Because headaches are so common, some people think that getting a headache is just a normal part of life!
- A headache is a sign that something’s wrong.
- Twisting of spinal bones, stress, toxic fumes, certain foods, preservatives, and alcohol are common culprits.
Headaches are not the result of an aspirin shortage in your body! Drugs simply cover up symptoms instead of addressing the cause of headache pain.
A frequent and overlooked cause of headaches is the malfunction of spinal bones in the neck and upper back.
When bones of the spine lose their normal position or motion, sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected. When spinal nerves and related tissues are stretches or irritated, they can produce throbbing headaches. Aspirin and medications may cover up these warning signs, but do not correct the underlying structural cause.
If a thorough examination reveals reduced range of motion, loss of normal spinal curves, or mechanical restrictions, chiropractic care should be considered.
