Tallahassee Chiropractor Dr. Dennis G. Fiorini Says that Headaches Are Literally a Pain in the Neck!

Posted in Articles tagged , , , at 5:40 pm by dennisfiorini

A recent study confirmed that the cause of most headaches directly correlates to conditions of the neck.  The science behind this study puts emphasis on the relationship between the neck bones and the central nervous system.  Alignment and movement of the neck bones proves to be critical for the health of the brain and the circulation of spinal fluid and blood.

Ground braking research revolutionizes the way headaches are viewed by the medical community.  World renowned researcher Dr. Nikoli Bogduk found all headaches shared a relationship with the upper neck!  Bogduk noted that every single headache directly correlated to abnormal cervical (neck ) spine nerve function.  Bogduk conducted his research over several years and published a number of studies proving the connection.  Most of the medical community continues to only treat headaches with the drug therapy model which relives symptoms but never fully addresses the cause of headaches.

Recent research reveals the importance of spinal health for headache sufferers and proves the connection between chiropractic and headache relief.  Millions of headache sufferers experience relief and often permanent correction for their headaches through upper cervical adjustments.  Millions more continue to suffer due to their belief that relief only exists in the form of pharmaceutical drugs that can mask pain but don’t address the underlying cause of the headache.  The result of course is the return of the headache time and time again.

Upper cervical chiropractic care influences many different types of headaches due to the relationship between the neck bones, the flow of spinal fluid around the brain and the flow of blood to the brain.  Tension headaches, migraines, cluster headaches and sinus pain make up the four most common forms of headache.

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache.  These headaches may present as a “hat band” distribution of pain around the head.  This pain can be accompanied by a dull ache or pressure.  Tension headaches may cause mild-moderate pain on both sides of the head and are usually triggered by high stress, neck strain, hunger, depression, anxiety or lack of sleep.

Migraines debilitate millions of Americans.  Women are more commonly suffer with these types of headaches than do men.  The pain can last as long as five days and the pain limits the sufferers ability to perform normal activities of daily living.  Migraine headaches present as a throbbing pain on one side of the head.  Sometimes over one eye or behind the eyes.  These patients are very often sensitive to light and sound.  Severe cases can have nausea and vomiting.

Cluster headaches are more common in men.  These headaches manifest as severe burning and piercing behind one eye or on one side of the face.  Sometimes flushing and sweating occur on the affected side.  Cluster headaches occur in a series lasting from 15 minutes to 3 hours each.  Most sufferers experience one to four headaches a day, usually around the same time every day!  The cluster name refers to when one headache resolves it is replaced by a new on shortly after.

Sinus and allergy headaches comprise a very common category of headache situation.  Sinus headaches often occur as a result of an allergic reaction to pollen, molds, etc.  Obviously the pain caused by sinus problems is most often in the front of the face over the sinus areas.

Upper cervical chiropractic care provides a drugless means of relief from all of these different forms of headaches by improving the connection between the upper part of the neck and the central nervous system!  The origins of headaches come in a variety of forms.  The body functions much better and heals better when the brain and the spinal cord function at their optimal capacity.  People who suffer with headaches deserve to know that there are alternative treatments for relief without the use of side-effecting drugs which trap them in a cycle of pain and pharmaceutical pain management.  Call us and schedule and appointment if you or a loved one are suffering from this debilitating condition.

The Natural Way To Approach Your Migraine Headache from a Chiropractor in Tallahassee

Posted in Articles tagged , , , , , , at 3:24 am by dennisfiorini

If you frequently suffer from debilitating migraine headache, but don’t meet all the published criteria for migraines, you may just try to ignore them. Deep in your heart, you know something is wrong, but don’t want to face the fear of a lifetime of chronic pain. The great news is that there is a natural way to heal your pain without drugs or invasive procedures, and you don’t have to do this alone. Seeking out chiropractic help with a chiropractic who understands migraine pain is a great place to start your road to recovery.

What Is a Migraine Headache?

