Chiropractic and Headaches: What’s the Connection?

Do you get frequent headaches?  It may be time to give us a call.

Although there are thousands of triggers that can cause headaches, one thing we know for certain — there is always a reason.  A headache is the body’s way of telling you something is wrong.  Taking over the counter medication may help alleviate the symptoms short term but do nothing to address the underlying issue.

When it comes to your body, everything is connected.  For example, a painful wrist could actually be a spinal complication, whereas elbow pain can actually result from a shoulder misalignment.

Of course, headaches can also be directly related to the spine, being caused by several ailments including:

  • Back Problems
  • Misalignment
  • Poor Posture
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Lifestyle/Stress
  • Anxiety/Depression
