Headaches or cephalgia are extremely common and the causes are extremely varied.

Most who seek care for headaches have been examined by the family doctor and been self medicating for a while. There are many causes of headaches. While some are best treated by a medical doctor, those that do not respond to medical care and require a stready stream of painkillers to make life tolerable often respond excellently to chiropractic care.

Often, the causes of these headaches can be caused by joint problems either in the upper neck or jaw, which lead to sustained muscle spasm and pain.
