What Causes Headaches?

Headaches occur when pain-sensitive structures in the brain and head are flooded with signals. While the exact cause of headaches has yet to be clearly identified, headaches can be triggered by a wide variety of factors. The most common causes of headaches often include stress, hormonal imbalances, loud noise, glare, anxiety, certain foods, alcohol use, skipping meals, not drinking enough water, poor posture, spinal misalignment, genetic predisposition, lack of sleep, or other physical factors. Because the causes of headaches can be very unique for each patient, our team at Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic will begin with a thorough examination and interview about the frequency and suspected triggers for your headaches. This allows us to tailor your treatment to target the root causes of your headaches.

Then, using targeted techniques, we will adjust your spine to alleviate stress and tension.
