Headaches

Over 90% of headaches are cervicogenic in nature (originate in the neck muscles) and are primary headaches and are not caused by a condition or disease (such as a migraine or a brain tumor). The headache itself is the primary concern.

Nine out of ten Americans suffer from these types of headaches and the symptoms can cause debilitating pain, dizziness and nausea. Most originate with muscle tension in the upper neck and are associated with our modern lifestyle. Our activities are much more sedentary and we stay fixed in one position or posture for many hours. This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing pain at the back of your head to radiate commonly to the eyes and temporal region.

There is a better alternative to taking pills for your headache pain. Research shows that primary headaches, which are commonly caused by subluxations in the upper back and neck, is effectively treated with chiropractic.

What Else Can You Do?

The ACA suggests the following:

Remember too, that headaches have many causes, or “triggers”. These may include foods, environmental stimuli (noises, lights, stress, etc.) and/or behaviors (insomnia, excessive exercise, blood sugar changes, etc.). Only about 5 percent of all headaches are warning signals caused by physical problems.
