How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Your Headaches
Everyone gets headaches, right? After all, most of us are taught that they are normal, right? Some of us get dull headaches, some throbbing. One headache may be on one side, while others may make us sensitive to light, and sounds.
Common? Absolutely. But are they normal? Not at all.
The 3 most typical classes of headaches are:
Caused by muscle tension within the head, neck or shoulders. Tension headaches can be a result of emotional stress. These types of headaches will become constant once tightened muscles fail to relax.
Migraines can be triggered by certain types of food, wine, weather, smoke, stress, or hormonal changes. These types of headaches tend to be more frequent in women, rather than men.
Cervicogenic headaches can be caused by whiplash, such as a car accident, poor posture or structural changes to the neck and shoulders. These types of headaches form pain behind your eyes or in your forehead.
Most of us reach for some type of pain reliever once a headache takes over. Some migraine headache sufferers take daily medications designed prevent these headaches from even starting in the first place. However these medications can manufacture some dangerous and unwanted effects.
