One of the most common complaints we see in our office is people suffering unnecessarily with headaches and migraines. It seems headaches are so common that people think they’re normal! Headaches are not normal. When patients (frequently mothers) come in with headaches, it’s not just affecting them, but their entire family. If you’ve ever suffered with headaches, you know it affects your mood, family time, your work, and every aspect of your life. You’re exhausted but you “power through” because you don’t have time to slow down because people need you.

Maybe you’ve tried ice, heat, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, caffeine, prescription drugs, physical therapy, and/or homeopathic medicines.

While these might help a bit when you are experiencing a migraine, they don’t prevent them from occurring.

We’re here to tell you there is HOPE! Instead of being REACTIVE to the headache, be PROACTIVE. Headaches start with either physical, chemical, or emotional stress. Most of them originate in the nerves of the neck. Only Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to evaluate, identify, and adjust the spine to correct nerve issues in the neck that CAUSE headaches.

A week doesn’t go by when a patient doesn’t tell me their headaches are greatly improved or gone completely! Their energy is up, sleeping better, performing better at work, and enjoying better quality time with their kids or family. Here at Waukee Wellness and Chiropractic, we do a thorough exam and a very specific x-ray series to determine the segments in your neck that are healthy and the ones that are not. Then we create a specific care plan to get you the fastest, most effective results. It will include Chiropractic adjustments, home stretches/exercises and maybe some nutritional suggestions. We utilize many techniques and styles which allow us to adjust people of all ages. (With some techniques, you may hear a “noise”. With other techniques, there will be no “noise”. If you have a preference, let us know.)

If you or someone you know is suffering unnecessarily with headaches, don’t lose hope. Call us to get scheduled and start getting your life back. We’re here to help.
