Man with headacheAt best, headaches are a nuisance that throws a wrench in our day. At worst, headaches are debilitating and interfere with our ability to work and enjoy life to the fullest.

According to the World Health Organization, one out of every 20 people suffers a headache every day.

Don't reach for that bottle painkillers: chiropractic care provides a comprehensive and all-natural headache treatment.

What Causes Headaches?

Scientists have identified over 300 different causes and types of headaches. The most common types of headaches include:

  • Migraines

  • Tension headaches

  • Cluster headaches

  • Eye strain headaches

  • Medication overuse headaches

  • Sinus headaches

Notice anything interesting about that list? If you suffer from frequent headaches, popping a pill every time the pain arises does more harm than good because it can lead to dependence and more headaches.
