Migraines and Headache

One of the most prevalent medical concerns is headaches. They might be indicators of stress, mental anguish, or worry, or they can be the result of physical conditions like high blood pressure. A headache can strike anywhere in the skull and is often classified by the location of the head where it occurs. For some, it affects the entire head, while for others, it affects both sides of the head and for still others, and it affects only one part of the head.

Primary and secondary headaches are the two types of headaches. When it comes to primary headaches, the pain isn’t caused by something else going on in the body, such as disease. However, with secondary headaches, the headache is usually an indication of an underlying problem.

Headaches are classified into several categories

Were you aware that there are over 150 distinct forms of headaches? Each type of headache has its own set of causes and symptoms, and knowing which one a patient is suffering from can help them figure out how to manage it.

Primary Headaches That Are Common

Migraines: Migraines are characterized by throbbing pain on one side of the brain. They can linger for days and induce light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting.

Cluster Headaches: Cluster headaches are characterized by a succession of strong scorching or piercing pains. They usually happen around or behind one eye or on one side of the face at a time. On the side of the face affected by the headache, you may have nasal congestion, tears, edema, redness, and perspiration.

Exertion Headaches: are often short-lived, lasting anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Exertion headaches develop immediately after severe physical exercise, such as jogging or weight lifting, when blood flow to the head is enhanced.

Secondary Headaches That Are Common

Secondary headaches develop as a result of, or as a sign of, another medical illness.

Hormonal Headaches: Women’s hormonal swings might result in headaches. These headaches are known as menstrual migraines because they are specifically linked to the menstrual cycle. These can happen before, during, or after the menstrual cycle, as well as during the ovulation process.

Seasonal Allergies: or other sinus-impairing disorders are the most common causes of headaches with pain localized in the sinus area and the front of the head.

Post-Traumatic Headaches: Post-traumatic headaches can occur as a result of any form of head or neck injury that causes blood vessels and nerves to be squeezed or destroyed. These headaches can mimic migraines or tension headaches, and they can linger for up to a year after the injury.

Caffeine-Induced Headaches: Caffeine alters the chemistry of the brain by changing blood flow. Caffeine withdrawal headaches can occur if you stop drinking it cold turkey or if you consume too much.

Chiropractic Treatment for Migraines and Headaches

Headaches are the third most common cause for individuals in the United States to seek chiropractic therapy. Chiropractors’ spinal manipulation helps persistent headache problems including migraines, according to research.

Patients who got chiropractic therapy for migraines once or twice a week for eight weeks showed a reduction in migraine symptoms, according to a study of 21 researches. Patients reported a decrease in the frequency and length of their migraines, as well as a decrease in the intensity and an overall improvement in their quality of life.

What Can a Chiropractor Do for You?

The function of chiropractic therapy in the treatment of headaches is actually pretty straightforward. Throbbing blood vessels are the physiological cause of the main headache disorders. Chiropractic adjustments stretch and correct the bones, joints, and body tissues that can compress nerves and blood cells, which is the basic practice of chiropractors.

These structures have an influence on the way blood arteries work when they are damaged or out of alignment. As a result, chiropractic treatment for headaches and migraines concentrates on the back, shoulder, neck, and head trigger points. The cervical spine, which consists of the bones that make up the neck and connect the base of the head to the spine, is where a chiropractor spends the majority of his or her time.

Dr Oni has changed my life for the better! I have been dealing with lower back pain since before my daughter was walking. She is now 21. I basically just got used to the pain and only complained when it leveled higher than 6.. I have been to various doctors and physical therapy and absolutely no one has been able to get my pain level under a 6! I was actually happy with a pain level of 6! Sad right! After only a few visits I can’t believe my pain level is at a 0. This is unbelievable! I love her! I would highly recommend her. The office is always clean and comfortable. The staff has been very helpful, professional and polite! I have told everyone who would listen about her. My family and coworkers can’t even believe I have no back pain. Don’t think about it anymore, THIS, SHE is what you want! Schedule your appointment for a awesome life change.
