This condition is usually treated in 6 weeks with appropriate conservative treatments (80% improves in 6 weeks). On the other hand, if one waits several weeks before the beginning of the treatment, this one can be longer and the patient can preserve sequelae (persistent pain, recurrence, etc.).
WARNING ! If numbness or weakness in the arm becomes worse or incontinence problems occur, see your doctor immediately.
A headache can be temporary. It manifests itself because we are overworked or we have “celebrated” too much and it generally disappears as soon as we resume our normal activities. Often, a little rest or exercise in the open air is enough to chase away the pain. These headaches are not disturbing. On the other hand, very painful headaches that come up frequently must be taken seriously and treated with care.
The causes of headaches or migraines are numerous. They can be caused by dilated blood vessels, muscle spasms of the scalp, sinusitis, vision problems, hypertension, irritation or inflammation of the meninges (the brain envelope), irritation of nerves or an increase in the pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid in which the brain and spinal cord bathe.
Another major cause of headaches is neck trauma, which can lead to mechanical irritation of the nerve roots. Injuries in the neck area are not always due to falls, collisions or serious accidents. A trauma can develop because joints are constantly being asked for or they are unjustly. Athletes are subject to these traumas, as are construction workers. For their part, truckers or secretaries who have a bad posture may also have these problems. In fact, no one is safe from chronic headaches.
The pain experienced during headaches or migraines comes from the trigeminal nerve and the first three cervical nerve roots. When you have a headache, it is not the brain that is painful because the brain tissue is not sensitive.
The chiropractor can prevent or treat headaches related to the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. It will intervene effectively to treat the cause and not just the symptoms. He will use a natural method to restore mobility to the vertebrae and relieve muscle tension.
For whoever wants to avoid, as far as possible, drugs and surgery, chiropractic is a natural choice!
With the help of manipulations and favorable conditions, we can see a noticeable improvement in 14 days and a remission in 4 to 5 weeks. On the other hand, if one waits several weeks before the beginning of the treatment, this one can be longer and the patient can preserve sequelae (slight persistent pain, recurrence, weakness with the neck, etc.).
