Many people suffer through their day with aches and pains, taking pain killers to get them through the day. They often claim to be “too busy” or are “tough” and don’t need to see a doctor or Brisbane chiropractor. Unfortunately this “soldier on” mentality could actually be the demise of good health and quality of life. So, how do we know if we really should see a Brisbane chiropractor?
Headaches & Migraines
Headaches and migraines can appear for a number of reasons. Dehydration, stress, hormonal changes, spinals or neck problems, are some of the main causes of headaches and migraines. If you find yourself with a sudden headache or migraine, start by initially looking at what you have done that day or night previous. This can be things such as have you drank enough water? Have you missed your morning coffee or cigarette or had a bad nights sleep?
If symptoms persist after ruling out different dietary and routine related possible causes, it is a good idea to seek advice from your doctor. Ongoing symptoms can indicate links to an underlying problem such as a spinal related issue. Headaches, migraines, neck or back pain, are signs that it is time to call your Brisbane chiropractor.
Causes of neck pain are a little more refined than that of a headache or migraine. It is often due to strain, stress, sleeping positions, or vertebral subluxation. To find the root of your neck pain a chiropractor will be able to help you. At First Choice Chiropractic, our Brisbane chiropractors offer holistic specialist advice and treatment options for neck complaints. Simply call our team to make an appointment to talk to a specialist today.
On-going back pain is a symptom that should not be ignored. It can affect your quality of life and make the every day movements and activities difficult. Injuries, alignment issues, genetic conditions, everyday activities and lifestyle factors can all contribute to back pain. Holistic back and neck specialists, such as chiropractors, are experts that can help get to the root of your pain. They are able to work out the best treatment and prevention methods to suit your needs and ailment.
If you are experiencing on-going headaches, neck pain or back pain, it is time to seek expert help. Stop simply, “soldiering on” and get your quality of life back. Ignoring symptoms can lead to a domino-like effect with pain and ailments popping up in different areas of the body. This is often your body’s way of sounding the alarm. By ignoring warning signs or suppressing it with pain killers, it can often make the problem worse or take longer to heal.
