There are many causes of headaches, including physical trauma, muscle tension, emotional stress, nutritional deficiencies, or environmental toxins. Additionally, if your neck or back are not moving properly, this can affect the nerves, muscles, and blood flow traveling to your head. Many people turn to over-the-counter medications in an effort to relieve their discomfort.
These help in the short-term by masking the underlying source of the pain but in the long-term can have dangerous side effects. Chiropractic care can provide lasting relief by addressing the root causes of pain.
