Headaches are one of the most common ailments that cause a person to seek chiropractic. Ninety percent of American adults suffer from headaches occasionally. Though intensity and duration may be different from one person to the next, most headache sufferers can find relief through chiropractic.
Why Do We Get Headaches?
Headaches come from many different sources. Only about 5% of headaches are related to other disease processes. The most common headache is an isolated headache, meaning it is the primary issue. These types include migraines, tension headaches, and cluster headaches.
In our practice, the most common ailment we associate with headaches is a misalignment of one of the bones of the neck (vertebrae). This can be from stress, posture, prolonged use of computers and electronic devices, etc.
