Chiropractic Care Helping Headaches
By Randi Morse
Headaches can be extremely frustrating to deal with. They are one of those conditions that can manifest in a variety of different ways. Some headaches are mild and simply frustrating to deal with while others are so debilitating it can be difficult to even get out of bed. Some headaches come on slowly, giving you plenty of time to beat it back before it becomes excruciatingly painful. Other headaches come on rapidly with no warning, giving you no chance to avoid the pain. There are many different types of headaches, and some headaches, especially those that are recurring, can be helped with regular chiropractic visits.
I am prone to migraines and for many years my husband was sympathetic, but it wasn't until he got a migraine of his own that he understood how overwhelming and painful a migraine can be. Migraines are generally described as a recurring headache that can last up to three days. In general, the pain from a migraine is usually on one side of the head, not both, and typically creates a pulsating pain. It is not uncommon for someone suffering from a migraine to deal with light sensitivity and nausea. There are even some migraine sufferers who have a neurological symptom that is called an aura, which is a visual disturbance that they experience right before their migraine starts.
Tension headaches are much more commonly found than migraine headaches. Tension headaches occur most often when someone is going through a great deal of stress. people who have a tension headache may feel a tightening throughout their entire head and the pain can last anywhere from 30 minutes to a week. People with tension headaches might have some light or sound sensitivity but generally those suffering with tension headaches don't experience nausea.
When you deal with recurring headaches, your entire life can be turned upside down. Chiropractic care may be the perfect solution to help alleviate your headaches.
