Chiropractic Treatment For Migraine Headaches

If you’ve ever had a migraine headache, you know how debilitating it can be. For millions of people, the onset of a migraine means their life has effectively gone on hold, because they can do nothing but lie in a darkened room and wait till the pain goes away. Indeed, the Migraine Research Foundation says that about one in four U.S. households has a member who gets migraines, and that adds up to more than ten percent of the population. What’s worse, migraines are most frequent in the working population — the 25 to 55 age range — which costs the U.S. economy billions of dollars each year in lost work days.

Migraine sufferers have tried many remedies without success, but there is growing evidence that chiropractic treatment from a Chalfont chiropractor can alleviate or even stop migraines. Several recent studies have shown that chiropractic spinal manipulation can be effective, especially since the cervical spine is often the source of migraine headaches. These treatments have compared favorably to pharmacotherapy in the studies.

It doesn’t seem to make a difference if the chiropractic treatments by a chiropractor in chalfont are manual or instrument assisted. The studies show that both treatments are equally effective.

The important fact is that migraine sufferers should try a Chalfont PA chiropractor as a therapy, because it may offer relief from a chronic condition that often is resistant to other forms of treatment. The earlier the treatment the better, because as migraine sufferers know, an effective treatment when the symptoms first appear can sometimes stave off a full blown attack.

Chalfont Area Chiropractor Helps Prevent Chronic Back Pain

If you remember the parts played by John Wayne in the movies, they were always very manly men, who shrugged off pain and injury, and just went about their business of fighting bad guys in various settings. Wayne’s character would routinely get shot, beat up, or injured in other ways, but he rarely ever complained about it.

Well, that may have worked for John Wayne in the movies, but it doesn’t work in real life. In real life when your body has pain, it means that there’s an issue that should be treated by a Chalfont chiropractor, or the pain will come back.

However, when it comes to lower back pain, many people aren’t listening to the message. According to a study reported in the journal Spine, of 443 people with lower back pain, who were being treated in a primary care setting and were followed up after two years, only 8 percent of those people said they had taken sick leave because of the pain. That means they didn’t think the pain was very acute, or it could mean they thought they could just grin and bear it, go about their business without really acknowledging the seriousness of the condition.

However, this same study found that a full 19 percent of these patients still had chronic back pain after two years. Now, this probably doesn’t mean that they were being incapacitated by intense back pain, but they had a condition where they were constantly feeling a low grade pain that never really went away. Chronic pain is a constant reminder, always in the background of your life, and it can make you miserable because it never leaves.

The bottom line is that the pain doesn’t go away on its own. You need treatment. You can’t be a John Wayne and try to muddle through your life without treatment, because the condition will keep coming back. Chiropractic treatment with s Chalfont pa chiropractor has been shown to be effective in treating lower back pain. Get treatment of your acute lower back pain before it turns chronic.

Doylestown Chiropractor Discusses Cymbalta Commercial

I was home the other day for lunch and a Cymbalta commercial came on.  During the commercial, the voice over said how effective Cymbalta was for chronic musculoskeletal pain, which I was not aware it was used for.

cymbalta

However 2 other things that stood out the most to me was that the recommended dosage was once a day and the long list of side effects.  According to their website:

Cymbalta should generally be administered once daily without regard to meals.

In clinical studies, the most common side effects identified in people taking Cymbalta included:

  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleepiness
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • Decreased appetite
  • Increased sweating

ALSO:

Cymbalta may be associated with serious side effects. Call your healthcare provider right away or seek emergency help if you experience any of the following:

  • Itching, right upper-belly pain, dark urine, yellow skin/eyes, or unexplained flu-like symptoms, which may be signs of life-threatening liver problems. Severe liver problems, some fatal, have been reported
  • High fever, confusion, stiff muscles, muscle twitching, or racing heart rate, which may be signs of serotonin syndrome, a potentially life-threatening condition
  • Abnormal bleeding, especially if Cymbalta is taken with aspirin, NSAID pain relievers (like ibuprofen or naproxen), or blood thinners
  • Serious, possibly life-threatening skin reactions, which may include skin blisters, peeling rash, mouth sores, hives, or other allergic reactions
  • Abnormal mood (mania), which may include greatly increased energy, severe trouble sleeping, racing thoughts, talking more or faster than usual, and reckless behavior
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Decreased blood pressure upon standing, which can cause dizziness or fainting, mostly when first starting or increasing the dose. Cymbalta can also increase blood pressure. Your healthcare provider should check your blood pressure prior to and while taking Cymbalta
  • Headache, weakness or feeling unsteady, confusion, problems concentrating, or memory problems, which may be signs of low sodium levels in the blood. Elderly people may be at greater risk
  • Problems with urination, including decreased flow or inability to pass any urine
  • Changes in appetite or weight. Children and adolescents should have height and weight monitored

I know in my Doylestown chiropractic practice, that if I were to suggest that someone come see me everyday for their back pain AND I told them that you may experience any or all of the listed side effects, people would think that I am crazy!

So my question is, why are so many willing to take a prescription drug everyday, with this long list of potentially deadly side effects, yet so many balk at seeing a chiropractor 1-2 times a month?  At my office we have been helping the residents of Doylestown, Jamison, Warrington, Chalfont and the entire Central Bucks area rediscover a life without pain for over 15.  If you want to get off that medication train and start a non-surgical, drugless approach to your pain, give my office a call today.

How Chiropractic Helps Sport Injuries In Chalfont, PA

When most people think of sports injuries, they may consider those injuries that occur in full contact sports such as football. While these sports do have the chance of causing injury, individual who choose other sports, considering them safer can also suffer injuries. Safe sports have the potential to lead to injuries that need the attention of a Chalfont chiropractor.

Runners put a lot of stress on the legs. While the exercise is generally good for the body, injuries can keep the runner off the track. Chiropractic exams, including x-rays can determine if the cause of one’s pain is a stress fracture torn muscle or ligament or some other problem. Chiropractic can offer therapy for some conditions affecting runners, but others may require the help of other care providers.

Surfers can also suffer injury while enjoying the water. Some of the most common injuries include strains and sprains. The surfer can avoid many of these injuries by taking time to warm-up and stretch before hitting the water. However, if injuries occur, surfers can speed their healing through the care offered through chiropractic.

The game of golf can be enjoyed by people of all ages. However the golf swing is a very athletic move. During the swing, it is possible to injure practically any joint in the body. If a game of golf leaves your feeling more sore than usual, it may be time to schedule a chiropractic appointment for an adjustment to speed healing.

Even the Wii, the video game designed to get players out of their seat can lead to athletic injures. Whether sword fighting villains or Wii bowling, it is possible to overdo and suffer injuries. Chiropractic can help you to get back out of your seat.

When your favorite sport leads to injury a Chalfont chiropractor may help. The care provided can get you back in the game. Chiropractors offer natural therapy that is noninvasive.
