Headaches: Not All In Your Head
About 20% of the population suffers from the pain of chronic headaches. These same people spend over 5 billion dollars on “over the counter” medications each year. And, while these drugs may cover up the symptoms, they do not treat the cause of the headaches.
Pain experienced during a headache is a warning signal that something is wrong, like a fire alarm signaling trouble. Pulling the batteries from the alarm does not address the cause. The same holds true for headaches. A thorough chiropractic evaluation can determine whether a subluxation, a misalignment of spinal bones, is causing pressure to the nervous system, producing the headache.
Chiropractors are the only health care professionals trained to analyze and correct spinal nerve interference resulting for a spinal joint dysfunction. In our society today, spinal nerve stress caused by subluxation has literally reached epidemic proportions.
