Headache is a common pain symptom, and a recent study shows that chiropractic can alleviate certain kinds of headaches.
Cervicogenic headaches originate in the neck, and they often start with some kind of neck injury due to trauma or an auto collision.
Researchers in this new study worked with 80 patients with chronic cervicogenic headaches. Patients received either chiropractic adjustments or light massage.
Patients in the chiropractic group improved substantially more than massage patients. Not only did chiropractic patients have better scores on pain and disability tests, they also experienced a 50% reduction in overall symptoms. By the end of the study, they had a 33% reduction in medication usage.
Chiropractic restores the normal flexibility and function of the spine to relieve cervicogenic head pain. If you’re suffering from headache, chiropractic can be a safe and effective way to treat pain and improve your health.

Really great experience, the masseuse is professional and friendly and she really worked out the kinks in my back. The Chiro is very thorough and takes his time explaining all the options. I have found my new Chiro office and they have great prices too! Very pleased:)
Excellent place! Dr Jain is D best Doctor Chiro. He knows where, what and how to make you feel good. I was suffering with lower back pain and he was on dot in getting it taken care. Been to lot of places and spend lot of $. But since I meet Dr Jain he fixed my back right and I am a happy camper. Very efficient and friendly staff. Highly recommend this place!
Dr. Jain is AMAZING!! I've been to some crappy chiropractors, this guy knows how to heal and adjust. I'm a musician and was having carpal tunnel like symptoms. He cured my pain and I can play guitar again without my hands tingling and going numb.
I was referred by the woman who gives me massages. She was right . He is so informative. I got into a car accident in March and finally decided to go in and see a chiropractic. Best decision ever. Totally worth it
I have been to this clinic for Chiro treatment. Dr Bharat explained to me about my pain and the reason why I have the pain. I am impressed with his knowledge. I truly recommend this clinic. The staff there is amazing.
Dr. Jain works together as a team to make sure that his patients are not hurried, given great care and leave happy. He explained thoroughly about my conditions and educated me on how to take care of it in the future. He really takes time with his patients and listens to them.
