There are many great reasons why seeing a chiropractor for headaches should be your first port of call; essentially it is because the care that you receive is conservative. It is a non-drug based approach. The United States of America makes up about 4% of the world’s population, yet we consume over 50% of prescription drugs. It is a kind of reactive health care system, i.e., just treating the symptoms instead of delving a little deeper and figuring out the root cause of the issue.
That is exactly what chiropractors do. We highlight the root cause of the health issue and then, by not band-aiding the issue, chiropractors can allow the spine and the nervous system, which is the most important organ system in our body, to be addressed in a conservative manner. It is essential for us to take care of our spine and nervous system. Just look at the example of superman, Christopher Reeves, he had an upper cervical neck injury and became paralyzed and couldn’t even regulate his own body temperature. And obviously, unfortunately, over time his body shut down.
That is why it is so important for us to take care of our spine and our nervous system. It is because it controls everything we do, specifically how we feel and function. That’s exactly what chiropractors specialize in, making sure your spine is in alignment and your nervous system is functioning satisfactorally, and when those things happen together, we just have great function in life. It is an unrestricted and pain free life.
