Headaches are a common problem that can be triggered by many different factors, from stress to an undiagnosed spinal injury. If you suffer from headache, chiropractic can help! There are a few different types of headaches:
Tension headache: These are caused by tight muscles in the neck and head. Chiropractic can help reduce muscle spasms, which can give you relief from headaches.
Migraine: Migraine is a severe form of headache that can have a dramatic impact on your quality of life. Studies have found that chiropractic manipulation can reduce both the frequency and the duration of migraines.
Cervicogenic headache: About 20% of headaches actually originate in the neck. These types of headaches are called cervicogenic, and they are very common after an auto accident. Studies have shown that chiropractic care can be effective in treating this type of headache.
