"Doctor, I've tried everything for my headache and nothing has helped. I've had skull x-rays, EEG's, brain scans and CAT scans. I've been to two neurologists, and to a neurosurgeon. I've had my eyes tested and glasses checked. I've been to a dentist to check my teeth and an EENT specialist to have my sinuses examined. Nobody has found a thing wrong with me. I keep getting these excruciating headaches. 

I've tried tranquilizers, Valium, codeine and anti-depressants. Many times I've had to go to the emergency room for a shot of Demerol. I'm beginning to think it's futile to try anything." 
Such is the story of many patients before coming to our office for care. Over 15 million people suffer from recurring migraine headaches, not counting the millions who have other types of headaches. Medical authorities estimate that at least half of all the people who visit doctor's offices are in the grip of a headache. We spend over four billion dollars a year trying to ease the pain.

There can be a wide variety of injuries that lead to persistent headaches. Repeated strain ay be all that is necessary to precipitate the headaches.
