Many of his patients and professional colleagues refer to Dr. Jason Gonzales, DC as the headache specialist in Chico. Truth be told the work Dr. Gonzales does wasn’t intended to be just an effective headache treatment, but a treatment for several different types of chronic health problems.
Before hearing about Dr. Gonzales and his track record of success with headaches (tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches, cluster headaches), many of his patients have spent years (and thousands of dollars) trying to treat their headaches with conventional approaches – multiple medications, injections, special pillows or devices, massage, acupuncture, diet and lifestyle modifications, or general chiropractic care. Nothing they’ve tried has been able to give them what they’re looking for… a lasting, drug-free solution to their frequent headaches.
The primary reason Dr. Gonzales has a success rate much higher than conventional methods is his ability to improve the nervous system function of his patients. The latest research demonstrates that most recurring and chronic headaches are primarily a central nervous system problem, so it makes sense to focus treatment on improving and stabilizing the function of the nervous system, not just focus on the masking the pain (which seems the chosen focus with conventional treatment).
Even though Dr. Gonzales is considered by many to be a headache specialist in Chico he doesn’t accept every patient that seeks his help. He performs a thorough evaluation process to ensure he only accepts the cases that would be a good fit for the treatment protocols. There are a few other causes of recurring migraines and headaches and he needs to be sure he discovers that in the initial exam process and refer those particular cases out to another type of doctor.
The actual treatment involves a precise adjustment to the first or second vetebrae in the patient’s neck – a highly specialized adjustment not every chiropractor is able to perform. When the joints of the upper neck become misaligned and/or stuck (usually caused by a physical trauma) they disrupt the function of the central nervous system (specifically the autonomic nervous system). The type of chiropractic care is known as upper cervical chiropractic and is only performed by a relatively small number of chiropractors.
