Headaches

Headaches affect just about everyone at some point in their lives and are one of the most common reasons people visit a chiropractor. Physical, emotional and chemical stressors can cause misalignments of the spine that irritate nerves and cause headache pain.

Headaches can be due to a wide variety of causes including, spinal pinched nerves, TMJ, tightness in the neck muscles, low blood sugar, stress and fatigue. Other causes of headaches include: physical trauma, emotions (anger, fear, worry), and chemical toxins (alcohol, drugs, preservatives, pollution, or poor diet). Also, medications used to treat headaches can become a cause of headaches if overused.

The majority of recurrent headaches are of three types: tension, migraine, and sinus headaches. Headaches can be alleviated by chiropractic manipulation and treatment that involves safe, specific adjustments particularly to the neck, upper back and spine to relieve nerve pressure, muscle spasm, and improve circulation to the brain. In additional to traditional chiropractic, a variety of headaches respond very well to holistic therapies such as Applied Kinesiology, NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique), Acupuncture and Nutritional Therapy.
