Minneapolis MN Chiropractic for Headaches

If you are suffering from headaches then Minneapolis MN chiropractic care may be the solution you are looking for! There are many different types of headaches and the cause of headaches can vary. These include:

  • Cervical Origin Headaches – These are when you have a headache that comes from the neck and are caused by subluxations, muscles spasms, and nerve irritation.
  • Tension Headaches – These headaches come primarily from irritated or inflamed muscles in the head and neck.
  • Migraine Headaches – These headaches are caused by a complex interaction in the nervous and hormonal systems and can cause disabling pain.
  • Cluster Headaches – These headaches come in groups. Pain generally lasts 30-45 minutes then ceases only to return a little while later. Most people experience up to 4 headaches during a cluster period.
  • Organic Headaches – This is a broad category that includes headaches such as; sinus, hangover, allergy, caffeine withdrawal, pregnancy, hypertension, TMJ dysfunction, reading, and low blood sugar.
  • Rebound Headaches – These headaches are caused by an overuse of medication.

Dr. Sonny Saggar, the Medical Director at St. Louis Urgent Care recently answered these two questions:

What Causes Headaches?

Headache pain results from signals interacting between the brain, blood vessels, and surrounding nerves. During a headache, specific nerves of the blood vessels and head muscles are activated and send pain signals to the brain. It’s not clear why these signals are activated in the first place.

As you can see, there are many different types and causes of headaches but as with every function of our bodies, the central nervous system is at its core. When suffering from headaches most people tend to take medication, whether it’s aspirin, Tylenol™, or another prescription medication. Medication can treat the pain of headaches, but it doesn’t treat the cause of headaches. A Minneapolis MN chiropractor can help to treat the cause of headaches to help eliminate pain and prevent it from returning. Chiropractic is a natural approach that keeps the body properly aligned. Misalignments can cause nerve damage, inflame tissues, cause muscles to tighten and knot, and ultimately weaken the body which can cause headaches. With spinal manipulations, massage, and even nutritional and exercise advice Minneapolis MN chiropractic care can help solve your headaches problems.
