What are Headaches and Migraines?
Headaches and migraines are pain that is felt in the head that lasts anywhere for several minutes to days and months. Common types of headaches include tension headaches, migraines, cluster headaches and sinus headaches.
Tension headaches are the most common type of headaches you can get. They start and stop over time and are usually not severe. Migraines are more painful than tension headaches. They can last several hours to several days. Symptoms of migraines also include nausea, feeling dizzy, upset stomach, and sensitive to noise, light, and smells.
Cluster headaches are the most intense of all headaches you can get. Cluster headaches usually come with an intense pain or a burning behind one eye. These headaches get their name from happening in groups. People may get one or several that last all day to several months. Symptoms of cluster headaches include tearing eyes and a runny nose, small pupil, droopy eyelid, and red eye.
Sinus headaches cause pain on the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, or forehead. Typically, sinus headaches happen when you have a sinus infection. Patients may have a runny nose, puffy face, fever, and feel fullness in their ears.
What Causes Headaches and Migraines?
There are many causes of headaches and migraines. These causes include stress, various sicknesses, genetics, and your environment. Depression, emotional stress, taking too many medications, and poor posture can cause headaches. Illnesses such as infections, sinusitis, and head injuries can trigger a headache.
Migraines can be hereditary. Living in an environment with strong smells like perfumes, secondhand smoke, and allergens can cause headaches. This includes pollution, weather changes, and lighting.
How We Can Help
Spinal manipulation and massage therapy can help relieve symptoms of headaches and migraines. Realigning the spine with the neck also realigns the neuromuscular system in the spine, which can eliminate pressure from headaches. Massage therapy can also bring pain relief to patients with migraines and headaches.
