Are your headaches coming from your neck?
Many of them are!

One of the most common causes of headaches is stiffness and tension in the muscles and joints of your neck. These are called cervicogenic headaches.

Research has demonstrated that chiropractic adjustments can not only have an immediate effect on these headaches but also has a long lasting effect.

Are you struggling with a cervicogenic headache?
Cervicogenic headaches are most commonly one-sided, but occasionally may be present on both sides of the head.

Pain often radiates from the base of your skull toward the top of your head and sometimes over your eyes. In rare instances, the pain may travel into your arm. These headache episodes may last from hours to days. The pain is continuous but fluctuating and is often described as "deep." You may also notice chronic neck tenderness and stiffness. 

Cervicogenic headache symptoms may be triggered or reproduced by awkward movements and postures.

The condition is more common in patients who have recently experienced trauma, especially a motor vehicle accident or an earlier concussion. The condition often affects middle-aged adults and is more common in women at a rate of four to one. Cervicogenic headaches are sometimes accompanied by poor posture, including a "slouched" or "forward head" posture.
