Are you suffering with neck pain and constant headaches? Do you experience sharp, steady and severe pain on one side of your head or perhaps pain radiates down to your neck? Maybe you suffer with a dull throbbing pain in the sinus cavity? How long do your constant headaches last… a few hours or all day? Do you experience headaches at certain times of the month, based upon the weather or after you eat certain foods?
In the US, headache statistics are staggering… 45 million Americans suffer with chronic headaches. The American Headache Society reports that every ten seconds, someone goes to the Emergency Room with a headache or migraine. Is it any wonder that over $1 billion is spent on over-the-counter medication each year for relief of headache pain?
The International Headache Society classified headaches into three categories:
Primary Headaches: Over 90% of all headaches fall into this category. They include Tension Headaches (Stress Headaches), Migraines and Cluster Headaches.
Secondary Headaches: Less than 10% of all headaches fall into this category. They may result from a sinus infection, brain tumor or aneurism.
Cranial Neuralgias/Facial Pain: A minimal amount of all headaches fall into this category. They are caused by inflammation of the nerves in the head or neck and facial pain caused by trigeminal neuralgia and other headaches.
The majority of headaches are not a sign of a serious, life threatening health problem. Alternative doctors have been able to detect the true causes or triggers of most headaches. Through proper diagnosis, headache treatment and preventive measures, headache severity/frequency has been alleviated or dramatically reduced without drugs or surgery!
Simply killing headache pain with medication is not enough! The cause, the reason why you are in pain must be detected and corrected!
Headache Causes or Triggers:
Subluxation (Spinal Misalignment)
Physical Stress: Poor posture, whiplash, slip and fall, head injury
Chemical Stress: Allergens, Toxins, Nutritional Imbalances, Dehydration, Alcohol

This is achieved via chiropractic care, therapeutic massage therapy and nutritional counseling. Regular exercise, proper posture, correct sleeping and resting positions, nutritional support, a healthy diet and relaxation skills are vital to a headache treatment program.

“I had chronic daily migraines, which were getting progressively worse. They were so severe, that I was unable to work. In addition, I had to leave graduate school. I treated with other physicians and therapists previously, but I still suffered with painful migraines. I almost gave up hope, when a friend referred me to Kessel Wellness Center. Thanks to the care that I received, I went from being in a constant migraine state to having only a few migraines per month. In addition, the Center provided homework exercises for me to do. I now have the quality of life I want… one that I almost gave up hope of ever having.” – M.H.
“As a model, I travel around the world. I often fly on a weekly basis. Due to my lifestyle, along with the added physical stress of wearing high heels, I started to develop severe headaches, low back pain and muscle spasms. My stress level was high and I was even having difficulty sleeping. Thanks to Dr. Kessel and Kessel Wellness Center, my life changed! The chiropractic care and adjustments that I received, corrected the physical and muscular stress placed on my body. Now, my headaches are just about gone. If I ever do experience a headache, I come in, get adjusted and walk out headache-free! My pain is gone, my posture is greatly improved, I sleep better and have reduced my stress.” - P. B.
