Resolving chronic headaches by addressing the root cause

We Look Deeper

Headaches are the number one reason we see patients, and fortunately, we have solutions. While some headaches can be attributed to stress or tension, the latest medical literature reports that some cases of chronic headache are caused by a problem in the neck—and that they are often misdiagnosed or unrecognized by physicians.

The Root of the Problem

These “cervicogenic headaches” have their “genesis” in the cervical spine. They arise when the nerves, joints, or muscles of the neck are injured or strained. Pain signals from the neck can get mixed with nerve pathways of the head and face, and can create pain in seemingly unrelated parts of the body. Neck movement, injuries, or an awkward posture can trigger these headaches.

This guy is awesome! He’s not your average, strip mall chiropractor. You can walk into his office with a migraine and walk out without one. I’ve been in chiropractic care for 6 years and he is outstanding. Other chiropractors would adjust my ribs and jaw every week and I’d still continue to have the same problems every week. Dr. Alexander knows bodies and he can really change your quality of life!

Treating the Cause

Medication may relieve pain temporarily, but if the root cause of the pain is not eliminated, the symptoms will just return down the road. The first step in treating headache is to take a careful history and perform a thorough physical exam. This will help us determine the precise source of your pain, and help us design an effective treatment plan.

Chiropractic care can be a great way to treat headaches, since we work specifically with the spine to make sure that it is functioning properly. Our specifically prescribed therapy provides traction and exercises to balance musculoskeletal health (or musculoskeletal strength and flexibility), improve posture and function and decrease the incidence of headaches.
