Headaches & Migraines

Headaches & MigrainesHeadaches

I am shocked by the number of people I see every week who have been suffering from headaches for many years. Many of them take aspirin or stronger medications in order to be able to function on a daily basis. Not only is the consumption of these medications damaging to the body (especially the liver, kidneys and stomach), headaches can be treated naturally in most cases without dangerous chemicals.  Neck problems are the source of most of the headaches that I have treated in my office. When we feel too much stress in life, our spinal muscles contract, shorten abnormally, and pull the vertebrae in our neck out of alignment. The spinal nerves that branch out from the neck and travel up to the head get trapped or “pinched” by the vertebrae. The nerves become inflamed and the pain travels along the path of the nerve to the head.

Dehydration is unfortunately very common in Israel. Our brain is comprised of 80% water, and just like your stomach it “growls” when it is hungry. When your brain is dehydrated it will give you a dry mouth – if you ignore this signal and don’t drink water, the tissues surrounding the brain will contract and apply pressure. Pain fibers will fire up and you will get a headache. Most people are chronically dehydrated and can get better by simply drinking more water.

Treatment of Headaches

By means of a thorough examination of your spine, I can determine the source of the headache. The problem can usually be treated gently without the use of traditional spinal manipulation or “cracking” of the neck. In addition, Cold Laser Therapy, Vibrational Sound Healing, and specific neck strengthening exercises will be part of your treatment program.

Only YOU can solve a dehydration problem by drinking more water on a regular basis.
