Headaches are something everyone seems to be familiar with. They are nearly impossible to avoid as no one can entirely avoid getting the flu, becoming dehydrated, or having stress. These are all common causes of headaches. Some headaches are mild while other are so severe they interfere with daily activities. What are the options when it comes to caring for headaches?
The easiest thing for most to grab is an over-the-counter pain medication. This is often followed by a nice, quiet nap in a dark, cool room. If a headache has become severe, it may call for a prescription pain medication. However,, many headache sufferers wait as long as they can before taking any medication, as they are often concerned with the serious side effects that come along with medication. These can be particularly dangerous when used over a long period of time. This is leading to a new trend in headache care: natural, safe options. But do they really work? Let’s look at one that has been proven to be effective.

Headaches Helped Through Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
There are two vertebrae that are located just below the skull in the neck. Here at Vital Life Wellness Center in Dublin, CA, we focus on making sure these bones are in proper alignment. A misalignment here is often to blame for headaches as it hinders blood flow and neurological function. We care for people with all headache types from common tension headaches to severe migraines or cluster headaches. We examine each patient thoroughly to find the exact location of his or her misalignment so we know what is the root cause of the headaches.
We then employ a method that is both gentle and precise in order to realign the neck bones. We do not have to pop or twist the neck to get positive results. Once realigned, blood flow and nervous system function are restored and headaches often improve or even dissipate.
