Types of Headaches and How a Chiropractor Can Help Ease Your Pain
Tension Headaches – Probably the most common type of headache, tension headaches are typically caused by poor posture, which tends to cause stress on the spine as well as the muscles that surround the neck and upper back area. When the vertebra in the back loses correct positioning, the muscle spasms that occur are what makes your neck hurt. Tension headaches can also happen as the result of whiplash from a car accident.
Migraine Headaches – The most painful of all headaches, migraines include intense pain which is often paired with nausea and sensitivity to light and noise. Migraine headaches occur when blood vessels in the brain constrict, then immediately dilate. It is this rapid increase in blood pressure that leads to the awful pain that migraines cause.
Cluster Headaches – Cluster headaches are the ones you feel behind your eyes. These painful headaches typically occur at night and are like a migraine, without the intensity. Cluster headaches typically happen one to four times per day over several days in clusters, which is how they got their name.
