Headaches

If a man sits down to think, he is immediately asked if he has a headache.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quick Facts

  • In developed countries, Tension Type Headache (TTH) alone affects two-thirds of adult males and over 80% of females.
  • Chronic daily headache: up to 1 adult in 20 has headache every or nearly every day.
  • According to the American Pain Foundation, 90%of headaches that aren’t caused by a disease are tension headaches.
  • Headaches can be caused by numerous triggers, food, stress, lack of sleep, blood sugar, hormones, repetitive motions and the list goes on and on.

The good news is 95% of headaches are primary type headaches, which means there is no serious underlying cause of the headache. Primary type headaches include tension type headaches, migraine, and cervicogenic (caused by abnormal motion in the neck).

No matter the cause, all headaches have three things in common, they are miserable, they disrupt our lives, and we want them to stop and never come back.

Chiropractic Care Can Help Headaches

Research has shown that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment option for tension type headaches and those that originate from the neck. Furthermore, a report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.
