Headaches are the second most common symptom people complain about when they first visit one of our chiropractic Clinics. Headaches that are caused by problems in the neck may benefit from chiropractic care. When vertebrae in the neck lose their normal position, alignment and movement pattern sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected. Spinal nerves and related tissues may be stretched and irritated causing headaches.
If examination shows a reduced range of motion, loss of the normal curve or loss of normal motion in the neck, then chiropractic care should be considered. Gentle specific chiropractic adjustments together with lifestyle advice and exercises can help correct these problems and many people report pain relief.
