Headaches are a common ailment in today’s world, but that does not mean they are normal. Fifty-seven percent of men and 76% of women report at least 1 significant headache per month. People often rely on drugs as a band-aid to relieve their symptoms, however this does not address the root cause of the pain. Many headaches are actually caused by dysfunction in the joints of the neck. When the bones in the neck are misaligned they can put pressure and tension on the surrounding nerves and muscles contributing to the headache intensity. Chiropractors are well trained on the classifications of headaches and how they should be treated.
