Neck Pain, Headaches & Migraines

Your head, which can weigh as much as a ten pin bowling ball, sits upon seven delicate cervical vertebrae and together with many other structures such as nerves, muscles, ligaments, discs and vessels, make up your neck. When any of those vertebrae lose their normal position and motion, sensitive nerves and blood vessels may become irritated, stretched or compressed. This may result in Neck Pain, stiffness, headaches and migraines.

Many factors such as: sporting injuries; trauma including car accidents; whiplash; birth trauma; previous surgery; sleep or bedding issues; dietary concerns or deficiencies; stress; incorrect posture or poor ergonomics may predispose you to getting neck pain or stiffness, tension headaches, and migraines. In light of so many factors that may play a part in causing these issues in one’s lifestyle, neck pain, migraines and headaches are amongst the third most common reason why people consult a chiropractor.

Many people find relief in neck pain, tension, migraines and headaches through regular chiropractic care and often go on to achieve greater levels of health.
