Almost everyone has had a headache. Headaches are defined as any pain in the head, neck or face, however chronic headache sufferers will tell you, they just aren’t that simple. Headaches can vary from annoying to debilitating depending on the type of headache, and the causes. Diagnosis can be frustrating, as there are so many causes for headaches, and occasionally no clear cut cause is ever found.
Many people have headaches following trauma, and others have headaches that seem to occur for no reason. Due to the complex nature of headaches, it is important to determine where the headaches are coming from. Occasionally the headaches occur from tight muscles in the surrounding area like the neck and jaw, and sometimes there is a neurological reason.
The Doctors of Chiropractic at Scott Family Health can help you determine what is causing your headaches, and lead you in the right direction.
Treatment may vary depending on diagnosis. Treatment may include a chiropractic adjustment, acupuncture or massage therapy, and possibly physical therapy. X-rays, other diagnostic tests or a referral to an outside provider may be necessary to determine the best care for your condition.
