Introduction to Headaches
Put simply, doctors characterize headache as pain that emerges in your upper neck or head, stemming from tissues around the brain or skull. Your brain itself does not have nerve endings that signal pain, so pain isn’t felt directly in brain tissue. Pain is felt when nerves and tissues become inflamed or irritated in this region.
You shouldn’t dismiss headaches because they could be a sign of a medical issue that a healthcare professional would need to evaluate. At the very least, they tend to diminish your quality of life.
Types of Headaches
You may experience any of a range of headache types, including:
- Tension headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Migraine headaches
- Sports headaches
- Thunderclap headache
The team at Weiss Chiropractic and Regenerative Wellness sees patients coming in with all types of headaches and we are prepared to provide you with the headache treatment most appropriate for your particular condition.
Common Causes of Headaches
No matter what level of pain you’re experiencing or the duration of its effect, you’ll want to know what might be the cause of your headache.
In cases of migraine headaches, this pain results from irritated or inflamed tissues around the brain. When people become ill and infected, they can have a headache as one of the symptoms.
Dehydration is often accompanied by a headache. People sometimes first realize this after they have been drinking alcohol that caused them to get too dehydrated.
Tension is often the prime culprit for people getting headaches on a regular basis. That’s good to know because when you learn how to relax, you can start to manage the situation much more effectively.
For some individuals, certain foods can trigger a headache, as can reactions to new prescription medication. Anyone who abuses drugs or who is undergoing withdrawal from addictive drugs can wind up experiencing headaches too.
Remember to discuss potential causes of headaches when you meet with your chiropractor.
Typical Symptoms of Headaches
Patients can experience headaches in a number of ways, but there are some symptoms that typically affect most, including:
Tension Headaches: You feel an ache, but you are still able to do normal activities despite the pain. Pain strikes randomly and not very often for the patient, but sometimes does happen on a daily basis. A feeling like you have a tight band of pressure around your head that becomes painful is a common symptom. For many, the pain is strongest over the eyebrows or at the temples
Cluster Headaches: The headaches appear in groups or clusters on a daily basis, for about 7 days or more, punctuated by long stretches of time when you have zero headaches. This kind of headache pattern often runs in families, indicating it’s in the genes.
Secondary Headaches: This kind of head pain is associated with a medical issue, such as meningitis or a brain tumor.
Using Chiropractic Adjustments to Treat Headaches
Your chiropractor can treat headaches by performing a series of gentle spinal manipulations. This has the effect of diminishing inflammation. The reduction of stress from these manipulations also soothes headaches. When treated with massage therapy, it’s easier for patients to cope with headache pain.
Perhaps best of all, relying on a chiropractor for help with headaches means you don’t have to use potentially addictive pain medications.
