Headaches can be present for a variety of reasons. Most importantly, it is necessary to rule out any serious disease that could be causing these headaches; fortunately this is rarely the case. Common causes of chronic headaches include hormonal imbalances, food sensitivities, hypoglycemia, stress, neck tension and spinal subluxation. Most often headaches are caused from stress and poor eating habits leading to low blood sugar, when this occurs the body releases stress hormones which then cause the neck muscles to “tense up”. In this scenario effective treatment includes neck massage and adjustments while concurrently changing the diet to address individual needs.
