Eatontown woman finds relief from nausea and headaches at Red Bank, NJ multi-disciplinary wellness facility
We’ve all experienced nausea and headaches at some point in time, and I think it’s fair to say that it’s a terrible experience to endure.
Now, try to imagine what it would be like to feel nausea and headaches every day for more than a year.
To me, this sounds like a nightmare, and yet, one of our patients here at Monmouth Spine and Rehabilitation Center had been suffering from nausea and daily headaches for nearly a year and a half before visiting our office. So far, no medication had worked to help her find relief.
In addition to the nausea and headaches (or perhaps because of them) she was unable to sleep properly. No doubt this created a cycle of pain, nausea, and sleeplessness, with each symptom exacerbating the others.
This patient—a 67-year-old woman living in Eatontown, NJ—came to us for help and, in a short period of time, began to reap the benefits of treatment in a very real way.
We began by performing specific cervical (neck spine) adjustments after finding a misalignment in the upper part of her neck. After the very first treatment, she returned to the office later that day thanking us and letting us know that her first adjustment had been a success—she was no longer nauseous! The nausea returned for shorter periods of time throughout the course of her treatment and, eventually, she was able to remain free of nausea and headaches for longer stretches of time.
A form of neck traction to correct a misalignment in her neck was also incorporated into her rehabilitation and pain management plan, as well as therapeutic exercises and postural re-education. Posture is an extremely important component to health—one that I think many people underestimate in terms of its value to good health. When the spine is not properly positioned, the nervous system is negatively affected; this can produce a wide variety of symptoms and can affect pretty much every aspect of the body’s functioning.
Ultimately, the stretches of time between episodes of nausea increased until our patient was no longer experiencing nausea at all. As of today, she has had two solid months free of nausea, with a period of time prior to that where nausea was only intermittent (during treatment).
