Headaches are common, but they’re not normal.

Drug Culture

Pain relievers of various types are the most common approach to headaches. In our practice we take a more natural approach. Our objective is to find and reduce the underlying cause of a headache.

Hidden Cause

A common cause of headaches is from the neck from being out of balance. i.e. bones being out of alignment, or muscles being too tight. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head, or the sore spots in your muscles. But these imbalances affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

Our thorough examination detects abnormal patterns that could be causing your headaches. Dr. Keeler is an expert at reducing muscle tension and gently restoring spinal alignment. His thorough treatment and self-care recommendations ensure that you’re likely to benefit from his chiropractic care.

Compensation Reaction

Some are surprised to learn that their headaches are being caused by problems in other parts of their back! The upper spine compensates, shifting the head off center, causing headaches.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is the spine the source of all headaches?

Not necessarily. The three most common causes are physical trauma, emotional stress or chemical toxins. Sometimes there may be a combination of factors. Our examination process helps identify the most likely cause(s).

What causes spinal imbalance?

There are three basic causes. Physical causes could include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions, poor postures and improper lifting. Emotions, such as stress, anger and fear can be the cause of spinal imbalance. Chemical causes could include alcohol, drugs, preservatives, pollution and poor diet.

I was told it was all in my head. Now what?

The pain you feel is real. And psychological sources of pain are common. However, this “diagnosis” is often the last resort of health practitioners who have exhausted their possible explanations of the cause of your problem. In these cases, we’ve often found that undetected spinal imbalances are likely culprits.

How many visits will it take?

Some patients enjoy results quickly. Others notice a slow decline in their symptoms after several weeks or longer of chiropractic care. It’s impossible to predict. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time. We monitor your progress and modify our recommendations as needed.

What if chiropractic care doesn’t help?

If we’re unable to find and correct the cause of your particular health problem, we will refer to other experts who may be able to help. Your health and your satisfaction are our only goal.

How come my medical doctor didn’t suggest chiropractic?

That’s changing. Years of prejudice and bias are giving way to research showing the benefits of chiropractic care. Attitudes are slow to change. However, as the public demands alternatives to drugs and surgery, more and more medical practitioners are referring to chiropractors.
