Primary headaches – treatable by chiropractors – are usually caused by problems associated with trauma or poor posture, which can aggravate the tendons and muscles of your head and neck. A primary headache is not generally a symptom of an underlying disease.
The most common primary headaches are:
- Cluster headache
- Tension headache
Headaches can have all sorts of other causes that a chiropractor can also help you address including:
- Food allergies
- Environmental stimuli
- Excessive exercise
- Blood sugar changes
Your chiropractic treatment will focus on these as well as obvious or acute trauma. Chiropractic care is care for the whole person; a good chiropractor will look at all causes and help you to overcome that headache for good.
