The throbbing, pounding sensation of a splitting headache is an all-too-common condition for millions of people each day. 50 million people battle headaches on a regular basis and 12 million suffer from headaches daily. What is considerably worse is that more than half (28 million) of those regular headaches are migraines. And lastly, recent studies have revealed that 20% of children are regularly suffering from headaches.
Headaches can be a debilitating problem that can jeopardize your employment, decrease your enjoyment of recreational activities, and interrupt your family life.
Headaches are so common that the International Headache Society has classified 129 different types of headaches! The most common headaches which make up over 85% of those studied come from the muscles (muscle tension), blood vessels (migraines), and joints (from the neck called "cervicogenic").
Many people resort to medication to find relief from their headache pain. Unfortunately, the relief they find is often fleeting, and the pain returns once again. Some medications may offer a measure of pain relief, but at the expense of the ability to function at work or even drive a car (read any warning labels lately?). For most, it seems as though no matter how many pills they take, the headaches keep returning, and in many cases with increased severity and frequency.
