  • (1888PressRelease) September 30, 2011 - Dr. Barry Hitchcock, whose chiropractic experience spans more than three decades, is providing his patients with safe solutions for their chronic and migraine headaches. Headaches are a common occurrence but chronic headaches, which are defined as headaches that occur at least 15 days in one month for three successive months, affect about 5% of the population. A migraine headache, which is pulsating and last from 4 to 72 hours, tends to affect one side of the head. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.

    "Regarding headaches," says Dr. Hitchcock, "many patients who I see have tried painkillers, which may have treated the symptoms but did nothing for the actual cause of the headache. With chiropractic treatment," he notes, "we can actually treat the cause of the headache, relieving symptoms effectively and helping the patient's body cure itself."

    Dr. Hitchcock uses manipulation to relieve stress on nerves. This opens up channels of communication in the central nervous system, which allows the body to begin to heal while alleviating symptoms. Chiropractic treatment is completely natural, which means it eschews drugs, relying upon the bodies natural healing powers. Patients in the Athens, GA, area have found that Dr. Hitchcock's techniques are effective in relieving symptoms and in helping the their bodies find their balance.

    "In many ways," notes Dr. Hitchcock, "the healing process is about ensuring that the body is in balance and that all pathways of communication are properly functioning. The process of relieving stress on nerves, once the root cause is found, is relatively simple and always painless." He adds, "Usually, the process involves a lessening of the occurrence of the headache and then a ridding of the pain entirely."

    The doctor points out that there are various causes for headaches, which can include behavior, other maladies and lifestyle choices. Causes include allergies, stress, lack of sleep, diet, sensitivity to changing weather conditions and other factors. Pinpointing these factors is also an important part of the treatment process.

    Dr. Hitchcock's family practice treats a various health related issues, including back pain, neck pain and disc problems. He also offers special soft tissue techniques that aid with Carpal Tunnel, Plantar Fasciitis, shoulder aches and knee problems.
