Most people encounter headaches on an occasional basis, but for some, they are chronic sources of pain. This is often debilitating, not only due to the pain itself, but its ability to interfere with life activities. If you often find yourself waylaid by headache pain, it’s time to visit our Boca Raton chiropractic clinic to find relief.
Chiropractors can help with almost all headaches, whether they are migraines, cluster headaches, or tension headaches. This is because headache pain is often caused by problems in the neck – a part that is highly responsive to chiropractic care. Irritated nerves in this area can easily transmit pain to the head. Other problems in the neck, such as muscle tension or irritation of the blood vessels, can also result in headache pain.
Most headaches are caused by problems related to how the head is supported on the neck. Whether the problem is the misalignment of the vertebrae in the neck or an imbalance of tension, the chiropractor has treatments that will help. Spinal realignment helps greatly for problems resulting from the way the bones of the upper spine are lined up. Therapeutic massage treatment and corrective exercises are excellent for releasing unwanted muscle tension and bringing pain relief. Often, therapies are combined for best results.
Tension headaches are the most common ones. They are caused by muscle tension that travels up into the head. This tension is typically caused by stress, especially if that stress has been present for a prolonged period.
Migraine headaches aren’t as common as the tension variety, but they are known for being worse. These headaches are unique because they can hurt enough to cause nausea, vomiting, and even an inability to get out of bed. They are commonly accompanied by hallmark symptoms like visual disturbances and an intolerance of light and sound.
These are just two of the types of headaches that are commonly mentioned. There are many less-common forms as well. The important thing is that any sort of head pain that isn’t from a direct injury is often referred to as a headache.
