It is estimated that one-third of American adults suffer from tension headaches, which are also commonly referred to as muscle-contracting headaches. This type of headache usually starts at the back and move forward until it encompasses the entire head. Tightness of the neck and scalp muscles is the culprit behind the pain. While nearly all tension headaches respond well to chiropractic treatment that serves to reduce tension, so-called cervicogenic headaches (emanating from the cervical/neck region) respond particularly well. This type of headache is usually characterized by neck and head pain on the same side caused by a source in the cervical spine. Manipulation by a chiropractor can target this source to reduce headache and neck pain.
