Many people believe that headaches are caused by stress. While stress may be a factor, the cause may be a problem in the neck. It has been estimated that 80% of all headaches originate from the neck. With a typical cervicogenic (neck origin) headache, a person may feel pain at the base of the skull, temples, forehead or top of the head. Chiropractic can help eliminate the cause of your headaches by gently correcting misalignments of vertabrae rather than offering a temporary relief from the symptoms.
