This Common Cause of Headaches Might Surprise You

Headaches are a very common complaint that many Americans suffer from. Some people only get them periodically while others suffer from daily headaches.  They can be labeled as tension headaches, migraine headaches, cluster headaches, stress headaches, etc… but almost all headaches have 1 common cause.

Joints in the neck being out of alignment.

That’s right. Simple misalignment of bones in the neck. The reason this very common and easily corrected condition is the #1 cause of headaches is that when a bone is out of place in the neck it creates two problems.

1) It puts extra strain on neck muscles which causes the muscles to become tight and achy. This causes tension headaches, stress headaches and can worsen migraine headaches.

2) It puts stress on the nerves exiting the neck. This flares up migraine headaches and slows the healing of the muscles in the neck affected by bones being out of alignment.

As you can see a bone in the neck being misaligned creates stress in the neck that leads to all the major types of headaches.  If you suffer from regular headaches chiropractic care can very likely fix your problem.
