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 primary issues going on in the body or secondary, and some headaches are difficult to find the primary cause of them, but most of them tie into problems involving the nerves.
Common symptoms that accompany 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…
Chiropractic adjustments to the vertebrae in the neck help to promote nervous system function and alleviate headache symptoms
Headaches commonly occur when spinal bones in the neck do not support the head properly. This will reduce your ability to turn your head and affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head. A subluxation is when one or more of the spinal bones are misaligned into an abnormal position. This causes irritation to the nerve structure and interference in the flow of nerve energy throughout the body.
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 in misalignments will help to decrease or eliminate headaches! With chiropractic care, you get the natural approach for headache relief. Whether you suffer from tension headaches, migraine headaches, cluster headaches, stress headaches, anxiety related headaches, neck pain related headaches or cervico-genetic headaches, relief is possible.
