There are many reasons for headaches. These can be caused by drugs or the reactions of them, joint dysfunction, neck muscle strain and tightness, a low level of blood sugar and a high degree of blood pressure. The most common reason is stress, fatigue, and dehydration.
Most of the migraines that you’ll meet come not from the brain itself, but from your neck. How many? Researchers suspect about 80% of them, which means if you have a problem with the curve of your spine, or the state of your nerves that stem from your spinal cord, you may have a problem with headaches.
There are different kinds of headaches. These are tension headaches, known clinically as carcinogenic headaches; then there are migraines and cluster headaches.
These can be caused by physical conditions, wakefulness and sleep patterns, out of body sensory stimulus, and of course, by stress, alcohol, the unnatural additives in processed food and interestingly, components in old cheese, salty snacks and, in women, changes in hormones such as estrogen. 25 million Americans get migraines, about 75% of these people are female.
A migraine is a debilitating experience, which includes not just a powerful headache, but a host of side effects such as light and sound sensitivity, tingling and blind spots. These may be genetic, as they sometimes run in the family and taper off with age.
They’re caused by a curtailed flow of blood in the brain, followed by a dilation of the blood vessels. The constriction is the beginning of the pain, as the pressure builds up. This is something like bending a garden hose in half and then bending it back to normal after the water pressure has built; it shoots water. And in your head, the vessels shoot blood, which creates the pain of a migraine.
Because a migraine is caused by an unknown menu of issues, such as diet and lifestyle, making changes in these areas can decrease the chance that migraines will strike. Your College Park Chiropractor is adept at helping patients undergo these kinds of natural changes.
If your pain is accompanied by a throbbing sensation in your head, it’s called a vascular headache. It stems from the opening and closing off of blood vessels in your brain. If, however, it arises from the stem – namely tightness in your neck, then your chiropractor can directly help to eradicate a headache at its source.
The Chiropractors at AICA College Park are trained to handle the pain of a tension headache, which is caused more by your cervical spine than by your brain itself. Certain Chiropractic techniques are known to have an effect on headaches. The problems that you experience may be caused by the pressure against nerves in your neck. Realigning this area of your spine can relieve the blood flow and take the strain of nerves that are giving you the pain.
This can also be caused by stress, an injury or damaged soft tissue. Here we can offer both Chiropractic treatment and physical therapy, which will help to ease the best range of your neck and the balance between your cervical spine and your brain that will reduce or eradicate the onset of headaches.
