We hear this all the time: “Oh yes, I get headaches, but they’re just normal.”
Listen closely. There’s no such thing as a normal headache.
A frequent and overlooked cause of headaches is when the bones in the neck or upper back get misaligned. When bones of the spine lose their normal position or range of motion, it can affect nerves and blood vessels to the head. When spinal nerves and related tissues are stretched or irritated, they can produce throbbing headaches. Medications can cover up these warning signs, but they do nothing to correct the underlying structural cause.
That’s exactly what structural chiropractic adjustments do.
They correct the underlying cause of headaches.
We’re talking about all kinds of headaches…
- Tension headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Sinus headaches
- Migraine headaches
- Neurogenic headaches
- Stress related headaches
Do you get headaches?
Whether you’ve been living with headaches for days or decades, please don’t keep suffering any longer. In our experience, most headaches are caused by a spinal subluxation. And if that is the cause of your headaches, we have good news: We can help you.
Dr. Martin has a special interest in helping people get rid of headaches because that’s what got him on the path to becoming a chiropractor in the first place. In high school he had a wrestling injury that resulted in extremely painful headaches. He tried a number of different things, but nothing and no one could help him. He finally went to see a chiropractor. There, once the originating problem was corrected in his neck, he finally experienced relief. That’s when he decided to go to chiropractic school and become a chiropractor himself.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, give us a call to schedule a complimentary consultation. There’s a very good chance that structural chiropractic care could be the solution you’re looking for.

A lot of kids have headaches but lack the vocabulary to know how to explain it. If you see your child squinting or rubbing his neck or head or seeming more tired than normal, that could be a sign he is experiencing headaches.

PLANKS. Planks engage the abdominal muscles and back muscles, stabilizing the spinal column and mimicking proper lumbar alignment. To do them right and protect your back: Start on your forearms to avoid shoulder strain. Keep your abs tight the entire time. Do not let your back sag. Square your hips with the floor. Have someone take a picture or set up a timed photo/video so you can check whether your back is straight. This is a better way to confirm your posture than using a mirror, because the mirror requires you to twist your neck in the middle of the pose.
