Going to the Chiropractor can be a great way to help ease the pain of different kinds of head discomfort. Having head pain symptoms can truly make a great day a sour day. But what is causing your head pains? There are multiple things that can be causing head pain. Chances are, most can be soved with chiropractic care! Sport and Spine Rehab treats all the following conditions that affect the head:

Millions of people in the United States suffer from TMJ symptoms daily. TMJ disorders can be a difficult to suffer through and affect your quality of life.

Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint between the jaw or mandible and the skull. It is used every time we chew, talk, or even swallow. Its anatomy, as well as its movement, is very complex. There are significant functional relationships between the TMJ and cranio-cervical (head and neck) neuromuscular systems and these can often become dysfunctional (TMD). This dysfunction can cause pain in the jaw or face, popping or clicking during chewing, limitation of jaw movement or headaches. The muscles involved in TMD are frequently an untreated factor in patients with headaches that may have failed other forms of treatment.

Living life with Migraine headaches can make doing the smallest activity very difficult to do. Many people need to deal with Migraine headaches on a daily basis, making it difficult to go to work, play sports or just go out into public.

A migraine usually is a throbbing headache that occurs on one or both sides of the head. The headache typically is accompanied by nausea, vomiting or loss of appetite. Activity, bright light or loud noises can make the headache worse, so someone having a migraine often seeks out a cool, dark, quiet place.

A cervicogenic headache is a headache that originates from the neck. These headaches can make it difficult to do activities that involve turning your head and neck.

Cervicogenic headaches occur when neck joints and/or muscles are not functioning correctly. This can cause pain in the head from a variety of sources: Compression of nerves that innervate the head, referred pain into the head from the neck from tight muscles, referred pain into the head from joints in the neck that are not moving properly.
