Severe headaches are extremely common, affecting about 1 in every 6 adults in the US every day. Women are twice as likely as men to suffer from chronic headaches.

When you visit us for headache treatment, we will identify the root cause of the headaches, usually vertebrae that are misaligned or have subluxations that put pressure on your nerves. By gently adjusting the alignment of your neck and spine we can reduce stress on your nervous system. This lowers the pain and tension that leads to headache discomfort.

The Three Most Common Types of Headaches


A migraine is a primary headache disorder that commonly affects people between the ages of 35 and 45, but anyone can suffer from one.

  • Women are twice as likely to experience migraines.
  • Reoccurring attacks could last a lifetime.

TTH, Tension-Type Headaches

This is the most common primary headache disorder. The cause may be stress-related or associated with musculoskeletal problems in the neck.

  • Described as pressure or tightness, often like a band around the head, sometimes spreading into or from the neck and shoulders.
  • Episodic TTH attacks can last for several days or just a few hours.
  • Chronic TTH can be much more disabling than an episodic TTH.

Cluster Headache (CH)

CH is characterized by recurring headaches, often up to several times a day. Usually brief but causing severe pain in or around one eye.

  • CH affects six times more men than women.
  • Most people with CH are in their 20s or older.
  • CH can take chronic forms.

Other Headache Causes are:

  •  Sinus Inflammation
  • Hypertension
  • Neck Trauma
  • Hormone Imbalance
  • Medication-overuse
  • Too Much Caffeine
  • Over-Exertion

Headaches and Multiple Sclerosis: Understanding the Connection

MS can cause nerves to become inflamed and develop scar tissue that slows messages between the brain and the rest of the body. Headaches, especially cluster headaches, often result from this.

A doctor will typically treat MS patients with pain medication. But all too often, chronic headaches can persist. Patients with MS symptoms who receive chiropractic care frequently comment on improvements with their headache pain, mobility, tiredness levels, endurance, muscular control, and overall well-being following adjustments.
