While back pain is a great reason to visit a Lithia Spring chiropractor, headaches are also a big reason that a lot of people first visit a chiropractor. In fact, 90 % of Americans have complaints of frequent headaches. While most headaches are minor and not always a reason for concern, they can be annoying and affect everyday life.
