What's the Connection: Chiropractic and Headaches

There are thousands of different triggers that can result in headaches, and one thing is true for all headaches — they happen for a reason. A headache is your body’s way of communicating to you that something isn’t right. The problem is, you don’t always know what it is that’s causing the headache, particularly because the cause of your headache doesn’t always come from or near the area where you are feeling the pain.

Everything in our bodies is connected. For example, a problem in your wrist could actually be a complication in the spine, and issues with the elbow could be coming from a shoulder problem.

Unsurprisingly, headaches can also be related to the spine, with a number of possible causes, including:

  •          Misalignment
  •          Compensation for low back problems
  •          Muscle spasms
  •          Poor posture
