The silver lining to all this is that Orange Wellness can help you relieve the stress that causes this by limiting the pressure on your spinal cord and nervous system.

Our chiropractors can perform spinal manipulations or adjustments to improve spinal function to alleviate the stress that headaches wreak on your system. They are also capable of providing advice on diet, posture, ergonomics, exercise, and relaxation techniques. Headaches are caused by a misalignment or chemical interruption in your system.
