Do you experience frequent headaches? You are not alone. In this country, nearly 1 in 4 households includes someone suffering from migraines. According to the American Headache Society (AHS), migraines and severe headaches are leading causes of disability throughout the United States. Recent studies suggest migraines and severe headaches disproportionately affect women, with the overall prevalence being 20.7% in females and 9.7% in males. And, attacks generally last between 4 and 72 hours.

Research has found that spinal manipulation may be a successful treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. These manipulations are performed by Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs), most commonly known as chiropractors. These chiropractors have undergone extensive years of training to help patients with spine-related problems in various parts of the body.

Chiropractors help by examining the tension of the spine and taking steps to relieve pain and misalignment. These spinal adjustments alleviate the stress on your system. Chiropractors can also provide nutritional, posture, and diet advice, as well as exercise and relaxation techniques to help you better manage your headaches.
