Most people would opt for a pill. Unfortunately it seems that is the answer for most ailments these days. Just how safe IS that pill though? Why not try a safe, natural and effective approach instead.
The most important thing to do is figure out WHY you're experiencing your headaches. Nine out of ten times in which a headache patient presents to our office, they have some sort of postural distortion. Have you noticed lately that your shoulders are rounded foward and your head and neck jut out in front of your shoulders? Probably not. Most times it's such a subtle shift you need a specialist trained in posture assessment to detect it.
Postural deviations are all too common today. If you are a stomach sleeper, work in front of a computer, carry heavy bags, text, play video games and/or talk on the phone frequently YOU are at risk.
These subtle deviations result in spinal distortions, muscle tension and stress to your nervous system. Headaches are just ONE of the first symptoms to occur. Spinal adjustments, pressure points, along with customized exercise protocols work to restore a healthier posture so your body and nervous system are free to heal naturally.
Be sure to have your posture and spine evaluated BEFORE your next headache begins.
