Headaches & Migraines
Nine out of ten Americans say that they suffer from headaches. Some of these people experience headaches frequently. Some experience constant headaches that are very painful. These can even make a person nauseous. Ninety-five percent of headaches are tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused from a disease, but from something in your body that is not sitting correctly.
Since back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, it is vital to know how to prevent the cause of back pain. By maintaining a healthy diet and weight, remaining active and avoiding prolonged inactivity or bed rest are all important ways to avoid back pain. Before doing exercises or any physical activity, it is recommended to warm up and/or stretch.
The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

Pregnancy is a beautiful life experience. However, a woman’s body goes through enormous changes during pregnancy. Mothers can develop poor posture and more than 50% of pregnant women experience low back pain due to ligament laxity and a shifted center of gravity. Chiropractic care can help optimize pregnancy and protect the health of the mother and unborn baby. It also allows for a shorter labor, ideal positioning of the baby in the womb, and less of a chance for invasive practices during the birthing process.
