Headaches and Chiropractic
- The negative impact of chronic headaches on quality of life, families, and productivity can be significant and is generally underrated by the medical profession.
- Chronic use of aspirin actually promotes chronic tension headaches.
- The National Headache Foundation estimates that over sixty percent of all children suffer from occasional headaches
- Over 70% of all headaches arise from problems with the cervical spine and its related structures.
Vertebral misalignments are common cause of headaches. Misalignments restrict the movement of the nerves and muscles, causing inflammation and direct impingement leading to headaches. Medications fail to alleviate headaches because they focus on only the symptom without addressing the underlying cause.
