It is estimated that more people complain of headaches than any other health condition. One in every six people, or 16% of the population suffer from headaches at least once a year. The most popular treatment is over the counter pain relievers or prescription medications. But there is an another option.

Chiropractic care is a highly sought-after alternative treatment for the debilitating effects of headache.

There are more than one type of headache. The most common type of headache is the tension headache. These are usually the result of abnormal posture, muscular tightness, joint stiffness and reduced range of motion, especially in the neck.

Migraines are the second most common type of headache. Sufferers of migraines are more likely to be female and it is suspected that there may be a hormonal cause for them. Sufferers often report that a particular food or drink sets them off.

Restoration of normal posture patterns is the key to treatment of headaches. Chiropractic treatment is aimed at reducing muscular tightness and restoring joint range of motion and removing or minimising causes of stress.
