A headache occurs when the patient develops persistent pain in any part of the head. Several types of headaches can occur, though the most common types are migraines and tension headaches.
A migraine is a severe headache that usually affects only 1 side of the head. Depending on the severity and the patient’s access to treatment, a migraine may last for several hours or even days. Patients with a migraine often describe the pain as throbbing or pulsating. They may also experience other symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.
Researchers believe that migraines occur because of chemicals in the brain or interactions between the trigeminal nerve and the brainstem. Many people experience migraines only after encountering certain triggers, such as changes in the weather, hormonal changes, or emotional stress.
A tension headache is a headache that usually occurs because of stress. It may lead to a dull aching pain in the head, a feeling of tightness, and tenderness in the shoulders and scalp. Most patients with tension headaches feel the pain on both sides of the head.
The goal of headache treatment at Back to Health Chiropractic is to alleviate current headache pain, as well as to reduce the frequency and severity of future headaches. The doctors at this facility customize every treatment plan based on the patient’s specific symptoms, the results of the patient’s physical exam, and other factors.
