Understanding Headaches

Throbbing pain. A dull ache. Sudden pain or even that unexpected “brain freeze” after indulging in ice cream. Pain experienced on the top of the head. Headaches come in various forms and intensities, making them one of the most common pain conditions experienced globally. These debilitating sensations often disrupt our daily lives, ranging from mildly uncomfortable to severely incapacitating.

Headaches frequently lead to absenteeism from school or work. Those who suffer from frequent headaches may also notice adverse effects on their mental health, including increased anxiety and depression.

Types of Headaches

Headaches are not a one-size-fits-all ailment; there are more than 150 different types, broadly categorized into two main groups:

Primary Headaches

These types of headaches are not caused by any underlying medical condition. The primary headache category includes:

  • Cluster Headaches: These are excruciating headaches that typically occur in cycles or clusters.
  • Migraines: Migraines are intense, often accompanied by severe throbbing pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.
  • New Daily Persistent Headaches (NDPH): NDPH is characterized by sudden and persistent headache onset, which can be debilitating.
  • Tension Headaches: These are the most common type of primary headache, often caused by muscle tension and stress.

Secondary Headaches

Secondary headaches are a result of an underlying medical issue, which may include:

  • Head Injury: Traumatic head injuries can lead to persistent headaches.
  • High Blood Pressure (Hypertension): Elevated blood pressure can trigger headaches.
  • Infection: Certain infections can cause severe headaches.
  • Medication Overuse: Overusing pain medications can paradoxically result in more headaches.
  • Sinus Congestion: Sinusitis can lead to painful sinus headaches.
  • Trauma: Physical injuries and trauma can cause secondary headaches.
  • Tumor: In some cases, headaches may be a symptom of an underlying tumor.

Chiropractic Care for Headache Relief

At Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center, we offer a holistic approach to relieving headaches, especially those related to tension and neck issues. Chiropractic adjustments may be an effective care option for individuals experiencing:

Tension Headaches: These headaches often originate from muscle tension and stress. Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate tension and restore proper spinal alignment, reducing the frequency and intensity of tension headaches.

Headaches with Neck Involvement: Headaches that begin in the neck, known as cervicogenic headaches, can benefit from chiropractic care. By addressing misalignments or subluxations in the cervical spine, our chiropractors can provide relief and improved overall neck function.

Our skilled chiropractors employ a variety of techniques tailored to your specific needs. Through careful assessment and personalized treatment plans, we aim to reduce your headache frequency and intensity, enhancing your overall well-being.
