Neck Pain & Headaches Q & A

Ouzts-Tinney Chiropractic & Spinal Rehabilitation

What causes headaches and neck pain?

The reason for your pain depends on the headache you’re suffering from (a tension headache, a migraine, or a cluster headache).

Many “triggers” can cause your headache and neck pain. These triggers can vary from physical, hormonal, genetic, and environmental factors to emotional or neurological causes.

However, most headaches occur due to muscle tension in your neck.  

Most people spend hours sitting in front of a computer or at a desk each day, often hunched over with poor posture. Your bad posture can contribute to your headaches because it causes joint irritation and muscle tension in your neck, upper back, and even your scalp.

How can a chiropractor treat headaches and neck pain?

Rather than suppressing your pain with medication and drugs, chiropractic care helps solve the underlying cause of your problem.

First, Dr. Worley performs an exam to determine the cause of your pain. Then he performs chiropractic adjustments to improve your spinal function and alleviate the stress on your body, ultimately reducing and even eliminating your pain.

One treatment method is called the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique®: A system that treats back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

How does the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique work?

Dr. Worley uses a small, hand-held instrument, which delivers a gentle impulse force to your spine with the goal of restoring motion to specific points on your spine.

Because the instrument works quickly, your body’s muscles are less likely to tense in response. This lack of muscle resistance makes the treatment more effective. It also doesn’t add any unnecessary force to your spine, like twisting or popping your neck.

Patients often respond immediately to the treatment, noticing a reduction in their headaches, neck pain and muscle tenderness. Many also have a better range of motion in their neck.

If you or a loved one suffers from unrelenting headaches or neck pain, call Dr. Worley or schedule an appointment to see if he and his staff at Ouzts-Tinney Chiropractic & Spinal Rehabilitation can help.
