Headaches

There are a variety of headaches ranging from mild to severe. These include:

  • Tension headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Sinus headaches
  • Hormone headaches
  • Acute headaches

Tension headaches are very common and are usually caused by tension in muscles and stress. Cluster headaches are the most severe you can get and are more intense than migraines. Sinus headaches are caused by pressure and discomfort in the sinus area. These are located behind the eye. 

Hormone headaches affect women who are experiencing changes in their hormones. Acute headaches happen with no warning, but only last for a short amount of time.

Migraines

Migraines are intense types of headaches. They can last for several hours or days. They can be caused by illness, stress, hormonal changes in women, and eating and drinking certain foods and drink. Sensitivity to light and sound, changes in the nervous system, nausea are some of the symptoms that occur while a person is having a migraine. 

Treatment for Migraines and Headaches

Headaches and migraines can become so severe that they impact work and daily life. When this happens, its time to see a chiropractor who can help. The treatment will vary, based on what type of headache you have. 

At your first appointment, tell your chiropractor as many symptoms as you can, as well as surround circumstances, such as what you were doing before the onset of your headache or migraine. This can determine the type of treatment you will get at our office.

Neck and spinal adjustments can help reduce pain and pressure in the head. These adjustments can reduce pressure and other symptoms of a tension or stress headache. Decompression therapy can also help if a herniated disc in your spine causes a headache due to nerve pressure from the disc.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our migraine and headache treatments. We hope to help you soon.
