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.
When most people get a pounding headache, they continue on with their day, lie down, or take pain medication.
Ninety-five percent of headaches are tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. Dr. John will ask you a few questions to determine what type or types of headaches you are experiencing.
Many people think headaches only come from the head or neck. Headaches can come from the head, neck, upper back, or shoulder. Poor posture can cause headaches, where the head is in front of the shoulders.
Loss of neck curvature and increased/decreased mid curvature can cause headaches. This can occur EVEN IF YOUR HEAD IS NOT FORWARD of your body. X-rays can be used to measure spinal curvature. This is one of Dr. John’s specialties. See Chiropractic Biophysics.
