There are a number of different types of headaches that occur in many different locations on the head/neck. Some headaches can be mild or severe, and variable to when they occur.

Over time these problems will get worse if left untreated. Chiropractic care can help improve range of motion alignment to help minimize pain and sciatica symptoms. Improved alignment and proper joint function can help to minimize problems later on down the road.
Neck pain is one of the top complaints from people who drive or sit too long during the day. Many times these can be chronic problems, but also can occur acutely from a car crash or fall.
