If you have a headache you are not alone. Research has shown that 9 out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. Some symptoms vary based on the severity. They may range from a mild, dull headache to extreme pounding pain that is debilitating. There are many types, which present themselves in different ways. Three of the main types are shown below. Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy can be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and problems that originate from the neck.

  • Cervicogenic headaches usually caused by misalignment or nerve irritation in the upper neck. This causes pain from the back of the head to the front on only on one side of the head.
  • Migraine headaches can be very distressing and last from a few hours to several days. Symptoms include pain, dizziness, nausea, and visual disturbance.
  • Tension headaches are very common and often patients who seek chiropractic care experience immediate relief from the symptoms of the headache following treatment.

Patients suffering with migraine headaches experience a significant reduction in the frequency of headache episodes.

After we have carefully diagnosed your condition, we can then give you recommendations for appropriate care.
