Everyone understands the sensation of having a bad headache and how unpleasant of an experience a severe headache can be. For some people, headaches are not only extremely severe, sometimes to the point of being debilitating, but also extremely persistent; indeed, some people suffer disabling headaches or migraines on a daily or weekly basis.

Call us today to learn more about treatment options we offer for our patients with serious headaches and migraines.
There are a number of different things that can lead to headaches or migraines. While migraines are misunderstood, many recognize that there are certain triggers–such as bright lights or certain foods–that can set off a migraine. Some of the most common causes of headaches (and some migraine triggers, too) include:
The above list is not inclusive; it is a good idea to speak with a doctor if you are suffering from routine and serious headaches.
There are a number of different treatment options that may be useful in alleviating the discomfort caused by headaches – chiropractic care is just one of them. According to research cited by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), spinal manipulation has shown to be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.

If your headaches are a symptom of another injury, such as a sports injury, your chiropractor may recommend physical therapy as well.
As mentioned above, anyone who suffers from serious and persistent headaches or migraines knows how debilitating the condition can be and understands how critical finding effective relief is. When other treatment options fail or you don’t want to rely on the use of over-the-counter and prescription medications to treat your headaches and migraines, chiropractic care is a real solution. This type of treatment addresses the root cause of the problem rather than just treating the side effect. With treatment, you could be well on your way to headache-free living!
