A significant amount of headaches are caused by tension in the muscles in and around the spine and up underneath the skull. Of course there are many other causes of headaches, but one of the most common types is the cervical genic headache. These are headaches caused by issues in the upper cervical spine, or neck driven tension. If a patient spends a lot of time in front of a computer, their neck muscles develop a chronic knot, and that is the number one trigger of many headaches. Chiropractic treatment can adjust the upper cervical spine, and then do soft tissue therapy releasing the knots and the headaches just disappear.
