Most people will suffer a headache in their lives with pain that can range anywhere from uncomfortable and irritating, to severe and unbearable. This discomfort can be alleviated by over-the-counter pain medication for temporary relief, but it won’t solve the underlying issue causing your headaches in the first place! Chiropractic care treatments can offer safe and effective options that will not just get rid of your headache pain temporarily but can treat the underlying problem so that the pain does not return.
With so many types of headaches, treatment options aren’t limited to a one-size-fits-all approach. Understanding the type of headache you’re experiencing can assist with recovery and treatment methods while diagnosing the headache can bring attention to lifestyle choices that may be influencing or worsening symptoms without you realizing it.
There are several different types of headaches, some of the most common being:
- Tension headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Sinus headaches
- Pregnancy headaches
- Stress headaches
While different headaches come with their own set of symptoms and discomforts, common causes for headaches include stress, poor posture, dehydration, whiplash/spinal injuries, environmental factors (light, noise), or poor sleep habits.
Some headaches may only need a simple change of habits, while others may need specifically targeted chiropractic adjustments to correct alignment, relieve pressure and tension, or improve spinal function.
