Headaches & Treatments

Headaches & Treatments: The most common cause of headaches can be associated with neck health issues, however, problems anywhere along the length of the spine, even low back pain and sciatica, can cause head pain. From spending excessive time looking down at a laptop, desktop, iPad, and even texting, improper posture can cause pressure to increase on the neck and upper back, leading to health issues that could cause headaches. Many types of headaches occur as a result of muscle tightness between the shoulder blades, which in turn, causes the muscles and soft tissues on the top of the shoulders to tighten, radiating pain into the head. If the source of the headaches is associated with a health issue of the cervical spine or any other region of the spine, chiropractic care, including spinal adjustments, manual manipulations, and physical therapy, can be a good treatment option. A chiropractor may often follow-up chiropractic care with a series of exercises and physical activities to improve posture as well as offer advice for future lifestyle improvements to avoid further complications like sciatica.
