The root of most headaches can be traced back to two things; dehydration or a misalignment in the neck. Yet, most doctors are quick to pull out their prescription pads and move on to the next patient, without fully addressing the problem at hand. Handheld devices (cell phones, tablets, electronic games) have dramatically increased the accessibility and usage of technology, especially by very young children.

People visit their doctors complaining of headaches everyday. The past decade has showed shocking rise in disease, due to poor lifestyle choices and bad postural habits. More and more of us are hunched over in front of a computer screen all day, then come home to another session of computers and television, we pop out our phones and check the latest updates on social media. What we don’t realize is that these choices are causing misalignments in our spines, which puts unnecessary and often dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves responsible for the function of our organs. If nerve energy can’t reach our vital organs, they will go into a state of dysfunction and eventually disease. In other words, our sedentary lifestyle causes migraines and many other problems.
Serious lifestyle changes, including improved postural habits, proper hydration, and most importantly correction of the spinal misalignment will not only eliminate headaches and migraines from its source, but ensure a healthy body for decades to come.
