Headaches are one of the most common symptoms that present at our office. There are several categories of headaches; tension headaches; cluster headaches; migraines; temporal & occipital headaches; what is common to most headaches is that the source of the symptoms often come from the cervical (neck) spine and it's affect on the nervous system. Treat the source and the symptoms will subside. At Hycroft Chiropractic & Massage we believe Chiropractic care can help relieve spinal misalignment that can be the cause of the headaches you experience.
Oh my aching head! Are you aware that nearly everyone has experienced a headache at some point in their lifetime? Headaches are one of the most common pain-related healthcare problems. The most common types of headaches usually are not serious but may occur again and again.
TYPES OF HEADACHES
Tension headaches are the most common type of headache usually caused by stress or emotional distress. Tension headaches occur when the muscles in your shoulders, neck, head and jaw tense up. This tension creates faulty spinal mechanics. Tension headaches can occur if you are dehydrated, under emotionally stress, over worked, or consuming excessive amounts of alcohol or caffeine.
Cluster headaches are one of the most painful type of headaches. They occur as a series of short but extremely painful headaches in a cyclical patterns or clusters. You tend to get them at the same time each year.
Migraine headaches are throbbing headaches that usually last for hours to days. They usually occur on one side of your head and may cause nausea and vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.
Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning different ways to relax, stretching and by pursuing chiropractic & massage therapy. Headaches have many causes, but serious causes of headaches are rare. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden or severe headache.
