Headache is one of the most frequent health complaints.  Chronic, or regularly recurrent headaches, are extremely common.  Eventually, nearly everyone will get a headache, and most headaches are a symptom rather than a condition and an indication that something else is wrong.  Americans consume several tons of pain relievers each year seeking relief from these sometimes life-changing maladies.

Some of the more well-known types of headaches are migraine, cluster, and tension.   A person may have a tension or nervous headache brought on by everyday stress.  Headaches may also occur from eye disorders or vision problems, teeth problems, blood pressure problems, fevers, infections, some medical tests, brain tumors, or from the side effects of drugs.  When spinal vertebrae misalign even slightly causing pain, a headache may occur.  This is known as a vertebral subluxation.

Correcting the cause is the only way to effectively treat headaches.  If your headache is caused by eye problems, eyeglasses may be the answer.  If the cause is a sinus or ear infection, controlling the infection can bring you relief.  If your headache is caused by a “pinched nerve,” examination, diagnosis, and correction of the contributing subluxation by your Doctor of Chiropractic may be the answer.

When you have a headache, seek help from your Doctor of Chiropractic.  Chiropractors are the most qualified health care professionals, because of their training and experience, to analyze and treat vertebral subluxations that are the number one cause  of  “pinched nerves.”  The vertebral subluxation irritates the nerves that are creating interference with the forces that control and coordinate the body.  The spinal adjustment will correct this subluxation and nerve irritation and allow normal flow of nerve impulses to restore function and health.  This allows the body to restore itself to a greater level of health and in the process relieves pain.
