Headaches are usually due to tightness in the neck and shoulders (cervicogenic). Headache pain (from neck tightness) can start at the base of the skull and radiate into the temples, eyes, and forehead. Overview of headaches is shown below.

Headache Triggers

Headaches have many causes, or “triggers.” These may include foods, environmental stimuli (noises, lights, stress, etc.) and/or behaviors (insomnia, excessive exercise, blood sugar changes, etc.). Some headaches are warning signals caused by physical problems. The majority of headaches are primary headaches – which include tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by a disease.


The greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck (cervicogenic). Today, Americans engage in more sedentary activities than in the past, and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture (such as sitting in front of a computer). This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache.

What Can a Doctor of Chiropractic Do?

Bay Colony Chiropractic may do one or more of the following if you suffer from a primary headache:

  • Perform spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on your system.
  • Offer advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercises and relaxation techniques. This advice should help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and upper back.

Bay Colony Chiropractic can help eliminate the cause of your headaches rather than offering a temporary relief from the symptoms
