Chiropractic / Applied Kinesiology Approach To Headache

Although a very common human ailment, headaches more often than not do not warrant a visit to the doctor’s office unless they have become unbearable or worrisome. It is important to remember that pain is a warning sign that something is wrong and headaches are a sign that something needs attention. Second only to low back and neck pain, headache is the most common reason why patients seek Chiropractic care in the U.S.

As experts in musculo-skeletal disorders, Chiropractors have a very high success rate in the resolution of both chronic and acute headaches. This success is based on the fact that Doctors of Chiropractic using A.K. arrive at the cause of headaches without resorting to running all sorts of unnecessary exams. As such, relief is often found in just a few short visits and results are long lasting.
