The service that chiropractors address manipulates the basic cause of the majority of these headache types. While headaches are common, do not assume they are normal.
Drugs and painkillers
In our society drugs are becoming increasingly more convenient; however drugs (such as painkillers) that reduce the body’s capability to process pain can also come with unwanted side effects. Note that painkillers merely mask the symptom of pain and do not provide a cure to the headache itself.
