Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 11, 2012
According to the American Chiropractic Association, nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Dr. Mark Harris, a local Dallas, TX chiropractor, is using chiropractic to successfully reduce migraine headaches in hundreds of female patients who previously had suffered throughout their life with migraine pain.
"Many of my patients felt like there was no hope for them,” says Dr. Harris. "There is a large segment of our population who suffer silently with headache pain almost every day. They turn to painkillers to temporarily stop the pain. But drugs only provide short-term relief. It doesn’t fix the problem at hand. We are using chiropractic to fix the source of the migraines and we are having excellent results."
Is there evidence that chiropractic can stop headache pain? New research shows that spinal manipulation - the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic - may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.
A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.
Dr. Harris says, "In treating headache pain, most experts agree that conservative care should be tried before more invasive treatments are considered. That's what chiropractic offers.”
Dr. Harris offers new patients a complimentary consultation. Dr. Mark Harris, D.C. is located at 17610 Midway Rd., Suite 124 Dallas, TX. Telephone: (972) 380-6977.
