Neck Pain and Headaches – we are here to help…

We have seen many patients over the years who report neck pain and headaches or migraine more than a few times per week.

Many people believe nothing can be done about it, without ever considering the cause of their headaches!

Neck pain and headachesDon’t accept regular neck pain and headaches as part of normal everyday life – chiropractic treatment can help.

Research has shown that some headaches and migraines are caused or aggravated by poor function of the neck, shoulders and upper back and can be accompanied by neck pain.

Poor posture and poor work ergonomics can be contributory factors. If this is potentially the case for you, help is at hand.

Dr. Ben Martin here in Optimal Chiropractic is highly qualified and experienced in the diagnosis, treatment and management of headache and migraine.

Research also shows that spinal manipulation – the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.

Headaches have many causes, or “triggers.” These may include;

• foods

• environmental stimuli (noises, lights, stress, etc.) and/or

• behaviours (insomnia, excessive exercise, blood sugar changes, etc.).

About 5% of all headaches are warning signals caused by physical problems.

95% of headaches are primary headaches, such as tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease. The headache itself is the primary concern.
