Headaches are a big pain in the head for millions of people, disrupting lives. Migraines, tension headaches and the standard head-pounding variety debilitate 9 out of 10 Americans on a regular basis. Fuzzy eyesight, hyper-sensitivity to bright light and loud sounds, nausea and throbbing pain – these are all symptoms of headaches.
The majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck. Sedentary lifestyles, stressful jobs and commitments, and hours spent in one fixed position (such as sitting in front of a computer or TV) increases the incidence of joint irritation, muscle tension, and pain in the upper back and spine.

Many people are turning to chiropractic as a natural treatment for their migraines. Research shows that spinal adjustments provided by chiropractors are an effective treatment option for tension headaches, migraines, and headaches that originate in the neck. Studies indicate that chiropractic care helps patients reduce tension in the spine and alleviate stress-related problems without the harmful side effects of drugs.
Chiropractors help reduce and eliminate the effects of tension and migraine headaches in several ways by:
-- Performing spinal adjustments improve spinal movement and function, alleviating stress in the spine.
-- Provide nutritional training and recommendations including dietary and supplements.
-- Recommend and educate on posture, exercise and relaxation techniques.
There are several ways headache suffers can help themselves prevent and reduce headaches:
-- Take frequent breaks and stretch while working, reading or watching television
-- Exercise regularly with low impact exercises such as walking, gentle aerobics and mild stretches.
-- Avoid teeth clenching, which causes stress in the jab and skull.
-- Drink at least eight, 8-ounce glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration.
-- Eliminate caffeine and dairy.
