Headaches

Headaches are very common, but they are not normal. Drug Treatments, while convenient, numb your nervous system and have negative side affects such as kidney failure and liver damage. They do not correct the underlying cause of the headache.

A common cause of headaches is when the spinal bones in the neck are not supporting the head properly. With this condition, some loss of motion in the neck may be experienced. This imbalance can cause pressure on the nerves going into the head causing sinus, migraine and general headaches.

One common type is cervicogenic headaches which can be caused by mechanical imbalances including poor posture, injuries (such as whiplash), incorrect pillows, sleeping habits or coddling the phone. The pressure on the nerves can cause pain to radiate from the back of the head into the area behind or above the eyes, as well as other locations in the head.
