Headaches are one of the most common reasons for visiting the Doctor of Chiropractic. More than 250 million work days are lost each year due to headaches, at a cost of 25 billion dollars per year. There are many types and causes of headaches such as:
- Cervicogenic – problems with the neck
- Muscle Tension – neck and upper back muscular spasms
- Post-traumatic – following head/neck trauma; ie, whiplash
- Drug induced – from aspirin overuse for example
Research has shown that the most common types of headaches respond well to chiropractic care. Doctors of Chiropractic recognize that a headache is the body's warning alarm that the pain may be attributed to muscle tension and irritation of the nerves and tissues in the neck
