The American Chiropractic Association recommends chiropractic spinal manipulation to headache patients if they have tension headaches or headaches that originate in the neck. However, a recent very public case has brought new concerns about chiropractic neck manipulation causing vertebral artery dissections that could lead to strokes.
A little known fact, even amongst PulStar doctors, is that PulStar offers a gentler, more scientific solution to headache patients.
The protocol allows DCs to go beyond the spine and treat headaches at the source.
Our method involves a combination of low-level impulses at pressure points around the hairline combined with our Essential Elements lotion, which fights pain at the musculoskeletal level.
Neck pain or headache may be an indication of arterial dissection, so a thorough review, and possibly an angiography should be undertaken before any manipulation takes place.
