As with carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches are also a growing cause for concern, as we all must huddle over our computers and electronic devices, staring at tiny letters and bright screens for hours on end. Other causes of headaches include physical trauma, stress, nutritional deficiencies, dehydration or chemical toxins. The quick fix is to turn to over-the-counter medication, but unfortunately, this will only mask the symptoms temporarily.
At your initial chiropractic examination, Dr. Michael McGivney can determine if chiropractic care is the right approach for your chronic headaches. Often, hunching over a desk, physical trauma or being under stress can cause neck and back misalignments that result in headaches. If this is the case, a combination of chiropractic treatments and lifestyle changes can dramatically alleviate the symptoms and reduce the frequency of your headaches.
