Headaches can ruin anyone's day. I am blown away by the number of people I talk to that deal with headaches on a regular basis. If you are having headaches more than a couple of times each month, something is wrong.


The question is obviously, "what is causing your headaches?" I guarantee you that it is not an Advil deficiency! You should expect nothing less from your healthcare practitioner than a careful evaluation into the root cause of your problem. Whether you're experiencing migraines, tension headaches, or cluster headaches, there are things you can do to decrease their frequency and intensity.

The first step is probably to start a diet and/or activity diary. This will help us narrow down the cause. Once we identify triggers, we can work to eliminate them. We can also utilize herbs and supplements that have proven to be effective. Many headaches are caused by tension in the muscles of the neck and dysfunction of the joints in that area. Headaches can also be caused by dehydration, TMJ dysfunction, or various other kinds of issues.

Chiropractic care has been clinically proven to decrease the frequency, duration, and intensity of headaches. Dr. Noah at the Boise Spine Center will do a thorough physical exam to determine if your headaches are the result of any of these issues and then well render the appropriate care to help you feel better fast.
