New Solutions to Headaches in Olympia WA

Chiropractic Olympia WA Head Pain

Five main types of headaches in Olympia WA:

  1. Tension headaches
  2. Sinus headaches
  3. Cluster headaches
  4. Classic migraines
  5. Non-classic migraines

The one thing all of these headaches in have in common is the western solution of pharmaceuticals. Almost every type of headache, the number one common solution a patient is approached with his pharmaceuticals. It does not matter if it's stress, depression, acid reflux, joint pain, thyroid issues, headaches, or migraines… the suggested treatment is always a pharmaceutical. What most Americans don't realize is that other countries don't do this, there is a time for drugs as a solution but it should not be the solution for every ailment.

I once had a new patient in Olympia WA that had migraines 3 to 4 times per week, I cannot comprehend how this person functioned at work every day with 3 to 4 migraines per week. She could barely keep her eyes open, had a hard time getting out of bed, could not concentrate and that was her life every day. When I asked her if she had ever been to a chiropractor before, her answer was no because her doctor said there's nothing she can do except take Topamax for her migraines. With some thorough education, I was able to get her to commit to a 30 day care plan. Now after 30 days we did not completely eliminate her migraines, but she was averaging one per week now. This was a life changer for her and injected enough reality for her to commit to a care plan. Over the next 60 days she was able to get off of her medication and live a normal life.

After her 60 day re-exam she had this question for me," Why did no practitioner, doctor. tell me about chiropractic for migraines?"

It was a simple answer for me, I told her that natural healthcare, including Chiropractic does not have the lobbying power to have commercials promoting their products,. The pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars on marketing and promoting drugs as a number one option for every condition known to man. I also told her that you cannot blame your medical doctor, because they do not know what we do and they do not how chiropractic works. No one visits a medical school to train medical doctors on how Chiropractic works with condition such as migraines. Pharmaceutical companies heavily are involved in medical institutions to make sure their products are at the forefront. Again, there is a time and place for pharmaceuticals, but it should not be the solution for everything.

So the next time you have a tension headache or migraine or just general neck pain. Ask yourself whats the underlying cause and what are some natural solutions I could try before I pop open that pill bottle.
