Headache Specialist

Headaches are more than just a nuisance; they can be debilitating, featuring intense sensitivity to light and sound, sharp pain, blurred vision, and even nausea. These symptoms are familiar to Dr. David Adler, a chiropractic headache specialist based in Roswell, Georgia. It’s crucial to recognize that frequent headaches are not normal and addressing their root causes is essential for lasting relief.


At Adler Comprehensive Chiropractic, Dr. Adler specializes in the chiropractic care of headaches. He explores the underlying factors such as muscle tension, disrupted blood and nerve flow, and spinal misalignments (subluxations) that contribute to headache symptoms. While over-the-counter medications might offer temporary relief, they do not tackle the origin of the headache and can have adverse effects on your overall health. Even after 34 years of treating patients, it still surprises me when people accept headaches as a normal part of life,” Dr. Adler shares. “When are headaches ever normal? Think about it—does it make sense for your body to suddenly suffer such intense discomfort without a significant reason?


Dr. Adler emphasizes the importance of patient education, helping you understand the treatment process and the rationale behind each adjustment. The approach at Adler Comprehensive Chiropractic isn’t just to treat headaches but to eliminate their causes. By addressing the root problems, Dr. Adler can significantly reduce the severity of your headaches or even eliminate them entirely.


Dr. David Adler is a dedicated chiropractic headache specialist accepting new patients in Roswell, Alpharetta, Marietta, Johns Creek, Cumming, and throughout North Fulton County, Georgia.

Q & A About Headaches

by David N. Adler, DC
Before we can answer any questions, there are some terms you need to know. Dr. Adler specializes in the detection and correction of the “Vertebral Subluxation Complex.” Vertebral subluxation is a condition where spinal vertebrae are not in the correct alignment and create changes in the ability of the nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body clearly both from the brain to the body and the body back to the brain. This causes a less than optimal function and adaptability of the body.

Headaches are not all the same, and it’s important to know that. Some affect certain areas of your head, while the pain from others is more widespread and can travel into the neck, face and even shoulders. Some headaches flare up from specific triggers and cause sharp pain, and can last a few minutes. Others cause a dull ache, but last for hours.

Cervicogenic headaches: that usually affect multiple regions and stem from the neck and upper back.

Tension headaches: that usually affect the top of your head and temples, especially toward the end of the day.

Cluster headaches: that usually affect one side or one part of your head.

Migraines: that typically occur on one side and cause severe pain that can last for hours and many more …

Chiropractic adjustments bring your spine back into its proper alignment. When you have problems with your upper spine, this can put pressure on the nerves in this area, triggering headaches.

Dr. Adler provides chiropractic care for headaches by analyzing your spine to check for alignment, motion and strength, and apply specific adjustments to correct what isn’t working properly.

You can get headaches on a regular basis for many reasons. Physical trauma, emotional stress, and chemical toxins are major factors. One of the newer common causes of recurring headaches is what’s known as ‘text neck.’ This occurs when you have your head bent at an angle for long periods of time while using your phone or typing on a tablet, laptop, or computer. And in this day and age, who isn’t?

You can also get headaches from chronic stress or from underlying health conditions, such as high blood pressure. There are also headaches that occur with no evident cause.

Text neck refers to the pain and discomfort you experience in your neck and head from keeping your head bent while texting or looking at your phone or other handheld devices. When you keep your head in this position for long periods of time or on a frequent basis, it can affect the upper part of your spine and irritate the nerves in your neck and head. Dr. Adler predicts that many of our teenagers and children will begin to see problems in their necks; things like herniated discs and arthritic changes at a very young age. Shoulder complaints, upper back pain and stiffness, and upper extremity problems will begin to show up much earlier than in previous generations as a result.

Dr. Adler eases this discomfort and prevents it from coming back by correcting spinal subluxations in your upper spine.
