About 80% of the world’s population will experience at least one headache this year. And about 5% will find themselves suffering from crippling chronic headaches. These are headaches that last 15 days in one month and occur over the course of at least three months. Falls Church chiropractor Dr. Shirine Hegazi, who created and runs Concept Chiropractic and Rehab, works with patients to eliminate their headaches quickly and naturally.
The Cause and Treatment
Falls Church Chiropractor Shirine Hegazi who uses a holistic approach to healing, which is gentle, drug- free and natural, is devoted to both relieving pain his patients’ pain and healing the cause of their pain. Migraine headaches can occur for numerous reasons. Some people’s headaches are caused by environmental factors or allergies, others may be the result of a physical injury from an auto accident or other mishap and still others are brought about by poor posture, diet and other factors.
Prior to treatment, a chiropractor will focus on first finding the cause of the pain. In treating a headache, they may end up focusing on the neck, shoulder or back. Often the pain that a patient is experiencing is a symptom of some other condition.
The basic gist of chiropractic treatments for those who get help in Falls Church, VA, or any part of the country, is to first relieve the stress in the area of the body that is causing the headache and in opening the natural healing channels that connect the brain to the rest of the body.
Patients often start to find relief after one visit, and after numerous treatments as a study at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, North Carolina has revealed, it is long lasting. The Duke report notes 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 headache than commonly prescribed medications.”
Also additional studies, including one published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, conclude that those with tension headaches who underwent chiropractic treatment still realized benefits four weeks after treatment had ended. The report also observed that this was not the case with drug therapy.
At the Falls Church practice of Dr. Shirine Hegazi, relief involves a physical examination, lifestyle evaluation and analysis of all factors including physical, situational and psychological. In order to offer a full cure, Concept Chiropractic and Rehab conducts a thorough analysis of each patient’s headache pain.
In this manner, they move towards providing a real solution that will be effective and ongoing.
Tension and stress headaches and migraines respond to chiropractic methods quickly. Those who are treated by a chiropractor find that they are quickly on their way to renewing their ability to enjoy life fully and thoroughly once again. Often they wonder why they didn’t seek a holistic approach earlier. The payoff for the patient is astoundingly rewarding.
