Headaches & Chiro
Unfortunately chronic headaches affect too many people. Often, changing seasons can contribute to exacerbations in headache frequency. Certainly contributing factors to headaches can be: increased stress, strain from daily activities, kids not listening to you, traffic, and cranky spouses.
There is also one amazing contributing factor to repeating headaches that most people that suffer from headaches don't even consider. The upper cervical or (neck) vertebrae and the muscles that mechanically help function in that area support the base of our skull and the constant abuse of that area from everyday movement is a major contributing factor to recurring headaches.
During the course of my 25 years in practice in Chester County, helping headaches has been a consistent and wonderful part of my practice. I urge you all to refer anyone you know that does have headache problems to our office. Of course, any questions that people may have please remind them to call the office so we can answer them.
Happy Fall...and Happy (Jewish) New Year to all!
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
