There is nothing more debilitating than a headache, migraine or cluster headache. The pain is agonizing. The time lost is precious and feels like you’ve been taken to an alternate universe of agony.
There are only so many pain relievers someone can ingest. Often, these pills do little good. They give temporary relief at best, and at worst, rot your stomach and do no good. Some of the medications on the market have deleterious side effects.
Instead, consider Chiropractic for Headaches, Migraines or Cluster Headaches!
