Headaches Q&A

What Causes Headaches?

From hormonal imbalance to the foods you eat, headaches have a variety of triggers.  In general, headaches are divided into two types - primary headaches and secondary headaches.  Primary headaches are caused by overactive pain-sensitive structures in your head.  Nerves or blood vessels outside of your head, chemical activity in your brain, the muscles of your back and neck, or any combination of these problems can cause a headache that does not have an underlying disease. When a nerve in the back or neck is pinched or impinged, it can cause acute headaches and trigger migraine symptoms. Secondary headaches are symptoms of an underlying problem or disease.  For instance, the headache that accompanies the flu, a concussion, or a sinus infection is considered a secondary headache.

What Can I Do to Treat a Headache Without Medication?

While headaches can be debilitating, it is important to know that medication is not the only option for treating your pain.  Chiropractic adjustment, or manipulation of the spine, has long been known to have pain-relieving benefits for headaches.  By realigning the spine, blood flow that was once impaired is then restored, nerves are realigned, and the muscles of your neck can relax into their proper place.  When combined with massage therapy, chiropractic adjustment at the hands of Dr. Wubante can effectively treat your headaches without the use of medications.

How Can I Prevent Headaches in the Future?

Chronic stress, poor diet, poor posture, and poorly set up work environments can all contribute to the frequency of your headaches.  Getting adequate sleep, managing your stress, and meditating can all prevent headaches in the future.  In addition to regular chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Wubante will also recommend strengthening exercises, herbal supplements, and changes to your workstation that will make sure you are a headache free for years to come.
