Headaches are a reality that affect 9 out of 10 Americans, and a comprehensive U.S. Study reported that 10 million Americans suffer from moderate to severe disability from various forms of headaches. There are many contributing factors of headaches, but headaches are in no way normal.
MIGRAINES: Migraines affect about 10% of the population most being women. These headaches are caused by inflammation of arteries and blood vessels that surround the brain, squeezing until the brain hurts. Headaches of this type can be very debilitating, causing pain that lasts anywhere from a couple hours to several days. Migraines can also cause different autonomic responses, such as: Auras, nausea/ vomiting, and heightened sensitivity to light and sound.
SINUS: Your sinuses are air-filled cavities in the skull, if they are unable to drain properly they become inflamed. When your sinuses become inflamed this causes painful pressure in your head and symptoms of sneezing, wheezing, watery eyes, runny nose, etcetera.
TENSION: Tension headaches are the most common type of headache and come from inflamed soft tissue in the head and neck. These headaches can vary in intensity, anywhere from migraine like to mildly irritating.
HOW TO DEAL: Many people pop an Ibuprofen and call it a day, or lie down with a cold compress. For those with the more intense headaches these methods are not strong enough and they seek more invasive therapies like cortizone injections, muscle relaxers, and tranquilizers. Though contrary to popular opinion, headaches are not a result of an Aspirin shortage. There is a better way to fight headaches.
HOW CHIROPRACTIC CAN HELP:
Research has proven that spinal manipulation may be an effective treatment for tension headaches and the like. “A report released in 2001

A large contributing factor is poor posture which places a lot of pressure on the structure and nerves. When the spine gets realigned it takes the pressure off the nerves allowing muscles to relax. Though not all headaches are caused by spinal misalignment, it is a good idea to consult a chiropractor before treating. The chiropractor will conduct a thorough examination process that includes physical, neurological, chiropractic and orthopedic tests that will help reveal the nature of your condition. X-rays may be necessary. If the chiropractor finds that it is a condition that they can help, they will put together a custom treatment plan for you, and if it is something they cannot help you with they will make the necessary referrals.
Notes from the Massage Therapist: Massage therapy and Chiropractic work well together and can help a person get the most out of their care. Massage can help most headaches by relaxing the neck, shoulders, upper back and even face muscles. Tension headaches are some of the easiest headaches for a massage therapist to address. Sinus headaches can help be relieved with facial massage opening those sinus cavities and therefore allowing them to drain. I can also show you a few techniques and stretches that you can do for self-care.
