Cause of Headaches
Most Headaches are from Tension or Old Injuries
Tension headaches involve abnormal pressure and stress in the upper neck or back of the head. Irritation of the spinal joints and nerves at the base of the skull cause pain in the back of the head.
Tension headaches characterized by: Pain base of skull, pain with head movement, pain in temporal region.
Migraine headaches involve circulation from the vertebral artery which travels through the spinal vertebra into the base of the brain. The circulation can be affected by abnormal nerve stimulation by the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous systems controls the dilation or constriction of arteries.
Migraine headaches characterized by: Severe pain on one or both sides of head, upset stomach, blurred vision.
How to Relieve Headache Pain
Chiropractic treatment helps to:
- Release joint pressure
- Soothing effect on the nerves
- Increased joint motion

The same nerves are responsible for the constriction or dilation of the arteries and veins of the head and neck that cause muscle tension or migraine headaches.
