Headache Facts You Need to Know

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 1:

Medical knowledge about the cause of your headache is very, very limited.  The main tool a medical doctor uses to “diagnose” your headache is nothing more than your description of it.

Don’t take my word for it – check out “The international classification of headache disorders, 2nd Edition”.

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 2:

If you’re like many headache sufferers, your headache patterns combine features of more than one type, or shift over time from one type to another.  In other words, you may experience muscle tension headaches that change to migraines or daily chronic headache.

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 3:

Headache drugs often backfire, causing you even worse “rebound” pain.

Fortunately, There’s Good News

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 4:

There’s a common link shared by most people with headaches.

Researchers have shown that many people with headaches have problems with:

  • Stiff joints in the neck and upper back
  • Muscle knots in the neck muscles
  • Poor posture and control over movement

These are issues that chiropractors have developed a sophisticated ability to evaluate and treat.

HEADACHE FACT NUMBER 5:

Chiropractic manual therapy, using a combination of methods, is one of the best researched, most effective ways to help your headache pain.
