Are Headaches Affecting Your Daily Life?

Some estimates suggest 25% of Americans have a headache right now! That means 1 in 4 people are experiencing an unnecessary symptom of some greater problem going on within their body.

A frequent & often overlooked cause of headaches is the malfunction of spinal bones in the neck and upper back. When your spine loses its normal position or range of motion, the nerves and blood vessels leading to the head can be affected. Stretching and irritation of these can lead to chronic ache, dull tension and even throbbing headaches.

Pain killers are a common source for relief, but only temporarily. A headache is a symptom of a greater problem and pain medication only treats the symptom. A chiropractic examination could potentially identify the source, treat & relieve your pain long term.

Here’s a quick look at the difference between treating symptoms, and treating the source.
