Are you a headache sufferer? If so, have you tried chiropractic care? At Newcomb Chiropractic Clinic in Broken Arrow, OK, Dr. R. Brent Newcomb and Dr. Doug Newcomb provide relief for headaches of all kinds. You'll be impressed with their accurate and compassionate care.

Why do I get headaches?

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) says that 90 percent of American adults suffer from some type of headache. Some headaches originate in injury from sports or an accident; most, however, are what neurologists call primary headaches.

Primary headaches are the familiar migraine, cluster or tension headaches. All headaches span age and gender barriers. Stress and tight muscles in the neck, shoulder and back precipitate the discomfort in the majority of cases, states the ACA.

Your chiropractor can help

When you come to Newcomb Chiropractic Clinic in Broken Arrow, Dr. Newcomb will ask you about your headache symptoms, what triggers them, how long they last, and what may relieve the pain.

Also, he'll review your medical history and medications and do a chiropractic examination of your neck and spine. This exam reveals areas of tension and stress in muscles, ligaments and tendons in the neck, shoulders and back.

Additionally, it reveals subluxations or misalignments of the spinal vertebrae. Subluxations pinch nerves and harm soft tissues, leading to pain, limited range of motion and poor function of the neck, arms, legs, and more.

To relieve your headaches, Dr. Newcomb will perform the spinal adjustments you need to improve blood flow and nerve function up and down your spine. Spinal adjustments speed healing to injured areas of the body.

Also, he may advise some simple headache interventions, including:

  • A program of daily stretching exercises and relaxation techniques
  • Walking or other light to moderate aerobic exercise
  • Ways to improve your posture, or ergonomics, as you work
  • Adequate hydration
