Chiropractors help millions of people overcome pain and suffering from headaches every day.  Spinal adjustments provide a healthy alternative to the use of drugs or surgery. Many people remain unaware of the alternative approach and benefits available through Chiropractic adjustments. These same people find themselves consuming dangerous chemicals to deal with painful symptoms rather than ever addressing the cause of headaches and other ailments. Today’s research reveals that the root cause of most headaches begins with understanding the characteristics simplifies the pursuit of finding a solution.

What causes headaches?

Brain tissue does not cause a headaches pain. The main culprits of headache pain stems from changes in muscle function, nerve receptors, and blood vessels. Humans never actually feel their brain. This lack of sensation explains why neurosurgeons operate on brain tissue without ever causing a patient to feel discomfort. Some cases even exist where doctors perform surgery while the patient remains awake! Headache pain does not stem from the brain, but rather from nerves, blood vessels, and tiny muscles sending altered feedback into the brain. Those messages produce the perception of pain.
A study produced in the mid-1990’s revolutionized headache research. A Russian-born researcher named Dr Nikoli Bogduk determined that all headaches shared a relationship with the neck. Dr. Bogduk noted that every single headache sufferer shared an important connection, abnormal nerve function in the upper neck. Dr. Bogduk embarked on years of study and published numerous findings that proved the connection. The unfortunate state of health care over 25 years later finds that despite massive amounts of research, the medical community remains largely focused on drug therapy that targets symptoms without ever addressing the pain source.
The three most common types of headaches include tension headaches, sinus headaches, and migraines.

How Chiropractic Care Helps

Chiropractors help people with all types of headaches by assessing and correcting misalignments and restrictions in the spine and upper neck. The science and research of natural healing began validating this healthy alternative many years ago and millions seek Chiropractic care as their primary care provider for correcting the cause of headache pain.
Statistics show that over 16 percent of the population suffers from frequent and recurring headaches. The drugless solution to reducing the stress and pain of headaches exists in the scientific explanation that brings relief to so many people through the power of proper nervous system function found in Chiropractic care.
