Re: Chronic head pain

Hey D, I'm no chiro but a well experienced patient. Yes, any structural misalignment results in a physical constriction (of muscles, blood vessels, nerves, etc), and these 'cramps' can easily remain forever and become progressively debilitating if not properly rehabbed. Thus, neck misalignments could surely cause chronic headaches.

I have to admit I'm not surprised that a normal doctor might miss spinal misalignments. For chiros, please know that each chiro can be very different in terms of their practice and methodolody. One may do only physical manipulation, while another may include muscular massage or even energy work.

I believe that the best treatment involves primarily muscular massage techniques with some physical manipulation (and maybe even energy). One chiro practice that basically does this is Rolfing. Hope this helps
