What puts the ACHE in headache? 
The ache in headache does not come from your brain-your brain connot feel pain. During brain surgery a patient is often wide awake feeling nothing, even talking to the surgeons and nurses while his/her brain is being operated on. So what puts the "ache" in headache? It's the non-brain structures:blood vessels, membranes and cranial nerves in the brain and skull. When these structures are stretched, compressed, irritated, inflamed or infected, headaches often result. 

The Chiropractic Approach Why do millions of headache sufferers turn to the natural, drug-free chiropractic approach to health? 

That's because chiropractic has a unique healing approach-chiropractors are the only health professionals trained to analyze your body for a serious and often ignored condition that can damage your nerves, cause tissue inflammation, cause muscle to tighten and knot, weaken your body, cause fatigue and set the stage for sickness and disease. This condition is called subluxation. 

What exactly is a subluxation? It is a tiny distortion or misalignment in your spine and structural system that stresses your nervous system. What causes subluxations? Any physical or emotional stress that your body cannot withstand can cause your spine and structural system to develop a subluxation. 

Why does chiropractic work so well? The reason may be that most headache sufferers appear to be carrying around subluxations in their bodies and don't even know it. Chiropractors correct the cause of a patient's health problems, rather than give pain killers and other drugs which only treat the symptoms or suppress the disease symptoms and drive them deeper.

I saw Doc when I was a senior at central college. He really took great care of me and the patients received great treatments. I just graduated chiropractic school 6 months ago and want to thank Doc for the motivation to pursue chiropractic school.
