What Causes Headaches?

For most people, headaches are usually caused by irritation in the muscles or joints of the head and neck.

With the increase in the use of technology, more people are experiencing postural issues. Improper ergonomics at the workstation, more hours sitting at the computer, nesting your phone between your ear and shoulder all contribute to the stress buildup in your neck.

Chiropractic care helps decrease irritation with adjustments, soft tissue work to relieve muscle tension, or cervical traction. Exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles in the neck may also be beneficial.


Migraines are not just bad headaches, they’re much more complex in nature. The pain from a migraine can be debilitating—it’s one of the worst types of naturally occurring pain a person can experience.

  • Vision problems
  • Extreme pain
  • Vertigo
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Tightening of the muscles in the neck and shoulders
  • Extreme light sensitivity

Some patients are so severely affected they must lie down in a dark room to get relief. Symptoms may last from a few hours to several days.
