HEADACHES

The latest research shows that 9% of men and 12% of women experience at least 1-2 headache episodes per month and more than 4% of individuals suffer from frequent headaches that occur at least 180 days per year.

Researchers have identified over 300 pain-sensitive structures and tissues which could lead to headache, including the skin, subcutaneous tissues, muscles, arteries, bone, and various nerves in the head and neck that could produce headache when irritated or injured. The most common headaches are called cervicogenic because they are caused by excessively tight neck muscles which usually refer pain into the face around the eyes.

The most common headaches include:

  • Cervicogenic headache due to problems within neck muscles or nerves
  • Tension headache resulting from neck and upper back muscular spasms
  • Post-traumatic headache following head or neck trauma, i.e. whiplash
  • Drug-induced headache from analgesic overuse
  • Migraine headache
  • Cluster headache

As highly trained neuromusculoskeletal specialists, chiropractors are able to readily identify the spinal, muscular or habitual components of headache and they commonly provide effective treatment to help thousands of headache sufferers obtain safe, long-term relief from their pain.
