Headache Relief in Charlotte
Chances are everyone has experienced a headache sometime in their life. An average of 9 out of 10 people experience headaches. Sometimes headaches are just the normal part of life and sometimes they get out of control. Although many people have experienced headaches, not very many people have experienced extreme headaches. The type of headache that makes you crawl into a ball in the dark and not leave for a day. The type of headache that would make you call out of work, to cancel important social events. Or the type of headache that effects your relationships and your family. The biggest problem with headaches is they are often misdiagnosis. Did you know, there is an alternative and a more effective way to treat headaches, aside from using painkillers? A wide range of chiropractic studies have proven the effectiveness of chiropractic on headaches. In fact, the outcomes of the participants in the studies ranged from good to excellent. Chiropractic care can provide instant relief from those suffering from headaches. The best part about chiropractic care is that there are much fewer side effects in comparison to using medication. This is done by focusing on the cause of a headache, rather than the symptoms.
When people get extreme headaches they are most often classified as a migraine headache, mostly because the person experiencing headache is trying to quantify how bad it is to either their primary care physician, friends, or family. This gets confusing when people are trying to get treatment for headaches. Often, they end up getting treatment for migraine headaches when in fact, their headache is actually a different kind of headache all together, which would require a different type of treatment for relief.
At Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center, P.C. we strive to get to true reason of why you are experiencing a headache. We also strive to treat the cause of your symptoms not just your pain. Many times this may lead you to reevaluate your current treatment, if it's not making an impact on your current symptoms, and to discover a new approach.
We look at the whole person, their stress, their diet, their driving habits, their work habits, their recreational habits, their posture, possible food allergies, and possible musculoskeletal interference. By taking the time to take a good look on what could be contributing to your headaches, we can identify the proper corrective treatment.

We require a proper history and physical exam to discover the underlying cause and not just cover up the symptom, creating a dependency on a pill.
Headaches can range in severity and location on the head. Swelling or inflammation around the structures of the head, as well as, referral pains from tight muscles can cause your pain. The pain may be a sharp, constant, dull, throbbing, intense or mild.
Headaches can be very stressful. Other than an injury to an arm or a leg or low back or neck a scrape or bruise. A headache is something that occurs under the surface.
