I have had regular headaches since high school, which seems like a lifetime ago. While they are not pleasant at all, it was just something I learned to live with. My doctor tried different medications, but none of them helped. It didn’t even reduce the frequency of them let alone the severity. I was just grateful that the majority of them were not migraine headaches because that would have been so much worse. I was telling a fairly new friend about them one day, and she asked if I had ever seen a Sacramento chiropractor to help me with them.
I had no idea how a back doctor could help me, but she explained that headaches are not caused because of something in the head. It is often something connected with the nervous system, and that is the area of expertise for chiropractors. I had no idea that chiropractors had been helping people for ages with their headaches, and I quickly made an appointment with one who was not far from my house. I had to go over my medical history with the chiropractor, and then a physical examination. Both were easy enough, and I was glad that he was getting so much information before coming up with a plan for me.
He told me that he wanted to try a series of adjustments first and proceeded to give me my first one during that appointment. I will admit that I was a tad bit scared because I thought it was going to hurt, but I didn’t feel anything more than pressure. He told me I may be sore the following day, but I wasn’t. I went back for a few more adjustments, and I was surprised to see that two weeks had passed without a headache. I normally would have had at least three in that time period before my adjustments!
