Headaches and Migraines: Did You Know?

Women get headaches 50% more often, for longer periods of time, and more severely than men. In addition, they are two-and-a-half times more likely to suffer from migraine headaches

Headaches and Migraines can be annoying, painful, and downright debilitating. Thus they can affect all aspects of life, including work, leisure activities, and, most importantly, relationships. Although somewhat common, this pain is not normal. It is your body’s warning sign that something is amiss and needs attention. Contrary to what your doctor might say, peer-reviewed, medical research shows most headaches originate from neck misalignment.

Is Medication the Solution?

Painful headaches and migraines often lead people to take common over-the-counter medications to try and get some relief. Unfortunately, the overuse of these medications have raised disturbing questions about the safety of over-the-counter, non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory pain relievers (NSAIDs) such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve, Naproxen, Ibuprofen and others.

Although not classified as an anti-inflammatory, Acetaminophen or Tylenol use is responsible for 12% of all patients hospitalized with drug overdoses and 40% of patients with acute liver failure; the kidneys are also severely taxed by use/overuse of this drug. All of these commonly used medications may make one feel temporarily better, however, they can clearly have a detrimental impact on long-term health and will most certainly not address the CAUSE of a migraine, just the symptom.

Your Neck is the Source

Regardless of what your doctor, pharmacist, friend or even a Tylenol ad has told you, under most circumstances, a migraine is not normal. It is clearly your body’s way of letting you know you have a problem. Many people blame outside influences on their headaches and migraines. Examples include stress from work, interpersonal relationships, sports, barometric pressure, fluorescent light, and coffee. Agreed, many life-factors can cause stress. However, if your body is strong and sound, and your posture is within the normal range, the stresses from the world we live in should not cause a migraine or any other pain for that matter. If they do, there is most likely an underlying structural problem.

Your next step is to figure out if you have a structural problem. Have your body’s structure and biomechanics assessed by an expert in posture – as that will most likely get to the cause.

It is such a treasure to have found CSS this year. I have struggled with chronic pain, illness and disability for over 27 years and didn’t think I could ever get and relief. I have a long road ahead but I can actually feel like I am starting to move better. The most important thing is that the staff is so welcoming and supportive that I look forward to every appointment which is not how I feel about some of the other places I have been. On days that I am really struggling I walk in the door and feel cared for and happy and the sweet and hysterical staff often keep me distracted from my pain for awhile. They work together and they work hard for their patients.

CSS is an awesome place, associates and medical team are very professional and knowledgeable. I feel like I have a second family who wholeheartedly cares about my health. My health has improved tremendously! I would recommend CSS to everyone that I come in contact with. I am so happy that I have chosen CSS. Dr. Shapiro and his team are awesome!

These guys are consistently amazing with what they do. I was on the path to back surgery and now I’m not thanks to CSS!

Excellent care and individualized recovery plans. I was experiencing chronic upper back and neck pain and within the first month it was drastically reduced. After two months it was almost gone entirely. Highly recommend!

Cannot recommended Complete Spine solutions enough. They offer care unlike any chiropractic you will find. They correct your spine rather than just “cracking” you and sending you on your way. The entire staff has been so well trained they make the entire process a breeze. Flexible appointment times. Dr Shapiro and Dr Asli are so kind and caring. Both treat you with the upmost care and individual attention. They make a point to remember your name and personality and cater to that.
