Headaches can be a terrible burden for those who suffer them regularly or on an ongoing basis. They should never be taken lightly, because headaches can be the first sign of more serious health problems from a wide variety of sources.
Chiropractors are trained to assess, diagnose propose and deliver treatment and management of headaches when they come from musculo-skeletal sources.
Studies have shown that neck problems and jaw problems can be significant contributors to the onset of headaches (including migraines and tension headaches), and that chiropractors are well positioned to assist headache sufferers.
If you have a headache - especially if it is undiagnosed or new, it is important to know what is happening, and advisable to seek assistance sooner rather than later. Only a small number of headaches represent something more serious, but sometimes time is of the essence, so be sure to follow it up. If you feel severely unwell with a headache, you should contact your medical practitioner ASAP or emergency services if necessary.
