Headaches, broadly defined as a continuous pain in the head, are one of the most common conditions to effect our brains with 1 in 20 adults experiencing a headache nearly every day. Whether it expresses itself as a classic ache, or effects other parts of your body, it’s a familiar pain that can happen to anyone at any time. 

Migraines, on the other hand, are different. They’re recurrent and typically affect one side of the head. They’re often accompanied by nausea and disturbed vision. Unlike the average headache, a migraine has the intensity to put a person out for one or several days. 

Although chiropractic treatment for headaches and migraines may not be your first instinct when considering options, Morelli Chiropractic can help you find the cause of your symptoms and alleviate your pain.
