Headaches

Headaches

Do you suffer from headaches at least once or twice a month?  If you do, you are not alone more than 9% of the US population suffer from 1-2 headaches a month.  In fact with just about 1 in 10 people suffering from a headache every month can you imagine the impact on families, jobs, and the economy?

While headaches are very common, it doesn’t mean they are something you have to live with.  The symptoms of headaches are very similar but the causes are diverse.  In fact, there are over 300 different causes for headaches.

The most common of these headaches include:

  1. Cervicogenic– problems within the neck
  2. Muscle-tension– neck and upper back muscular spasms
  3. Post-traumatic– following head/neck trauma, i.e. whiplash
  4. Drug-induced– from analgesic overuse
  5. Migraines
  6. Cluster

The good news is that headaches can be treated successfully.  Chiropractic care can provide long-term, safe, and effect relief from headaches.  The success rate is so  high because as you can see above most headaches are caused by a spinal or muscular problem.
