The Solution To Your Headaches May Be More Simple Than You Think!
While there are a number of different types of headache, most can be classified as neck headache or tension headache. Whiplash injuries, playing sports, computer work, physical labor, stress and poor posture can all cause tremendous strain on your neck. Over time this strain causes stiffness and pain in the neck, and eventually leads to headache.
Unless normal function is restored to the joints and muscles of the neck, headache pain can become chronic and can continue for years. This type of headache is often referred to as neck headache or tension headache. Most people with headaches have these ones, and chiropractic can help!

Headache Symptoms – What Are They?
Anyone who has suffered with them can tell you how closely they resemble both tension headaches and migraines. Pain usually starts at the base of the head and can travel to the forehead, temples and behind the eyes. The headache is often worse on one side and can be accompanied by throbbing or pounding, nausea, and sensitivity to light or sound. Pain and stiffness in the muscles at the base of the head, neck and shoulders is common as well.
Because of the similarity in symptoms, these headaches are often (mis)diagnosed as migraines and treated with medication. People can have them for years and not realizethat their neck is at the root of the problem, or that conservative treatment like Chiropractic and Active Release can help eliminate them for good.
Headache Relief – Can Chiropractic Help Me?
The first step in determining whether Chiropractic can help is with a proper evaluation of the joints and muscles of the neck. With the help of motion x-ray, Dr. McGahey can direct treatment to the specific joints in the neck that are causing your pain.
Chiropractic can help restore normal function to these joints, while Active Release therapy can break up scar tissue and improve flexibility and function in the neck and shoulder muscles. This can help provide fast relief of headache pain.
