The vast majority of headaches do not start in the head. Most headaches are a result of tight muscles and improperly working joints in the neck. The neck muscles get tight due mostly to poor posture and stress. Tight muscles lead to joint dysfunction and this will cause the headaches that are so common for many people.
The best way to minimize and ultimately eliminate these types of headaches is to maintain correct posture (don’t look down at your phone all day!) and to get regular massage and adjustments. The consistent bodywork will allow your body to function properly and prevent headaches from occurring. Call Marcum Chiropractic at 503-235-7130 to schedule a massage and adjustment to say goodbye to those annoying headaches!
