Did You Know...
Movement is actually a critical part of the healing process for many different types of headaches. Headaches fall into two main categories: primary or secondary.
Primary headaches have no official known cause, while secondary headaches are diagnosed as being caused by another physical issue in the body.
Take cervicogenic headaches for example. These headaches are actually referred pain from the neck, so they are considered secondary. Correcting the cause of the dysfunction in the neck can be a very effective way to treat these headaches.
Why It Matters
No doubt you made a key connection from that example. Chiropractic care, from actual adjustments to lifestyle adjustments, can be an effective tool for reducing the frequency, intensity, and duration of many common headaches.
