Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line in the
Beacon Hill Plaza.
I am also a Certified Posture Expert and Certified Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute.
Today we are going to talk about headaches
. Most every single person will experience some type of headache at least once in their lifetime.
But the good news is that most of time these headaches are the result of spinal misalignments or postural distortions in the cervical spine (neck).
Recall that the head and neck constitute Posture Quadrant 1, and posture distortions here will irritate the spinal joints and compress on the spinal nerve roots and the top three side-effects of this are headaches, migraines and neck pain.
But I must caution you that there are signs and symptoms that would point towards a complicated headache such as a sudden, intense, unusual headache.
Or noticeable visual or auditory disturbances, dizziness and loss of balance, mental confusion, difficulty speaking, paralysis and/or weakness along one side of the face or body, nausea and vomiting.
If any of these are present, it is best to grab your phone and hit 911 asap.
Also, headaches that get progressively worse over a 24 to 48 hour period or headaches following head trauma would require an immediate visit to your family doc.
Otherwise, postural correction of the neck – chiropractic adjustments in combination with spinal traction and corrective posture exercises – gets fantastic results with headaches.
So, if you or your kids are struggling with headaches, please give us a call to schedule your appointment for your free initial consultation which includes a free detailed postural analysis.
