Headache Care in Sedalia

Woman with head painJust because they’re common doesn’t mean they’re normal! If you suffer from headaches—from migraines to sinus and everything in between—Dr. Rick at Longie Chiropractic offers a natural approach that corrects the underlying problem without the use of pain relievers or other medications.

What Causes Headaches?

With over 45 years’ experience, Dr. Rick Longie believes that the number one cause is subluxation in the cervical spine. That means that a vertebra of the neck gets out of alignment and puts pressure on the nerves, which results in pain.

Migraines are often caused by two bones in the upper neck that are going in opposite directions, and must be addressed individually.

Our Approach

What makes us different is that we take spinal X-rays before beginning any care. Not only does this help identify specific vertebrae that are out of alignment, it also helps identify or rule out other issues—in one year, Dr. Rick discovered spinal cancer in three different patients. So we believe it’s important to have all the facts before beginning care.

Once we have identified the cause of your pain, we use a very specific manual adjustment to correct the alignment of the subluxated vertebrae. Your care will be tailored to your specific situation, with gentle adjustments to restore optimal spinal alignment and eliminate pressure on the nerves.

How You Can Help

We’re happy to help correct your spinal misalignments—but prevention is best! There are a few things you can do at home to help minimize the spinal misalignments that cause nerve interference. The first is to vary your head position while doing computer work to reduce strain. Sleeping on a good pillow can also help. And drinking plenty of water is always important to keep your body working as it should.
