Headaches and Chiropractic Care

Posted Mar 11 2010 6:33am
The most common type of headaches which account for nearly 90% of all headaches are known as tension headaches. These headaches are most commonly caused by subluxation of the upper neck and back, usually in combination with trigger points in those areas. When the upper neck vertebrae lose motion or are out of alignment, a small muscle called the rectus capitus posterior minor goes into spasm. The problem is that this muscle has a small tendon that attaches onto the thin, pain sensitive dura matter of the brain.
With correct chiropractic spinal adjustments, this pressure can be released and the headache can disappear. Many people have these headaches and just deal with them on a day to day basis… do not let this happen to you! Come get checked out at Gallatin Valley Chiropractic of Bozeman and get your free headache consultation, and we will let you know if we can help you with your headaches.
