New Roads Chiropractic Center Offers Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

New Roads headache. It is a condition from which many people suffer. Cervicogenic and tension-type headaches are two of the more often discussed ones. The cervicogenic headache is associated with issues with the cervical disc, facets, and joints. The tension-type headache is related to neck muscles caused by stress or peculiar head positioning. Both headache forms are responsive to gentle, safe stretching type treatment like Cox® Technic used at New Roads Chiropractic Center.
