Headache and neck pain are common problems that affect millions of people around the world. If you are dealing with this type of issue, you're not alone. The good news is that chiropractic is a great way to not only treat these common problems, but also help avoid future episodes.
For many years, patients with neck and headache pain in Portland have been helped by the chiropractic care of Dr. Helton. Our experience is supported by a recent review done in Canada that found that non-surgical, non-drug solutions are the best choice for neck and headache pain.
The review looked at 15 studies from 1990 to 2015 and found that conservative treatment comprised of chiropractic adjustments, exercises, and stretches was advisable before turning to drugs or more invasive treatments.
Earlier studies have shown that chiropractic is effective and safe for neck pain and many other health conditions.
