Everyone has had a headache at one time or another. It is one of the most universal of ailments and affects men, women and children alike. Americans spend millions of dollars yearly to get relief.
Among the seemingly endless varieties of headache, some of the more common are tension, migraine and sinus headache. All types, however, can be mild or severe, temporary or persistent, and the pain associated with them can vary enormously from dull to sharp, from throbbing to pressure-like and pounding, or any combination of these.
The chiropractic physician can offer considerable relief for headache victims but it is essential that he or she first make a complete evaluation to differentiate among the possible causes. An accuate history, examination, and specialized tests must be performed, a procedure for which the chiropractic physician is expertly trained.
