The Many Types of Headaches

There are several types of headaches, such as a cervicogenic headache, which comes from the neck, or a tension headache, which is felt by most people during their lifetime. You’ve likely also heard of migraine headaches. If you’ve had one before, then you know how severe a migraine can be.

No matter which type of headache you may be experiencing, it’s vital that you understand the source of your pain. Once you know why it’s occurring, you can find the solution that works to address your problem.

Different Headaches, Different Pains

Your headache can feel differently based on the type you’re experiencing and where it is located. If it’s at the back of the head, it’s often described as a “tight band.” If you have localised pain at the base of the neck, it likely travels up through the rest of your head.

There are several factors in your lifestyle that can cause the onset of a headache or worsen your headache. These include long periods of sitting at a computer, which creates an excessive load on the back of your neck and causes headaches. If you have poor posture, your head is stuck in a forward position, which will also result in discomfort.

Migraines are a more complex form of headache. They can worsen from bright lights, dehydration, excessive stress or a heavy workload. You’ll likely feel sensitive to many types of stimulation when you’re experiencing a migraine.

What Chiropractic Care May Do for You

If you’re suffering from headaches, chiropractic care may offer the help you’ve been looking for. When a joint is stuck in an incorrect position, it may cause the symptoms associated with headaches and migraines. A stuck joint results in inflammation and muscle spasm. By addressing the fixated joint, you may experience a relief of pain, inflammation and spasm.

How to Get Started

The first step in becoming a new patient is to book in for an evaluation with one of our chiropractors. At your first appointment, you’ll go through a comprehensive physical examination and discuss your health history. Once completed, your chiropractor can give you the adjustment that is right for your needs. We may adjust more than one area since the rest of your body can be compensating for the injury that has caused your headaches and migraines.

You’ll receive individual-specific recommendations about your lifestyle. This may include ergonomic advice or a discussion of your sleeping habits. All the information you receive is designed to help you heal quicker and return to your normal function.
