Headaches

Headaches are acommon cause of discomfort in many people and present in many different ways. Cluster headaches are severe headaches that occur often with pain typically located around one of the eyes. Tension headaches are described as a tight band around the head. Migraine headaches are typically located on one side of the head. They are very painful and can sometimes be associated with an aura. These auras include blurry vision, light sensitivity and nausea or vomiting. Headaches are more prevalent in middle-aged women. The patient will present with localized discomfort in the upper neck and skull and a limited range of motion in the cervical spine. Tenderness is elicited on palpation of the musculature in the cervical spine and upper shoulders. Multiple factors trigger headaches, including lack of mobility in the joints of the cervical spine, postural stresses such as sitting at a desk for long periods of time, low blood sugar, poor sleep patterns, dehydration and reactions to certain foods such as red wine and chocolate. Chiropractic care can help correct dysfunctions in the cervical spine that may be contributing to your headaches. Your doctor will also help you determine if other factors may cause your headaches and how to modify those to decrease your symptoms.
