Suffering from a Headache is NOT normal...but quite common

Suffering from a headache is very common in our world today, unfortunately many people don't realize that it is not normal. Recent published studies have found that over a one year period, more than 38% of subjects suffered from some form of a tension headache. 

Did you know that the origin of a headache is often your neck? The nerves in your cervical spine (neck) have been shown to be the common link with various different types of headaches

How Can Chiropractic Care Help my Headaches?

At your FREE initial chiropractic consultation at Advanced Vitality, your chiropractor will review your health history and perform a thorough physical examination to identify any vertebral subluxations you may have.  Additionally, the treating chiropractor will review other factors such as chemical, emotional and physical for clues as to the cause of your headaches.

If vertebral subluxations are identified, your chiropractor will perform various safe and gentle chiropractic adjustments to help restore correct function/mobility of your neck and alleviate the pressure on the nerves that connect to the skull.
