Headaches are something many people suffer from and often use over the counter medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen to alleviate this type of pain and discomfort.  The problem with treating just this one symptom is that often these headaches are experienced throughout someones lifetime.  Without addressing the cause, the headaches really never go away.  It is also extremely important to address what type of headache you are experiencing so proper treatment can be administered. Too often all headaches are treated the same,  Chiropractic offers spinal adjustments that treats your specific type of headache, resolving the root cause, as well as alleviating the pain symptom.

“There are 129 different types of headaches, and often people suffer from more than just one type of headache. There are multiple causes which the most common cause being neck injuries, past auto accidents, sports injuries, and chronic postural habits.
