Many people suffer from throbbing headaches on a regular basis. But most of these people would not even consider a chiropractor to help them ease this pain.

Not many people consider chiropractic treatment for their headaches since they normally associate a chiropractor as one who deals with the back and lower body pain.

Also most people are conditioned to use pharmaceutical products to easy their headaches and pain and not many people think of using alternative techniques like relaxation therapy or reflexology to help them manage their pain.
