Neck Pain and Headaches.  Unfortunately, these two intimately related CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROMES are all too common here in the United States.  How common are they?  Listen to what Allysa Brown of the Gallup Polls wrote almost exactly two years ago. “More than one-third of Americans in their mid-50s and older have chronic pain in their neck or back.”  When speaking of the problem of headaches in children, the February 2002 issue of The American Family Physician said this in their opening paragraph of a story on “Headaches in Children and Adolescents“.  “Headaches are common during childhood and become more common and more frequent during adolescence. An epidemiologic survey of 9,000 school children found that one third of the children who were at least seven years of age and one half of those who were at least 15 years of age had headaches.  The prevalence of headache ranged from 37 to 51 percent in those who were at least seven years of age and gradually rose to 57 to 82 percent by age 15. Before puberty, boys are affected more frequently than girls, but after the onset of puberty, headaches occur more frequently in girls.”  It’s probably safe to assume that depending on age, somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of all American adults are fighting a battle with CHRONIC NECK PAIN and / or CHRONIC HEADACHES.

While there are a wide array of potential reasons for this (GLUTEN SENSITIVITY, FAILURE TO MANAGE BLOOD SUGAR, etc, etc), one of the more common is ADHESION OF THE FASCIA coupled with SUBLUXATION.  If you are one of those people who can barely turn their head, or who gets relief from Chiropractic Adjustment, but it never seems to last; watch the video below.  If you feel like it, you can watch some more videos (HERE).   Cooper (below) was at the end of her rope.  She had been through all sorts of tests, including BRAIN SCANS.  The medical community’s solution?  DRUGSFortunately; for most of you there is a better and far less expensive way to deal with this problem.  And the really cool thing is that doing it this way actually addresses underlying causes as opposed to simply covering symptoms.
