Do You Struggle With Headaches Or Migraine Headaches?
Do You Feel Headaches and Migraine Headaches are Something You Just Have to Live With? You Don’t.
If you have headaches or migraines, you’re not alone. Nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea.
What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down? Pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? There is a better solution.
Chiropractors help thousands of individuals successfully reduce the symptoms of headaches by using safe and effective treatment methods and techniques. Chiropractic has such a huge success rate in the treatment of headaches because most headaches are soft tissue or nerve related. A spinal adjustment can help alleviate the pressure put on muscles, nerves and blood vessels, which will allow better function and diminish the symptoms of a headache.
What Kinds Of Headaches Are There?
More than 90 percent of headaches can be classified as tension-type, cervicogenic, migraine or cluster. By far, most people get tension-type headaches and get them frequently. They typically suffer mild to moderate pain, on both sides of the head, that is often described as tight, stiff, constricting – like having something wrapped around your head and pressing tightly.
Migraine Headaches are periodic severe, throbbing headaches that afflict far fewer people (and more women than men), usually hurt on one side of the head, can cause loss of appetite, nausea and even vomiting, and may involve a visual change called an aura.
Cervicogenic Headaches are a muskuloskeletal form of tension-type headache (which may also be related to migraines). Many times, cervicogenic headache goes undiagnosed as such due to the relative newness of this classification.
