Headaches are a very common complaint that millions of people suffer from. The causes of headaches are numerous and can include
-toxicity (i.e. air pollution)
However common these are there is something much more common at the root of many headaches… misaligned spinal vertebra.
This is referred to as a subluxation.
A spinal vertebra being misaligned causes headaches in 3 ways.
-Pinches nerves that supply the neck muscles thereby reducing the function of the muscles in the neck.
-Putting additional strain on the muscles in the neck to compensate for the misalignment.
-Irritates the joint capsule (soft tissue holding joints together) of the involved joints.
These three things combined lead to tension headaches and also contribute to migraine headaches. By addressing the misaligned vertebra with chiropractic adjustments the bones are returned to their natural alignment and headaches are improved or resolved entirely.
If you have regular headaches consider scheduling an appointment with a chiropractor today. It could be the best thing you ever do for your headaches.
