The study looked at 26 adolescents with chronic headache. Those who reported headaches 25 days out of each month also reported taking aspirin, acetaminophen or codeine on a daily or near daily basis (average of 28 pills each week).


When these youths stopped taking their ‘medication’, their headache frequency dropped to fewer than 3 days per month.

    This research supports what doctors of chiropractic have long suspected: pain medication often does more harm then good. 

Chiropractic… the natural drug free alternative.
