Let's Clear the Air About Headaches

Let's Clear the Air About Headaches

April 19, 2018

If you're suffering from headaches, and you're a long term headache sufferer, you've been to every doctor and specialist without any true answers. You're in pain, and this is the time to come to Agilus. 

85% of headaches come from your neck. This is what we call "cervicogenic," and it comes from your neck and head posture. It also comes from your breathing.

So many of us have seen so many medical providers with the same effect: you get another pill, another medicine, and you still have pain. If you have chronic headaches, and you have never seen anybody about them, Agilus may be a good place to start. As physical therapists, we are going to evaluate your musculoskeletal system and evaluate your posture.  

If indeed you need something other than our medical intervention, we can assist you in finding the right medical provider. WE can help you get through the medical maze to find the care you need to get you back to a normal life.

Let's clear the air about some of the medications we have to take for pain and headaches. Medicines are only designed to be used in the short term. Anti-inflammatories will stop the natural healing process. Once we get past that first step of inflammation for the healing process, we go through the additional steps needed to remodel the cells. 

Sometimes we take medicines and they rob our body of much-needed vitamins and nutrients. Sometimes taking a certain medication for a long-term solution causes the same symptoms you are taking the medicine for in the first place. It’s a vicious cycle. Medicine is not always the answer.

If you have been taking medication, and you aren’t seeing the results you need, call us at Agilus, and let’s help you through this process naturally.