There are different symptoms leading up to or following a migraine attack. During an attack, you can experience pain from four hours to three days, unless you seek care. The frequency varies from person to person, with some people getting migraines rarely and others suffering several attacks each month. Symptoms include pain on one or both sides of your head, sensitivity to light and sound, throbbing pain and nausea. Other symptoms may include blurred visions and some people become lightheaded and may even faint.

How Can my Tallahassee Chiropractor Help?

This technique, designed to reduce or prevent a migraine headache attack, involves moving and stretching your head and neck as well as other parts of the body. One of the hallmarks of chiropractic care is the manipulation of your spine. Like aligning the wheels of a vehicle, aligning your spine puts your whole body back on track.

Chiropractic care is an alternative to drugs or surgery. It might include X-rays and other tests that provide insight into the health of your spine and how it can be impacting your overall well-being.

Chiropractors may use unconventional tools, such a straps, braces and other instruments to analyze and adjust your backbone. They can suggest lifestyle changes such as better nutrition, stress reduction and regular exercise. All these preventive measures may reduce the frequency or strength of future migraine attacks.

Auto Accident Relief Without Drugs with a Chiropractor in Tallahassee

Posted in Articles tagged , , , , at 3:20 am by dennisfiorini

Driving a car is a practical daily necessity for many people. While driving a car is typically a very safe experience, many people will get into an auto accident at some point. In some situations, this can leave someone dealing with a significant amount of back or neck pain afterwards. In these situations, it is very common for someone to be prescribed pain relief medication. While this may help to alleviate the pain temporarily, pain medication can be very addictive and should be avoided. A better option for many people would be to visit a chiropractor for auto accident relief from pain.

Consultation and Assessment

When you meet with a chiropractor, the first thing the chiropractor will do is determine why exactly you are experiencing your pain. I will complete a full evaluation of your back, neck, shoulders and spine to see if there is a misalignment or other type of trauma. Once this has been done, they will be able to better assess and provide you with a treatment plan.

Treat the Pain

Auto accident pain relief from a chiropractor can be treated a number of different ways. One of the first ways that this can be done is through a massage.  A chiropractor may use a massage to loosen up your muscles and joints, which will then allow them to heal properly.  In other situations the treatment could require that they work to re-position your spine.  This will help to improve blood flow and reduce the prevalence of pinched nerves.  This should then lead to an overall reduction in back or neck pain.

Ongoing Support

Depending on the severity of the auto accident and your injuries, you may need additional ongoing support from the chiropractor going forward. In these situations, the chiropractor will work with you to continue to rebuild the strength of the injured area. They will be able to do this by not only providing you with ongoing pain relief but also by providing you but physical therapy exercises that can be completed either at the office or at home.

How Chiropractic Care Can Provide Auto Accident Relief with a Chiropractor in Tallahassee

Posted in Articles tagged , , at 4:50 am by dennisfiorini

Auto accidents often leave devastating injuries in their wake. Even a minor accident can leave you with lingering pain in your shoulders, back or neck because the forces generated during the collision cause your body to be jerked into unnatural positions.

Sadly, it is not uncommon for a car accident to leave you with pain that lasts for months or even years. While you cannot turn back the clock, you can look forward to a better future by understanding how chiropractic services can help you find auto accident relief.

It is also important to seek care for your injuries as soon as possible after a car accident. This is because injuries respond better when you take action right away to stop them from getting worse. For example, you could exacerbate your pain by trying to continue to work or engage in your favorite recreational activities. Simply ignoring pain does not make it go away.

It is also possible to have an injury that does not bother you right away such as your spine being out of alignment. However, this minor injury can quickly escalate into a larger one if forces are placed on a part of your body that is already weak.

A chiropractor will look for every possible injury that you might have sustained during an accident. This gives you confidence that every injury that you have is receiving the proper care. In some cases, you may have what is called referred pain from an injury that makes it hard to locate the true source. For instance, an injury in your neck can cause pain to travel through the nerves and into your arm. Alternatively, a lower back injury can impact your legs.

Never assume that you know why you have pain after an auto accident because there are many different ways in which the muscles, ligaments and bones in your back interact. Instead, seek care for a chiropractor who understands how to assess your current physical condition and lifestyle to help you find the best options for alleviating pain after an accident.
