Posted February 06, 2019 11:19:38A chiropractor, chiropractor friend, and a chiropractor family friend have discovered a new way to treat the symptoms of a common headache: by using a device called a “chiropractic electrode.”
Chiropractors are specialists in treating the body’s nerve systems.
When the body has a headache, its pain can be overwhelming, and many people have to resort to prescription painkillers to treat it.
The electrodes used in the devices are placed on the scalp and neck of people with migraine headaches.
The electrodes are placed in an area of the body where the nerves connect.
When they touch, the nerve is stimulated.
The doctors and chiropractors say this type of treatment is a good way to reduce pain without going overboard, and they have been doing it for many years.
The problem is, most people don’t like the electrodes.
People don’t feel any difference when they’re placed on their scalp and in their neck.
Some people report a temporary numbness in their area.
Others complain that they feel as though the electrodes hurt.
The headaches are also very uncomfortable.
For some people, it’s a relief to have an electrode on their neck, but for others, they’re uncomfortable to touch.
The doctors and the chiropractic staff are working to find a solution that works for everyone.
Chiro-Surgery: A Treatable HeadacheA chiropractor has an electrode placed on his scalp.
He describes it as an electrical stimulation device.
“The electrodes are a device that is placed on a person’s scalp and connect to the electrical nerve in the brain,” said Dr. Chris Mercer.
The doctor said the electrodes are attached to a device which is attached to the scalp, called a spinal cord stimulator.
“It is a little piece of wire that sits between the scalp vertebrae, and it connects to the spinal cord.”
The electrodes on the spinal cords connect to nerves in the skull and spinal cord.
“The electrical stimulation is the main way that the nerves in our body communicate with each other,” said Mercer, adding that the electrodes provide a direct electrical stimulus to the nervous system.
“When we use a device like that, we use it to stimulate our nerves,” said Derek Griffin, a chiropractore for more than 20 years.
“And we then send that signal to our brain through the spinal nerves, to activate that nerve in order to relieve that pain.”
He added that the technique is very safe and has been proven to work.
“We have had a lot of patients who have used this method,” he said.
Dr. Mercer has also found that some people have experienced relief from headaches that weren’t related to the electrodes, including people who have a mild headache, people who get headaches at night, people with migraines, and people with a chronic pain condition.
He said that a person with a mild migraine or migraine headaches will experience no pain and will not feel pain during the treatment.
The pain will be “substantial,” Dr. Merced said.
When the patient has no symptoms or symptoms that don’t improve during the course of treatment, Dr. Griffin said that he may feel better.
“But we’re not going to go as far as we should go, because we’re still going to need to have a physical exam,” he added.
Chiro-Surgeons have also been using this type the treatment for many, many years to treat many different types of headaches.
“If you have a headache that’s caused by an injury, and the only thing that’s changed is the electrical stimulation, then we are treating it,” Dr Mercer said.
He said that there are also other types of headaches that don�t respond to the electric stimulation, including migrainas and certain kinds of chronic pain.
“You know, you’re not supposed to be using electrodes when you have these chronic pain conditions,” Dr Griffin said.
The device can be used to treat other kinds of headaches, such as those that occur while sleeping or when the person is tired.
The treatment can also be used during an operation, to relieve pressure in a cut or fracture, and when a person has a chronic illness.
Dr Griffin noted that many people who had experienced migrainics before the electrodes were put on didn�t get relief from the electrodes after they got back to their normal lives.
Dr Mercer noted that the therapy can be very effective for people who already have migraine headaches, even if they haven�t had them for a while.
He noted that some of the patients that have had migraine headaches since they started using the device have also had other types, including chronic pain, which can lead to chronic migrainous headaches.
“People can experience relief from these headaches,” he explained.
“That’s the way it is, in my opinion.
It�s a treatable headache, and we know that.”Dr Merced
