Alternative treatments for headaches in Asheville NC

By Dr. Mathew Stockstad, Asheville Chiropractor

Headaches are common in our community.  It is reported that 90 percent of Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, some cause debilitating pain and for some, they are accompanied by nausea.

So.. What do you do when you suffer from a headache in Asheville NC? Grit your teeth and bare it? Lie down in a dark room and hope you will fall asleep till it passes.  Maybe you resort to taking a pill in the hope that the pain will go away.

There is a better alternative. It's called chiropractic.

Benefits of Spinal Adjustments in Asheville NC

Research shows that spinal adjustments are done properly which is the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic - may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck (according to the American Chiropractic Association).

A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, N.C., found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headaches than a commonly prescribed medication.
