There are many types of headaches including cervicogenic, tension, migraines, cluster and stress induced headaches.
Most types of headaches can typically be related to an issue with disruption or decrease in nerve flow and/or blood flow to the head and neck region.
This results in:
- decreased feedback to muscles, ligaments, discs and joints in the area
- muscle spasm
- decreased movement/stiffness
- pain in the shoulders, neck, head, face, jaw or even eyes
Chiropractic treatment of headaches commonly involves locating and correcting areas of restriction in the neck to release the tension build up and reduce the frequency and severity of headache episodes.
