Headaches

Headaches are common and there are many different types. Many of the causes of headaches can be successfully treated by chiropractors.

Tension headaches

Headaches are often caused by too much tension in the neck, shoulders and back. Chiropractic treatment may help tension type headaches (often band like pains at the front and back of the head).

Treatment may also improve function of the jaw. Clenching the jaw and grinding the teeth can often be a major contributor to tension headaches.

Neck Injuries

Chiropractic can often be very effective in the treatment of headaches that have resulted from repetitive strain to your neck (known as cervicogenic headaches). These types of headaches usually give dull and aching pains, affecting the base of the skull or the temple areas.

Migraines

Migraines are severe headaches and are often accompanied by other symptoms, which include increased sensitivity to light or sound, nausea or visual disturbances that can last for hours or days. Problems in the neck can sometimes be a contributing factor in migraines. Chiropractors can indentify loss of normal movement in the vertebrae of the spine, and through treatment can improve their function. This in turn will reduce stress on the muscles, joints and nerves, which may be causing the problem.
