“Neck Pain & Headaches” Workshop 1-17-19 (full video of live event)
Jan. 18, 2019

Just in case you couldn’t make it to this live event at the clinic, I recorded the entire workshop!

I start things off by talking about the 4 structures that can cause neck pain and headaches…

And then we move on to the top 3 reasons these structures get aggravated.

After that, I discuss successful treatment options (for lasting pain relief).

In addition, there are quite a few good questions and stories from the audience. So if you’re suffering from neck pain, with or without headaches, the information in the video should really help!
