Headaches

There are a few different types of headaches, and the best treatments vary.

  • Tension headaches: Stress is the cause of tension headaches. An over-the-counter pain medicine and rest can help with these headaches. Chiropractic treatment has also been found in tests to lower the degree and frequency of pain.
  • Sinus headaches: If you have a cold or a sinus infection, you may experience sinus headaches. The discomfort in your head, cheeks, and jaw may be caused by these headaches. A decongestant or over-the-counter sinus medicine is the best strategy to relieve a sinus headache. If you have a sinus infection, an antibiotic may be required to treat it.

Migraine Headaches

Migraine headaches are distinct from regular headaches because they are accompanied by extra symptoms. While experts are unsure what causes migraines, there are several variables that place a person at a higher risk. Women are more likely than men to suffer from migraines, according to research. Migraines can also be caused by hormonal changes. Women who are on birth control, pregnant, or on their menstruation are more likely to suffer from migraines. Hormone replacement therapy can also trigger migraines. There are two forms of migraine headaches that are commonly encountered.

Types of Migraines

Migraine Without Aura: The most prevalent type of migraine is this one. Migraines are a type of headache that is aggravated by sound, light, and strong odors. Nausea and vomiting are common side effects of migraine migraines. A stiff or sore neck affects some people.

Migraine With Aura: This sort of migraine isn’t as prevalent as the others. You’ll notice visual disturbances 30 minutes to an hour before the headache starts. Blind spots, vision loss in one or both eyes, and seeing flashing lights are all examples. This type of migraine might also result in hallucinations or speech difficulties. When the headache first starts, it feels like a migraine without the aura.

Migraine headaches can be treated with either oral or injection-based medicines. By re-aligning the body, a chiropractic adjustment can also assist to minimize the frequency of migraine attacks.
