Headaches

In order for us to make decisions, process emotions, and carry on with our day-to-day lives we must be able to think clearly and calmly. That clarity can be easily destroyed with a strong headache. Many people have occasional headaches, but frequent headaches that affect your ability to sleep or get on with your day can be disabling.⁠

Common types of headaches are tension, migraine, and cervicogenic headaches.⁠

Tension-type headaches commonly present as band-like tension around the head, whereas migraine headaches usually result in pain on one side of the head and are commonly accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.⁠

With cervicogenic headaches, the neck is the source of the problem but the pain is perceived in one or more areas of the head and/or face. The causes of headaches are not always well understood but a family history of headaches, neck stiffness and stress are common factors.⁠

As chiropractors and physical therapists, we can assess, diagnose, and manage headaches. Current evidence suggests that our holistic care, including manual therapy, can be effective in treating cervicogenic and tension headaches. A 2011 JMPT study found that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, improves migraine and cervicogenic headaches.
