Chiropractic care is one of the best treatments for headaches. The most common type of headache is called a tension headache. Most people experience this type of headache later in the day and at times note that the pain seems to come into their forehead area. The reason this happens is that there is a nerve that travels through a triangle of muscles (the sub occipital triangle) at the base of the skull and then around to the front side of the head. The chiropractic adjustment will allow these muscle to relax and stay relaxed which effectively eliminates the headache.
