HEADACHES & MIGRAINE
Headaches affect half the population, are more frequent in woman, and commonly occur in the 40’s. There are many different types of headaches; however a large percentage of all headaches arise from issues in the joints & muscles of the neck. These are known as cervicogenic headaches, and can be severe and debilitating. Cervical / cervicogenic headaches can persist for days or weeks. Pain is most commonly reported in the occipital region, temporal region, behind or above the eye and in the ‘neck/shoulder’ region. Poor neck posture, poor sleeping posture, increased stress & strain and previous trauma like whiplash or other neck injuries are notably associated with these headaches. Headaches of cervicogenic origin respond well to chiropractic care. Chiropractors correct the joint, soft tissue or movement issues that lead to headaches. Frequency, intensity and duration of headaches are significantly reduced following manual therapy.
