Goodyear Chiropractor Offers New Chronic Headache Relief Treatment

For many people, current headache treatments are ineffective in treating symptoms and can lose efficacy over time. Most people try to alleviate their headaches using over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, resting in a dark room, hot or cold compresses, massages, or even small amounts of caffeine. However, many of these offer limited relief, or worse yet, none at all. Thats why Estrella Parkway Medical Center has taken headache relief to the next level, by offering an FDA-approved treatment program. This new treatment, called the MiRix Protocol , is designed to help those who suffer from constant and/or severe headaches. The remedy works by applying a small dose of nasal spray, which effectively blocks a bundles of nerves that can cause headache pain. Previously, to treat this nerve bundle called Sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG), it took a combination of cue tips and x-rays to locate the regions that were causing the headaches, and then an injection of lidocaine. Now, using the MiRx protocol, it typically takes less than 60 seconds to get instant relief, with a nasal spray that focuses on the same area, but is less invasive. This new and unique treatment plan is given over a 4 to 6 week period which includes both medical procedures and integrated physical therapy. This headache relief solution can even effectively treat most of the common headache conditions, like tension headaches, cluster headaches, atypical face pain, trigeminal neuralgia, and even migraine headaches, with or without AURA . Most people will be happy to hear that the key benefits of the MiRx protocol include quick treatment administration, little-to-no discomfort, and near-instant headache relief. The therapy is even safe for pregnant women and is covered by most major medical insurance and Medicare providers. So why go to a chiropractor to treat headaches?

How a Skeptic Became a Chiropractor

However the pain would come roaring back when I got home. At this point my freshman year was almost over and the orthopedist prescribe vicodin and told me if the pain continues we would discuss surgery. I was 18 years old; no way did I want someone to cut me open. I majored in biology so I would be sure to have all the prerequisites for dental school. Then one day I had a meeting with my biology advisor and she brought up my injury and asked if I had been to a chiropractor I think I laughed in her face. I told her I didnt believe in chiropractors and didnt see how they could help me when all the other real doctors didnt do too much. Then she asked me do you even know what chiropractors do? and I honestly didnt have an answer. I still wasnt interested. My sophomore and half my junior year went by and I was still having significant issues with my low back pain and knee pain. I had given up playing any type of basketball and being physically active was a chore, which killed me because I was and still am an extremely active person. Finally it got to the point that my advisor yelled at me to see her chiropractor and I reluctantly made the appointment. It was by far the best health decision I ever made in my life. The doctor sat me down performed a full physical and orthopedic examination and ordered x-rays which he fully explained to me. I spent about 4 weeks under his care and by the end I was able to play pick up basketball games again. He took care of the underlying problems of the pain, which was being caused by the misalignment and fixation of the joints in my low back. I was pain free approximately 3 months after my first visit and it changed my life. I continued my path towards dental school but I knew what I wanted to do. When the time came to choose between dental school or chiropractic school I followed the path that I thought I could do the most good and thats how this skeptic became a chiropractor. Now I make sure that I provide all my patients with exceptional care by performing proper diagnostic testing and coming up with treatment plans that are tailored for their specific needs. For those out there that are skeptical about chiropractic and chiropractors I can relate. In every profession there are going to be good and poor practitioners so my advice would be do your research before choosing a provider and that goes with any health professional. You need to feel comfortable with them and make sure that they explain all findings with you and treatment options. To learn more check out .
