Headache Information and Chiropractic Care

According to the American Chiropractic Association, nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea.

Ninety-five percent of headaches are primary headaches, such as tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease. The headache itself is the primary concern.

“The greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck,” says Dr. George B. McClelland, a doctor of chiropractic from Christiansburg, VA. “Today, Americans engage in more sedentary activities than they used to, and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture. This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache.”

At Karras Chiropractic, we have many patients who have suffered from workplace injury. Spending hours in one fixed position or posture, such as in front of a computer or on a sewing machine, can lead to workplace injury even in a sedentary office environment. Headaches can be brought on by a variety of workplace stimuli, including extended exposure to fluorescent lighting and continued use of computer monitors.
