Nerve irritation is the leading cause of headache pain for most sufferers.
Headaches are very common and because they happen regularly, often people refer to them as "just a normal headache". However headaches usually happen for a reason and for many people chiropractic treatment can be a very effective way of treating headaches.
A chiropractic examination can determine whether the headache may be caused, or aggravated by any misaligned vertebrae in the spine, a condition known as a subluxation, which may be creating undue nerve interference.
Some patients enjoy results quickly. Others notice a slow decline in their symptoms after several weeks or longer of chiropractic care. It's impossible to predict. If you've had chronic headaches for many years, improvement can take time.
There are an estimated 4.5 million Canadians that suffer from severe, recurring attacks of migraine and tension headaches. They spend upwards of $40 million each year on over-the-counter and prescription drugs in their search for permanent relief. A cycle of headaches and medication often occurs without any lasting relief found.
Recent studies link headache pain to nerve irritation.
One study, conducted at the University of Maryland, found a connection between muscle tension at the base of the neck and headaches. Muscle contractions interfere with the sensitive fibers at the base of the neck that lead to the brain and spinal cord. This muscle tension often plays a contributing factor to headache pain. Another study conducted by Dr. Wright found that the vast majority of migraine headache sufferers had misalignments of the spinal vertebrae in the neck that placed pressure on the spinal nerves.
