Headaches are one of the most common health concerns in today’s society. It is estimated at any one time, 15% of the population is experiencing head pain and they represent 10% of primary reasons why a patient will visit a chiropractor. There are different types of headaches ranging from a mild ache in the back of the head to full blown migraines where they are debilitated for a couple of hours to days.

There are many causes of headaches, with one of the main causes being irritation to the nerves that supply the head and neck. In chiropractic terms this is called a spinal joint dysfunction. Your body’s response to these dysfunctions is to tighten muscles to protect and attempt to correct. Other headaches can arise from problems of the jaw, sinuses, stress, hormonal problems, nutritional deficiencies or traumas from different injuries to name a few.

Like any symptoms, headaches and migraines are often a sign that your body is not working well, or that you have not been nurturing yourself. Chiropractic care helps to keep your nervous system free of interference from joint restrictions and help improve spinal health. This provides effective nerve function and can enable your body to function more efficiently.
