Headaches be gone!!!

So if you know much about me you know that I have suffered with headaches since my early college years. I have been on many different meds and I do use a medicine that helps me when I start feeling bad; however, I still get headaches every week and sometime multiple days per week. Its terrible!!!

Well...a little over 3 weeks ago on a Sunday I was feeling head was killing me and despite medication my headache still wasn't going away. My mom came over to massage my neck and shoulders (she's always so sweet to me) and she mentioned that maybe I should get a chiropractic adjustment to help. My medical training is obviously in western medicine and although we learned alot about other medical treatments, I can't say I know tons about things like chiropracty and how it works. Conveniently, my brother is in chiropractic school and he's pretty dang amazing!

I had never been adjusted before so I didn't really know if it would make a difference for me, but since my brother has his own adjusting table and has been taking a lot of neck and upper back adjusting courses, I decided to give it a try. He came over to my house, set up his table and adjusted my neck and back. I couldn't believe how much better I felt even the same day! The rest of that week I didn't have any headaches and I've been adjusted every weekend since then and have probably only had 1 headache total during this whole time! I've been really amazed! I'll keep taking my medicine, no doubt, but I've become a real believer in how much a chiropractor can help! And...I'm really proud of my little brother....he's going to be great!
