Headache Everyday? – The “Hidden Cause”

Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

HeadacheThe primary objective of chiropractic care is to find and reduce the underlying cause of your everyday headache. Headaches that come on everyday  are common, but they’re not normal.

Drug Culture
Pain relievers of various types are the most common approach to headaches. In our practice we take a more natural approach. Our objective is to find and reduce the underlying cause of the headache.

Hidden Cause
A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these subluxations affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

Our thorough examination detects subluxation patterns that could be causing your headaches. If subluxations are present, you’re likely to benefit from chiropractic care.

Compensation Reaction
Some are surprised to learn that their headaches are being caused by problems in their lower back! The upper spine compensates, shifting the head off center, causing headaches.

Frequently Asked Questions:

If the cause of your condition is related to the misalignment of one or more vertebra which is directly affecting the flow of nerve impulses to your body, you need to know that only specific chiropractic adjustments to gently move your spine into balance is going to fix the cause. Medications may change the symptoms you are experiencing, but drugs have serious side effects and do not address the cause of the symptom. Physical therapy in the case where spinal misalignments are the cause is a waste of money and time.

The diagnosis is simple. You either have misaligned vertebra or other boney components that are out of alignment or you don’t. A good analogy  is when your car’s wheels are out of alignment. The only fix is to realign your wheels.

Finding your problem:  Subluxations or misalignments for the benefits of laymens terms, are easy and painless to detect by a highly trained and experienced chiropractor. Call us today at 949 388-0800 and let us get you back to health.

Conditions & Symptoms

Physical therapy and muscle relaxers didn’t work for me

“Physical therapy and muscle relaxers didn’t work for me.  After my accident, the only real relief I got was from Dr. Chris.  He told me it would take time and it did.  But today I can say that for someone who had ongoing pain for over a year, his personalized treatments really changed my life.”

Massive heel pain

“Three years ago, I started playing tennis.  As time went on, I was playing 4 to 6 times a week, and loving it.

Then about six months ago, the heel on my left foot started hurting.  It only got worse where I could hardly walk on it.  I went to sport store, bought all kinds of sole inserts, heel cups, and I even went to the doctor.  Diagnosis was “plantar fasciitis,” treatment was exercises and pain pills.  It got a little better, but nothing you’d want to live with.

Finally, Dr. Hawn suggested that he test me to see if I was a candidate for Orthotics.  I didn’t jump on that right away, but my foot wasn’t getting better, so eventually I had to try orthotics. I went to the office, got sized and ordered them.

What a difference!!!! I don’t know why I waited so long.  I have “NO” pain in my foot while playing tennis.  The orthotics took the pressure off my heel.  My foot is so much better today because of the othotics……was worth every dollar.  Thank you Dr. Hawn.”

I am so pleased with the care I get from Dr. Hawn

“My name is Andrew Louch and I am so pleased with the care I get from Dr. Hawn that I wanted to join the many other people on his office wall and website giving a testimonial. They all have a great story and I wanted to share mine.

I’ve been going to Dr. Hawn for about a year and a half and it’s the best service and chiropractic technique/work I’ve ever received.  I first started going to chiropractors over 6 years ago. One of the things that make Dr. Hawn special to me is that he is always willing to come in, even in his off hours if I need to be seen.  I am a fireman and my work as well as play is very intense and strenuous on my body. When I don’t feel just right I know it and I know where to go.  The adjustments Dr. Hawn gives are gentle and focused and unlike any that I have ever received before. He seems to know and understand the body very well. I guess it is because of his experience and the fact that he went to the famous school he always talks about, Palmer College.

Dr. Chris Hawn is a very likeable guy and he will go the extra mile for you.  I feel great to have found Dr. Hawn after my last chiropractor retired. I thank my fellow firemen for referring me to him.  I highly recommend him and you too will find as I did, that he is great in the way he interacts with his patients.”
