Dr. Ullom is using research based Chiropractic to Help Stop Headaches, Without the Use of Pain Killers.
“Many of my patients felt like there was no hope for them,” says Dr. Ullom. “There is a large segment of our population who suffer silently with headache pain almost every day. They often turn to pain killers to temporarily stop the pain. But drugs only provide short term relief, it doesn’t fix the underlying problem at hand. We use evidence based chiropractic to fix the source of the migraines and we are having excellent results.”
According to the American Chiropractic Association, nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Dr. Mathew Ullom, a local Fort Collins Chiropractor, is using chiropractic to successfully stop migraine headaches in hundreds of patients who previously had little help from traditional medicine.
“There is a large segment of our population who suffer silently with headache pain almost every day. They often turn to pain killers to temporarily stop the pain. But drugs only provide short term relief, it doesn’t fix the core 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?
Research shows that spinal manipulation – the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic – is 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 headaches than a commonly prescribed medication.
Dr. Ullom says that in recent years the medical community has embraced chiropractic because it offers treatment without the use of drugs or surgery. “In treating headache pain, most experts agree that conservative care should be tried before more invasive treatments are considered. That’s what chiropractic offers. It has a long history of effectively stopping pain yet doesn’t require the use of prescription or over the counter painkillers that can have negative consequences. Chiropractic is all-natural and frequently is more affordable than other options. We say why suffer when you don’t have to? We invite people to come on down and explore if chiropractic might work for them.”
