Published on May 17, 2016Chiropractic and Headaches: What’s the Connection?
Though thousands of different triggers can cause headaches, one thing is certain—they happen for a reason. A headache is the body’s way of telling you something isn’t right. But what you may not know is that what’s causing the headache doesn’t always originate in or near the area where you feel pain.
When it comes to your body, everything is connected. For example, a wrist problem can actually be a spinal complication, whereas elbow trouble can actually result from a shoulder issue.
Of course, headaches can also be directly related to the spine, being caused by a number of ailments including:
- Compensation for low back problems
- Poor posture
- Muscle spasms
