Nerve irritation is the leading cause of headache pain for many sufferers.
Our remedy of headache pain is two-fold:
Remove pressure on the nerves caused by spinal misalignments.
Reduce tension in neck muscles to minimize nerve pressure due to tight muscles.
It will help to understand what causes most headaches. Your spine protects your nervous system which starts with the brain and becomes the spinal cord. When the vertebrae in your neck are unable to move properly, it irritates or puts pressure on the nerves in that area. That can cause headaches. To correct this problem (called a subluxation) a chiropractor gently adjusts the vertebrae. Since most headaches are caused by subluxations, they will soon disappear.
