What Causes Headaches?

There are different types of headaches and different causes of those headaches. Let's take a look at a few different types to better understand the causes and treatment options.

Tension Headaches

One of the most common types of headaches is tension headaches. These types of headaches are caused by tension and stress. This tension and stress are stored in the muscles of the neck, back, and shoulders. This tension can then translate through the neck and into the head.

Migraines

Migraine headaches are a far more serious condition than tension headaches. Migraines are technically considered a neurological disorder that requires more specific treatments than tension headaches.

Our Chiropractor Can Help

Chiropractic care can be very beneficial in the treatment of headaches. The foundational treatment we provide is spinal adjustment. When the spine is misaligned, it can cause inflammation in the spinal column. This can then cause tension in the surrounding tissues. In addition, misalignment of the spine can also restrict blood and oxygen flow throughout the spinal column. This restriction can affect the blood flow to the brain, causing headaches.

Our West Hartford chiropractors can help those suffering from headaches by providing nutritional counseling as well as lifestyle counseling. There are many dietary choices that can trigger headaches. Certain exercises and stretches and treatments like chiropractic adjustments can also help improve blood flow and reduce inflammation. All of these things can work together to reduce the intensity and frequency of headaches.

Other benefits of chiropractic treatment can also include stress reduction and improvement of overall health and wellness. Chiropractic treatment can also be helpful in dealing with other pain issues as well. If you have chronic pain disorders such as Fibromyalgia, you can find drug free pain management solutions with chiropractic care. Through our services, you can achieve optimum wellness and find great alternative medical treatment for many health problems.
