Research shows that around nine out of every ten Americans suffer from headaches. There are various types of headache and they can range from mild to severe. Tension headaches are one of the most common, and they can cause mild to intense pain in your head, neck, and behind your eyes. Migraines are another form of headache, and they are often considered one of the most severe since they are almost always accompanied by a range of debilitating symptoms. These can include visual disturbances, slurred speech, and temporary memory loss.
Many people who experience regular headaches and/or migraines find that there are certain things that can trigger them and learn to go out of their way to avoid them.

This is usually in the cervical spine, which is the upper part of the spine that is located in the neck.
