Back Problems - Headaches and Migraines
"What CHIROPRACTORS have known intuitively for years because of their understanding of Biomechanics can now be OBJECTIVELY demonstrated. UNFORTUNATELY, the MEDICAL profession is so ignorant of Biomechanics that it will be a major task to educate them!"*
Dr. Albrecht is a member of The International Cervicogenic Headache Society founded by NEUROLOGISTS, who recognize that through current research, literature and clinical experience that Chiropractors have been correct in defining many headaches as having their origin in the neck (cervical spine).
Chiropractic and Headaches
In comparison, approximately 16,685 Americans die per year with AIDS! Where is the public outcry on this issue? Chiropractic care for headaches is SAFE. Research in the last several years indicate strong evidence for Chiropractic care in Cervicogenic Headaches as SAFE and EFFECTIVE compared to standard Medical care.
The DUKE UNIVERSITY study (Feb. 2001) also supports Chiropractic as the choice for neck caused Headache treatment. The implications are that chiropractic is not actually a therapy or treatment, but rather gets to the cause allowing the body to effect a correction that lasts beyond actual care. Comparable drugs studied had 82% adverse side affects without correction.
