The term headache is not a diagnosis but a symptom of an underlying cause. Of course many different conditions can cause headache, some (very few) are serious, most are just seriously painful. The cause of a headache must be identified in order to effectively treat the symptoms.
Commonly people experience one of two forms of headache; these are caused either by irritated joints, muscle spasm and nerve irritation in the neck (known as Cervicogenic headaches) or problems in the nervous system (known as migraine and tension headache). In addition to severe pain migraine may also cause nausea, sickness, dizziness, changes to vision (or smell) as well as hypersensitivity to light and noise.
Chiropractic treatment has been shown to produce favourable results when treating those suffering from both migraines and cervicogenic headaches.
