Headaches and Migranes
Headaches may be common, but they’re not normal. Every headache has a cause. A headache is your body’s way of signaling you that something is not right.
Our experience shows that most people’s headache seems to come from structures around the neck: the joints and nerves in the upper neck, the muscles of the upper shoulder, and the muscles of the temporomandibular joint, which is the jaw. Those three areas are the keys to headaches and migraines.
While muscle tension headaches and migraines are by far the most common types of headaches, sinus infections and other problems such as high blood pressure, nutritional deficiencies, allergic reactions and others can also lead to headaches
Research shows that spinal manipulation – one of the primary treatments provided by our chiropractors – improves migraine and cervicogenic headaches.
