Seeking Relief for Chronic Headaches
Due to stress and emotional problems, a person can experience a headache. Simple and mild headaches can be treated with pain relievers. Migraines can vary from mild pain to severe. Sinusitis is also a cause of headache pain. Even those with hypertension can experience this pain and be in need of headache relief and treatment.
Headaches are a pain in the head with varying types. Some people experience this head pain when they wake up in the morning. Some are irritated with glaring lights, some feel throbbing or pounding in their head. Headaches can be felt on any part of your head or may involve the whole skull.
Sometimes, the root cause is hard to explain. But the following are facts are hard to contest:
Headaches may be temporary, intermittent, or chronic.
Mild headaches can be helped with specific exercises and pain medication.
Types of Headaches
Headaches are classified into different types and level of pain. Understanding the information from the International Headache Society (IHS) will give us a better outlook on how to deal with headache pain.
Primary headaches (migraine, tension, and cluster)
Secondary headaches (hangover, blot clot, glaucoma, anxiety, etc.)
Facial or cranial headaches
A cluster headache can cause an unbearable pain that happens on one side of the head. It can be above the eyes, around or behind them. Generally in a swirling pattern, thus it is called “cluster”.
Skipping meals, stress or lack of sleep can result in tension headaches.
Secondary headaches can be a result of alcohol, stress, blood clot, anxiety, eye disorders (such as glaucoma.) They are called secondary because they stimulate structures and nerves in the head causing you pain.
The IHS guideline also notes that a person may experience a combination of two or more types of headache pain. These could be a mix of primary and secondary types.
Common Causes of Headaches
The following are some of the common causes of headaches:
Stress, anxiety, emotional problems
Injury, accidents or trauma to the brain
Signs and Symptoms
May may be getting a headache when you have the following signs:

Headaches may seem to be simple pains you can overcome with pain relievers. But if you can’t get a good night’s sleep due to a headache or it has become chronic, there could be some underlying causes.
Headache Relief and Treatment
We can help you solve your headache problems.
The first step is to evaluate your neck and head area for any trauma or underlying conditions with xrays or MRI, with testing of muscles, and checking motion in neck and spine. We will also test your posture and record it so we know what corrections may need to be made. From this information, we can determine how to align and straighten the spine to bring balance and ease to the muscle tension in the neck and shoulder muscles that also cause pain in the head and can trigger your pain.
