Headaches can range from an annoyance to completely debilitating, and although a cause can often be difficult to determine, there is one cause that chiropractic does and incredible job at treating!
Many people have headaches due to subluxations in their upper cervical spine. For them, chiropractic can resolve the underlying problem and offer them lasting headache relief.
In 1994, 26 patients with chronic headaches due to upper cervical joint dysfunction were treated with chiropractic care. 24 of these individuals reported a decrease in the severity and frequency of their headaches.
Tension headache sufferers also experience a lessening of pain when treated with chiropractic adjustments, as recorded in a 1995 study in the Journal of Manipulation & Physical Therapy.
If you or someone you love suffers from headaches on any level of frequency and severity, and it’s been at least 6 months since you’ve had a spinal nerve evaluation, make it a priority to see your Kennesaw chiropractor today!
