Headaches are defined as pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. It occurs as migraines, tension-type headaches or cluster headaches, which are all considered headaches but each have specific qualities in diagnosis.
Headaches can cause long-term damage mentally and physically, and can easily affect day-to-day life. About half of adults experience headaches at least every year, with tension headaches being the most prevalent.
Headaches Can Cause Debilitating Symptoms
Headaches are something that many people deal with, but it is not a necessary part of life. Headaches often result from traction to or irritation of the meninges and blood vessels. Blood vessel spasms, dilated blood vessels, inflammation or infection of meninges and muscular tension can also stimulate nociceptors and cause pain. These can be caused by other issues going on in the body, but most of them tie into problems involving the nervous system.
Symptoms of headaches are:
- Dull aching pain in head and muscle aches
- Pressure or pain in the front, top or sides of the head
- Chronic fatigue
- Irritability and disturbed concentration
- Sensitivity to light or noise
- and more…
Stop Your Headaches Without Medication
Headaches commonly occur when there is irritation or interference on the nerves that go to the head; this irritation or interference on the nerve is called subluxation. Subluxations reduce the ability of the nerves to function, leading to symptoms like not only headaches but much more as well.
Subluxations can often be the result of stress and bad posture, which is why many people who work at a desk suffer from them. By receiving the gentle and effective treatment of chiropractic care, you will have subluxations and stress removed from the spine. This decrease of stress will help to decrease or eliminate headaches!
