping with Headaches in Rochester Hills, Michigan
A series of case studies were performed by Dr. Elster involving 101 patients who suffered from repeated headaches. These people stated that combined they had 1407 headaches in the month preceding Dr. Elster’s care. This averages out to 14 headaches per person in a month’s time. All 101 patients received care for the upper cervical spine, specifically adjustments to their atlas bone – the top bone of the neck. After just 30 days, the results were amazing. Patients now reported having 111 headaches or about 1 headache a month. That equals out to a 92% reduction in headaches for this group of people!
In another study, 19 experts concluded that when spinal adjustments were given the result was almost instant relief for those with Cervicogenic headaches. They also reported seeing long-lasting relief and few side effects for those suffering from tension headaches when compared to taking medication.
The Palmer Research Clinic also saw improvement in 1000 headache patients with all of them reporting that their headaches were either totally eliminated or at least not as severe as before.
These are just a few of the reports available that point to positive results when it comes to using upper cervical chiropractic care to help one cope with headaches. At Balanced Living Chiropractic, we use a gentle method that does not involve popping or twisting the spine to move the bones back into proper place, thereby providing headache relief.
