Most people think that headaches are caused by being tired, loud noise, or being stressed. These can all contribute to your headache; however, the main cause might just be tightness in your shoulders and neck. This tightness can lead to misalignment in your neck vertebrae, which can be painful.
Are You Suffering with Headache Pain?
If you suffer with headaches, you are not alone. In fact, 9 out of 10 people in the US suffer with head pain, according to the American Chiropractic Association. Headaches can be dull or throbbing and can come on once in awhile or frequently. Some can even cause nausea and debilitating pain. How do you find relief from a painful headache? Many people reach for the bottle of pills, but there is a better solution.
