Headache and neck pain are common problems that affect millions of men and women around the world. If you are suffering from this type of condition, you're not alone. The good news is that chiropractic is the best way to not only treat these common issues, but also help avoid future episodes.
For many years, patients with neck and headache pain in Anchorage have been helped by the chiropractic adjustments of Dr. Matthisen. Our success is supported by a recent review done in Canada that found that non-surgical, non-drug treatments are the best choice for neck and headache pain.
The report looked at 15 studies from 1990 to 2015 and found that conservative treatment comprised of chiropractic adjustments, exercises, and stretches was recommended before turning to drugs or more invasive treatments.
Earlier studies have shown that chiropractic is effective and safe for neck pain and many other health conditions.
