TexStar Chiropractic Clinic Headache Treatment

New research shows that spinal manipulation, the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic, is an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.

Also, a 1995 study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for tension headaches and that those who received chiropractic treatment after four weeks experienced a sustained therapeutic benefit in contrast with those patients who received commonly prescribed medications.

Dr. Henry can apply one or more of the following proven successful treatment options:

• Perform spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments (such as spinal decompression) to improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on your system. 
• Provide nutritional advice, recommending a change in diet and perhaps the addition of B complex vitamins. 
• Offer advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercises and relaxation techniques. This advice should help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and upper back. Doctors Henry's extensive training help his patients with multiple sources of pain (not just back and neck pain). He knows how tension in the spine relates to problems in other parts of the body, and they can take steps to relieve those problems.
