Chiropractic Care and Headaches


Have you ever experienced a headache? In America, nine out of 10 people have experienced some type of headache in their lives. Some are occasional, some are more frequent and the quality of the headache varies from person to person. There are different types of headaches that can affect our daily activities, but about 95% of headaches are considered "primary headaches" (this include tension headaches, migraines, and cluster headaches). The majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck area. Research shows that spinal manipulation may be an effective treatment option for these types of headaches. Chiropractic care in combination with exercises and nutrition can significantly improve the quality of headaches. If you are experiencing regular headaches contact your Chiropractor today to discuss treatment options.
