Why Do YOU Get Headaches?

Unless you know the specific trigger and what to do to avoid them recurring, you most likely could benefit from chiropractic care. Virtually no-one gets a headache for lack of aspirin or acetaminophen so why would the adding of such things be the right solution to stopping them? That is not to say the drugs aren’t great if you need to mask the pain. They can work wonders but beware of the side effects involved and the possibility you are robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Why not get checked and see if there is a structural or nutritional cause behind many of your headaches that can be addressed naturally.

Chronic Headache Relief

Headaches are an all too often occurrence for millions of people. Tension headaches are the most common type of headache. They can be caused by a number of different triggers including stress and hormones. Women are three times more likely than men to suffer from painful Migraine headaches. Men are more likely to suffer from the less common but equally painful Cluster headaches. Most people find relief from over the counter medication but for those who suffer from Chronic Headache pain or prefer a natural solution, Chiropractic Care at Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness& and Wellness can be of great help.

Tension Headaches

Tension headaches may affect up to 75% of headache sufferers. They can be triggered by many different contributing factors including Bad Posture, TMJ, Stress, Fatigue, High Blood Pressure, Low Blood Sugar, Hormones, Foods, Smells, Weather Changes and Fatigue.

One of the biggest offenders is misalignment in the neck or upper spine. This can cause muscle spasms (small enough you may not notice them) at the base of the skull. Tension headaches can happen in the connecting tissues that surround the brain that are pain sensitive. Correcting the misalignment can offer relief from headache pain.

Tension in muscles of the upper back and neck can cause referred pain in other areas. Pain within these muscles may cause pain in the jaw, temple, neck and back of the head.

Migraine Headaches

The overwhelming majority of Migraine headache sufferers are women. This suggests that there could be a hormonal component to this type of headache that is associated with nausea, light sensitivity and intense, throbbing pain. Migraine headaches tend to run in families.

Many people with Chronic Migraines experience a visual aura just before the onset of pain. They are often described as flashing lights or a dreamlike feeling that precedes a migraine headache.

A migraine headache is caused by restricted blood vessels in the brain that become dilated. The increased blood pressure in the head results in the pounding sensation that is common with this type of headache. There are many known triggers that can bring on migraine pain. Common triggers include Stress, Fatigue, Foods, Smells, Flashing Lights, Hormone Changes and Weather Patterns.

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches cause severe pain that is often felt behind one eye. They tend to be short in duration but arrive in clusters in one day and can continue a pattern for several days. This type of headache tends to happen at night and is more common in men than women. Cluster headaches are like migraines in that they can be related to dilating blood vessels in your brain.

Chiropractic Solution For Headaches

Chiropractic Adjustments can be very effective for treating headache pain. Many patients feel almost immediate relief after receiving chiropractic care. This is especially true for Tension Headaches that originate with misalignment in the neck or upper back. A neck and spine that are properly aligned will reduce stress on joints and help to relieve and prevent headaches.
