Many people believe that headaches are caused by loud noise, being tired, or being stressed. While these are all factors that can lead to headaches, the direct cause is tightness in the neck and shoulders. The tightness can cause misalignments in the vertebrae of your neck, resulting in pain. 80% of all headaches originate from the neck. With a typical cervicogenic (neck organ) headache, a person usually feels pain starting at the base of the skull which radiates into the temples, eyeballs, and forehead. Therapies and treatments can aid in releasing tension, realigning vertebrae, removing triggers, and promoting healing. We can eliminate the cause of your headaches rather than offering temporary relief from the symptoms. At Lighthouse Medical Center, we implement an integrative approach to your health, determining the root cause and supporting the findings with the correct treatments and maintenance for you.
