Headaches

Headaches are common but not normal. Pain medication only gives temporary relief and masks the underlying cause.

Patients often complain of pain when they turn their head, pain at the base of the skull, over the forehead or behind the eyes. You may even get associated symptoms such as dizziness, visual changes or nausea.

Commonly head pain is caused by mal- alignment of the spine that leads to nerve irritation, muscle tension and reduced circulation to the head.

A thorough examination by the practitioner will detect the compensatory patterns in your spine.
