Headaches are the most commonly diagnosed condition in the United States with 70% of these caused by muscle tension. Other causes include sub-occipital muscle spasms from injury (whiplash), postural strain, and sleeping on a large pillow that forces flexion of the neck.
Migraine headaches are a common condition seen at the Ortman Clinic, and may respond well to chiropractic care. However, there are usually more complicated underlying issues causing migraine headaches. This may require other supportive measures of treatment such as diet alterations, nutritional support, or co-management with your medical doctor to achieve the most benefit.Back to Common Conditions
