Headaches

Your migraine could be a clue to more serious spinal or postural problems.

What is Causing Your Headaches or Migraines?

Identify the root cause of your pain with Dr. Gene Fish.
Common Causes

Headaches or migraines can be extremely debilitating and can make it difficult to concentrate, work, or focus. Did you know that the misalignment of your neck or spine can cause painful headaches? This is because your nervous system resides in your spine and thus can cause severe headaches. Another cause of headaches, unrelated to chiropractic care, is dehydration. If you are not taking in enough fluids then your body will struggle to function and thus headaches can occur.

Our Modern World

In the past decade or so, more and more patients are experiencing headaches resulting from bad posture. The main culprit is the amount of time spent using modern technology such as computers, smartphones, and watching TV. Many people suffer when using these devices due to poor posture, which misaligns their neck and thus causes headaches.

Local doctors treat most headaches and migraines with medication but these could be the sign of a more serious problem.

I've been going to Genesis Chiropractic Clinic for well over a year by now. When I started, I had major migraines and headaches that lasted for months on end and a horribly stiff neck. I hadn't seen a chiropractor for over three years and it was good I started back up again when I did. Since I've been going I've gained more strength, I rarely have a headache or a migraine and my body feels great. The PT is very specific to my needs, the receptionists are kind (have a great sense of humor) and they truly care about their customers. So, I would 100% recommend them to anyone I know.

My name is Joyce McDuffy-Starks and I’m from Philadelphia. I’m disabled. It takes me approx. an hour depending on traffic to arrive to the office. I think it is very, very worth it me taking the time. When I first came to see Dr. Fish, my condition consisted of constant pain in my lower back, upper back, and across my shoulders and neck. And I also had headaches a lot too. I also was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which I did not know what it was exactly, I just know it caused a lot of pain. So I can say now that a lot of the pain has subsided. It’s doing a much better. And I’ve gone to see a lot of doctors about fibromyalgia. My primary doctor said he didn’t know what to do. So they would give me pain medicine to subside, but that wouldn’t always work either. I didn’t have any fears about going to the chiropractor. I’ve worked in the nursing profession my whole life. I just didn’t know about anyone doing anything for fibromyalgia. My primary doctor, and the pain management doctors, they would tell me to soak in the tub do exercises and give me pain medicines and muscle-relaxers. I have improved greatly. It’s not as much pain. I can get up and move around more freely and if I do have an episode it is not as severe as before I came to see Dr. Fish. I view chiropractic care as a lifetime fix. It will be something that I will not be afraid to try and recommend, as a matter of fact I’m talking to my mom, my dad and my son, since we have similar problems with our body problems. I would encourage others to come to see Dr. Fish because a lot of people don’t know about chiropractic. For the unknown it frightens people, they are not as with the more contemporary doctor. But I can say it’s worth the trip. It’s worth seeing him.

Eliminate Headaches At the Source

Corrective chiropractic care in Horsham provides long-lasting reprieve from head pain.

Lifestyle Changes

It is the norm for doctors to recommend medication or bed rest when you report experiencing headaches. Although these may provide temporary relief, adopting new postural habits could eliminate the pain long-term. Having an improper posture can cause neck and spinal misalignment, which directly causes headaches. Speak to Dr. Gene Fish to discover the ideal posture for working on a computer, driving, or using your smartphone. These slight changes can yield big results and allow you to enjoy life without a throbbing headache.

Spinal Alignment

Headaches and migraines can be a result of a misaligned neck or spinal curve. These abnormal curves can place pressure on your nervous system and cause head pain. Dr. Fish can provide almost instant headache relief through spinal alignment, traction techniques, and postural adjustments. Realigning your body creates a balance in the nervous system and can improve your health without the need for any medication. Our aim is to provide lasting healthcare using advanced Chiropractic BioPhysics, so you can enjoy your life once again.

Hydration

You may have heard it said that “water is the source of life” and that can feel true when you see the power of this clear fluid. Dehydration is one of the leading causes of headaches. The good news is it can be easily fixed by simply increasing your daily water intake. In fact, health organizations recommend an average water consumption of 2 litres – 3.5 liters a day.
