Headaches

The primary objective of chiropractic care is find and reduce the underlying cause of your headache.

Headaches are common, but they’re not normal.

Drug Culture

Pain relievers of various types are the most common approach to headaches. In our practice we take a more natural approach. Our objective is to find and reduce the underlying cause of a headache.

Hidden Cause

A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these vertebral subluxations affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

Our thorough examination detects vertebral subluxation patterns that could be causing your headaches. If vertebral subluxations are present, you’re likely to benefit from chiropractic care.

Compensation Reaction

Some are surprised to learn that their headaches are being caused by problems in their lower back! The upper spine compensates, shifting the head off center, causing headaches.

While we can’t guarantee results, we have a high success rate with practice members who get headaches. Give us a call. Let’s sit down and discuss your unique situation.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Is the spine the source of all headaches?

Not necessarily. The three most common causes are physical trauma, emotional stress or chemical toxins. Sometimes there may be a combination of factors. Our examination process helps identify the most likely cause(s).

  • What causes subluxations?

There are three basic causes of subluxations. Physical causes could include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions, and improper lifting. Emotions, such as stress, anger and fear can be the cause of subluxations. Chemical causes could include alcohol, drugs, preservatives, pollution and poor diet.

  • I was told it was “all in my head.” Now what?

The pain you feel is real. And psychological sources of pain are common. However, this “diagnosis” is often the last resort of health practitioners who have exhausted their possible explanations of the cause of your problem. In these cases, we’ve often found that undetected subluxations are likely culprits.

  • How many visits will it take?

Some practice members enjoy results quickly. Others notice a slow decline in their symptoms after several weeks or longer of chiropractic care. It’s impossible to predict. If you’ve had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time. We monitor your progress and modify our recommendations as needed.

  • What if chiropractic care doesn’t help?

If we’re unable to find and correct the cause of your particular health problem, we will refer to other experts who may be able to help. Your health and your satisfaction are our only goal.

  • How come my medical doctor didn’t suggest chiropractic?

That’s changing. Years of prejudice and bias are giving way to research showing the benefits of chiropractic care. Attitudes are slow to change. However, as the public demands alternatives to drugs and surgery, more and more medical practitioners are referring to chiropractors.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We have been seeing Dr. Stein for a year and we went from our four-year old having multiple ear infections and on the road to ear tube surgery to only having one ear infection this entire past year!! We have also noticed stronger immune systems!! I am excited to see how adjustments will benefit my other three children (10, 8, and 2) who just began their treatment plans, as my oldest already feels like he can focus better in school. Also, the whole staff at Straightahead is very fun and loving!!"

  • "Dr Stein and his staff are nothing short of amazing. My kids are so comfortable there, they actually hate when it’s time to leave, and ask when they get to go back. Most importantly, their health is improving, and the issues that led me to Dr Stein in the first place are already improving. Straightahead was an answer to prayer for us, and I’m so grateful to everyone there for how much they love and care about my family."

  • "I can not say enough about how Dr. Stein and his amazing staff has changed our families lives. He has helped my husband, myself, and our son with different issues and has helped us tremendously. Most recently he is helping my sister, and I’m thrilled for her to be in his care."
