Chiropractic Care for Headaches and Migraines
If you have a headache, you’re not alone. Nine out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea. What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down? Pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? There is a better alternative.
Chiropractic care, which includes a combination of spinal manipulation or adjustments, active and passive exercises, and muscular massage, is often used for headache management as well as prevention.
