The Truth: Chiropractic and Headaches – Headache Doctor Forest Lake

Posted on Jun 30, 2016


If you aren’t suffering with headaches, chances are you know people who do. They’re so common these days. Perhaps it’s because many people sit at desk jobs in the same position for hours on end? They rarely move their head, neck and shoulders while typing away at a keyboard. Meanwhile, their eyes are constantly looking at a bright screen filled with data… and small fonts.

While medications do help relieve the pain associated with headaches, what are they doing for removing the cause altogether? Dr. Gerard of Lakewoods Chiropractic has helped many headache sufferers find natural relief from recurring pain.

So who goes to see a headache doctor in Forest Lake, MN? Generally, people with tension headaches, migraines, and “cervicogenic” headaches, which involve the head and neck.

No matter what kind of headache, one thing’s for sure: they all hurt. There’s the throbbing, seemingly relentless pain that doesn’t want to go away– what are you supposed to do about it?

Having you considered seeing a headache doctor in Forest Lake, MN, like Dr. Gerard? He is trained in the art and science of using manual manipulation on the body to alleviate subluxations (dislocations) of bones, muscles, and tissues. His hands can help ease the tension and contraction of muscles in your shoulders, neck and head areas, such that the headaches no longer bother you. Chiropractic care is meant to help relieve your skeleton from uneven stresses, to correct your posture, and facilitate better movements so the headache pain goes away.

While the cause of migraines isn’t known, researchers have found that they come from a sudden dilation of the blood vessels of the head. Involving both the nervous and vascular systems, migraines tend to be severe, forcing people to give up their normal, daily activities. It’s not unusual for a person with a migraine to call in sick to work, simply because the pain is so awful.

Dr. Gerard, your headache doctor in Forest Lake, MN, can make spinal and neck adjustments to reduce irritation of the nervous system and improve vascular flow. Stopping the chronic migraine cycle is possible.

Rather than rely on pills, headache sufferers should make an appointment with Dr. Gerard by calling Lakewoods Chiropractic at 651-464-0800.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
