Treat the Cause of Headaches, Not the Symptoms!!!

a person enduring headache pain“We all want more MEDICATIONS!!!!” …said no one ever.

So what can you do for those headaches? The first priority is determining which type of headache you have. The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners requires Chiropractors to learn the 14 most common types of headaches, however there are well over 60 variations to those headaches. Some of those headaches can be deadly! So it’s best to seek professional help.

The four most common of the 14 that we see at Montgomery Chiropractic are the following: Migraines, Tension, Cervicogenic and Sinus.

Migraines

These headaches can occur in adults as well as children. They are typically debilitating headaches that cause nausea, vomiting, auras (seeing spots). Migraines tend to only get better with sleep, dark room and a quiet space. Most resort to different types of pain relievers when they have them which may or may not help. Some have been prescribed medication by their doctors, which have provided little to no relief. If this is you, you are not alone.

Tension

Tension headaches can occur at any age. These headaches typically feel like a tight band around the head, also referred to as vice like. They are commonly described a pressure or muscle tightness. These headaches are typically caused by fatigue, tension, stress and work.

Cervicogenic

Cervicogenic headaches are most common in adults. They typically have an onset at the end of the day and are often made worse with movement of the neck. If you are in an accident (whiplash) or have a neck injury there is a possibility you are having this headache. Other headaches are associated with injuries so be sure to contact Montgomery Chiropractic to receive a proper diagnosis. Cervicogenic headaches are also associated with neck pain.

Sinus/Allergy

Sinus headaches are common in Central Texas. I cannot tell you how many patients have come in who are on Zyrtec or an allergy medication of some kind as “preventive” care. Sinus headaches are typically localized pressure. They are described as a steady throb, local tenderness and worse in the mornings. These headaches can increase with bending forward or change in positons.
