Alleviation of Chronic Headaches by Correcting Lateral Head Translation Posture Using Chiropractic Care

Alleviation of Chronic Headaches by Correcting Lateral Head Translation Posture Using Chiropractic CareIn this issue we are going to present a study about chiropractic care and headache alleviation, but first let us go through some general information about headache and why you get it.

What is Headache?

Every year, more than 250 million work days are lost due to headaches. Headaches are one of the most common reasons for visiting the doctor.

Did You Know That the Brain Itself Cannot Feel Pain?

The reason why headaches are painful is because of the surrounding tissues, brain chemicals, blood vessels, and nerves that produce those pain signals.

There are many types and causes of headaches…. Muscle tension headache and migraines are by far the most common types of headaches. Sinus infections and other issues, such as high blood pressure, can also lead to headaches.

What Causes Headaches?

Headaches occur for a reason. A headache is your body’s way of signaling that something is not right. Nerve irritation is the leading cause of headaches for many sufferers.

Headache is very common in patients with chiropractic problems. Headaches can arise when the spinal bones in the neck are not supporting your head properly, which the results from the study below will prove. This can affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

Abstract of Study

To present a case of the alleviation of chronic headaches and neck pain following restoration of anterior to posterior symmetry to the cervico-thoracic spine, posture and subluxation using chiropractic & berry translation traction.

Clinical Features

A 55-year old female patient presented with chronic headaches, as well as neck and shoulder pain. Examination and radiography revealed forward head posture and lateral head translation posture consistent with vertebral subluxation.

After 36 Visits, Over a Period of 12 Weeks, the Patient Reported Complete Resolution of Headaches

Hay Fever? No More!

Hay Fever? No More!

Hay Fever? No More! by Nachmias ChiropracticAre you one of them suffering from seasonal allergies, or generally speaking, hay fever? If so, you should definitely continue reading this article.

In this issue we will inform you on how you can get allergy relief fast and sufficient.

Seasonal allergies affect more than 35 million Americans and cost the U.S. economy more than $7 billion in lost productivity.

For allergy sufferers the costs very quickly add up. Doctor visits, prescription medications, and possible time missed from work will cost a lot in the long run.

Why Do Some People Get Allergy Symptoms?

Allergies are the result of an exaggerated response by the immune system to substances it recognizes as foreign. The body becomes hypersensitive to pollen and other environmental substances.

In an allergic person, the immune system produces a specific antibody known as immunoglobulin E (IgE) in response to pollen, pet dander, foods, dust, and other matters, which then produces an allergic reaction.

Allergic reactions can consist of a number of irritating symptoms that can easily make life miserable. The symptoms can include sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itchy throat or inside of ears, hives, swollen eyelids, and itchy eyes.

Common Allergens

For starters, ragweed is a weed that can grow almost anywhere, but especially in the east and Midwest of the United States.

Other weeds that can cause allergies are; goldenrod, curly dock, lamb’s quarters, pigweed, sheep sorrel, and sagebrush.

Outdoor molds are also a cause of allergies. Especially around the spring period and they thrive until the first frost. They are common in soil, compost piles, and in the leaves that cover the ground during the fall.

Now, to the important question…

How to Relieve Allergy Symptoms?

The strength of both the immune and respiratory systems depends largely on proper communication between the brain and spinal cord to control and coordinate their functions properly.

When there are interruptions in this communication, such as misalignments (blockages) of the spine, immunity may be compromised. This upper cervical joint irritation can exaggerate or even produce allergic and asthmatic symptoms.

Through manipulation of the joints and soft tissue – either through traditional chiropractic adjustment or spinal decompression – your chiropractor can help restore alignment, and open the necessary pathways of communication between the brain and spine.

In addition to promoting a stronger immune system, adjustments may also help regulate the rush of histamine and amount of cortisol produced during high allergy season. The majority of allergies involve the release of an inflammatory producing substance, so called histamine. Adequate production of cortisol (an anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the adrenal gland) is necessary to combat this.

Many Allergy Sufferers Are Found To Have Weak Adrenal Gland Function

What needs to be understood is that the adrenal gland is fed directly by the T9 spinal level nerve root, meaning once again, that spinal misalignments can greatly impact allergic reactions (source: &

How Do You Know What Chiropractor to Choose for Allergy Relief?

Chiropractic Is the Key to Well-Being

Chiropractic Is the Key to Well-Being

Chiropractic Is the Key to Well-Being by Nachmias ChiropracticThe fundamentals of chiropractic care are to help the body heal itself naturally, without undergoing risky surgery, or having to take dangerous drugs with unpleasant side effects in order to deal with pain symptoms or illness.

If you want to bring your health up a notch and experience optimal well-being – in other words; feeling as good as you deserve – you should try a chiropractic treatment by
Dr. Adam Nachmias –
Nachmias Chiropractic.

How do we dare to make this statement? Let us explain below.

Why Is Chiropractic the Key to Health?

Finding a good chiropractor is not only the key to correcting damage caused by years of poor posture, or trauma to the body, it is also important for everyone who wants to take a proactive approach to his or her health care.

Our Health and Well-Being Depend On the Functioning Of the Nervous System

If you have a healthy nervous system that is able to flow freely in the body – free of blockages (what chiropractors call subluxations) – you can fight diseases and injuries.

The nervous system controls and organizes your growth and health. The nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of your body. In other words, the nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system in your body.

With a healthy nervous system, you feel energetic, happy, flexible in your joints, strong, and pain-free. An ultimate state to be in that improves overall performance, and social welfare.

If you are happy and healthy – meaning; experiencing optimal well-being – you can take on the world’s troubles and find solutions, rather than getting stuck in despair.

Depression and stress are common symptoms that chiropractors treat. In many cases, chiropractic manipulations help the body to heal itself, since the nervous system gets restored and help the serotonin levels back to normal.

Chiropractic Adjustments Give the
Immune System a Boost

Chiropractic adjustments will also improve the immune system. Spinal manipulations make it possible for the immune system to function on its optimal performance, ensuring that you are staying healthy and pain-free.

Feeling good, staying healthy, and doing the things that we love are what keep us looking forward to each new day.

To receive regular chiropractic adjustments increase the quality of life, health and well-being.
Dr. Adam Nachmias can make sure that you, never again, have to wake up with aching pain that keeps your from living life to the fullest.

Dr. Adam Nachmias is an expert, licensed, and well awarded chiropractor with 26 years experience of chiropractic care. He got awarded 2016’s Best Chiropractor in New York for the 2nd year in a row by and
