Headache is a very common symptom amongst the general population. 57% of men and 76% of women report at least one significant headache per month. Although headaches are common, this doesn’t imply it’s normal. And while drugs conveniently suppress your ability to sense pain, they do not correct the possible underlying cause of the headache.

The Upper Part of the Neck

In many cases, headaches originate from the upper three cervical vertebrae and the surrounding muscles. It is often accompanied by neck, shoulder and/or arm pain.

Restoring the motion in the spinal joints will lead to an decrease of the headache. Click here for more detail on the effects of chiropractic.
