Pain is our Friend

When to Head to a Hospital with a Headache

As I’ve mentioned time and again, headaches are not normal. Whether it is a sinus headache, a headache because your spine is out of alignment, a migraine or a tension headache, there is always a root cause that needs to be addressed. A headache can also be the sign of a stroke. Stroke is a
