Bottom Line: Headaches make it difficult to concentrate and communicate, leaving you ready to curl up on the couch and pull a blanket over your head. Some people suffer from headaches multiple times per week! As you can imagine, this can leave you feeling tired, irritable, and sometimes even depressed. But did you know that new research has shown a new path to find relief? Researchers have discovered Chiropractic care can provide over a 50% reduction in pain by the first follow-up.
Why it Matters: Over 75% of adults suffer from headaches, many with migraines. What can they do? Take medication every day? Take a few days off from their active lifestyles? Well, with Chiropractic care, they won’t need to. Adjustments can decrease the frequency AND severity of headaches. By reducing the overall pain level, frequency, and severity, you can get back to your regular activities quickly and regain your quality of life.
Next Steps: We all know people who continually suffer from migraine headaches. Share this post with a friend or co-worker who you know has struggled with migraine headaches. Many people don’t understand that the best treatment for their headaches may be in a Chiropractor’s office instead of at the bottom of a bottle of pills. This message may change their life!
