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.

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
