Studies show that most people suffer from headaches. There are many types of headaches including migraine, tension headache, sinus headache or cluster headache. The majority of headaches are caused by muscle tension in the neck.
Activities such as sitting at a computer for long hours and poor posture may cause tension and/or misalignment of the spine. This may result in joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back or scalp. When this occurs, it may be felt as a headache.
Blocked or congested sinus passages may also cause headache. When sinus passages are open, mucus can move more freely reducing the cause of the headache. Chiropractic care may help to relieve sinus headache and may reduce the frequency of sinus infection, by opening the sinus passages. There are many causes of headache, so accurate diagnosis is important.
