Chiropractic and Headache


Headaches are one of the most common reasons that people come to see us at Align Chiropractic. It's an area that we have a special clinical interest in. When you have a headache it can affect every part of your life. It's more than the pain, it often makes it harder to work, look after your family and enjoy time with your family and friends.

Headaches vary a lot in how severe they are and how often they come.

There are many different causes of headache. Headaches are generally divided into two groups:

  1. Secondary headache where the headache is caused by some other problem. Common types of secondary headaches are sinus headache where the headache is caused by a problem with the sinuses and cervicogenic headache where the headache is caused by a problem with the neck.
  2. Primary headache where the headache is not associated with any other underlying problem. Common types of primary headache are tension-type headache, migraines and cluster headaches.

When someone consults us seeking help with headaches our approach is to ask you questions and do a detailed examination to better understand the type of headache you are experiencing. From this we will formulate a plan based on your unique findings.
