Headaches are not normal.
I have been a chiropractor in St. George, Utah for ten years. I see hundreds of neck pain and headache patients a week. It may shock you to know that I see new patients every week who have had chronic headaches for years who tell me “isn’t having headaches normal?”. Let me be the one to share with you all that daily headaches are NOT NORMAL. Every headache has a cause. The cause may be stress, dehydration, muscle tension, sleep deprivation, altitude change, injury, hormones, cancer, or a million other triggers. Don’t assume that because you get headaches frequently that it’s OK. You need to be checked out. The cure to your headaches may be as simple as drinking more fluid. In about 30% of the cases I see, headaches are associated with some type of dysfunction in the cervical spine region. These are called cervicogenic headaches. They are treatable through chiropractic manipulation, physiotherapy, and muscular retraining. If you have headaches, and want to do something about them, get check out.
