Headaches can often be helped by chiropractic care. Tension headaches, migraines and cervicogenic headaches often do well with chiropractic treatments. Many times the underlying cause of these headaches can be traced back to misalignments of the cervical spine that cause muscle spasm and strain leading to headache pain. When neck muscles are tight, knotted, irritated or in spasm it can affect the nerve endings in the neck and head causing pain and decreasing normal blood flow which is essential for proper function.
