Headaches

   
 
The throbbing...pounding...sensation of splitting headaches are an all too accepted condition for millions of people everyday.  Some suffer from headaches several times a month, others even more frequently.  A headache can be a distraction that affects your job and your family life.  Headaches are not a normal condition. 

Many people resort to medication to temporarily dull the pain.  Unfortunately, relief is often fleeting and the cycle returns again and again.  It seems no matter how many pills are taken, if the cause of the problem is not identified and treated, the headaches will continue.
Although many things can cause headaches; including sinus trouble and alcohol use, the most common cause is muscle tension.  The brain itself does not register the ache of the headache, but there are nerves, veins and arteries that are wrapped around the head.  If these cranial nerves are compressed, pulled irritated, a headache can be the result.  Help is often possible through Chiropractic!

Mood Swings
   
 
Mood swings can cause a normal, reasonable person to become irritable and difficult to be around.  while this can be a problem for others, it pales in comparison to the instability the person feels.  No one wants to be unpredictable, but for many, it's a way of life.
There are many suspected causes of mood swings; including diet, use of some medications or unbalanced body functions and structures.  Although changes in diet or medication may help some, others are often left gasping at solutions that never seen to materialize.  The standard approach for many has been that of medication.  Sometimes a chemical solution to mood swings can have a negative effect.
The medications can be as problematic as the condition itself, even if it works some of the time.  There are some doctors who have been successful at leveling the drastic nature of mood swings in a completely natural way.  What a thought; no mood swings and a natural solution to a new lease on life!

Pain

   
 
Pain is your body's way of telling your that something is wrong.  It's a warning signal.  Each and everyday millions of people experience pain at some point in their day, some even start and end their day in pain. 

There are two types of pain:

1.  Acute Pain-  Is new to the body and can be caused by a sprain, bruise, cut, broken bone etc. This pain can be mild or severe.
2.  Chronic Pain- This pain is different because it reoccurs and persists and might be accompanied by insomnia, exhaustion, even weight change and can last for six months or more. 
Whatever the type of pain, some people look to painkillers to alleviate the symptoms, on the surface this seems like the right thing to do, after all no one wants to live with pain.  Quite often painkillers will mask the cause of the problem by reducing the amount of pain temporarily.  Doesn’t it make more sense to find the true cause of the pain and treat it directly?  Of course it would.  Chiropractic care can be your answer to a better life!

Sleep Disturbances

   
 
Getting a restful night of sleep is an absolute requirement.  It is not an option.  Your body must sleep and replenish itself for you to operate at an optimal level.  For many people, a good nights sleep is something they only daydream about because night after night, they do not get the rest their body needs.  You wake every morning feeling like you were up all night, well maybe you were.  Even though you were sleeping all through the night you may be experiencing sleep disturbances.  There are over 70 different types of sleep disorders and are all categorized in three areas lack of sleep, disturbed sleep, and excessive sleep.  Sleep disturbances occur throughout the night without you even knowing it, this can be caused by many different problems. 

There are 5 Stages in your sleep that your body must go through to achieve a good night sleep.  This cycles over and over throughout the night.

Stage 1 – Light sleep and relaxation of the muscles. (you can wake up)
Stage 2 – Activity in the brain slows and eye movement stops.
Stage 3 – Brain waves become slow (delta waves) and small quick waves occur.
Stage 4 – Brain waves are all delta wave.
Stage 5 – (REM) Rapid Eye Movement – dreams occur.

This usually takes about an hour and a half to complete one cycle.

There are many different types of sleep disorders:  night pains, daytime dozing, insomnia, sleep apnea and daytime fatigue to mention a few.  Whatever the problem is, it cannot be ignored.  You must sleep for your body to recover or you will suffer many side effects.
Some people resort to sleeping pills or other non natural methods to induce sleep.  Quite often these are only a temporary fix to a deeper problem.  Getting to bed on a regular schedule, avoiding alcohol and caffeine and sleeping in a comfortable position can all be helpful, but sometimes they are not enough.  By bringing your body into balance, the harmony of nature can often lead itself to provide what you need...a restful night of sleep!
