Causes of Headaches in Appleton WI

Causes of headaches can come from a muscle strain, eyestrain on the job due to too much computer work, with day to day stress bringing on constant muscle tension and many other reasons. The severity of headaches can range from a mild throbbing pain to an absolute relentless pain. Many of us refer to a severe headache as a migraine. The term migraine headache refers to the type of headache rather than the severity.

Types of Headaches

Three types of headaches are commonly treated at chiropractic offices, with those being cervicogenic headaches, migraine headaches and tension headaches.

Cervicogenic headaches are caused from pain from the bones and soft tissue of the neck and sent to a person's head. These types of headaches can be alleviated through a series of chiropractic adjustments.

Let's take a look at tension headaches. Caused by daily stress at home or at work, tension headaches can have a person change their posture as the stress and tension increases. This change in posture for the person brings about symptoms of tension headaches.

Looking ahead, a patient can subside the headache pain of a tension headache with chiropractic methods. Addressing a tension headache with chiropractic adjustments is a holistic approach to minimizing the effects of a tension headache caused by day-to-day stress.

Chiropractic adjustments will help reduce a patient's constant tension headaches. This is generally accomplished over the course of a few visits, providing less pain and lessening the necessity for constant posture changes.

Migraine headaches are vascular headaches caused by an increase in the dilation of blood vessels. The start of a migraine headache is generally precluded with the changes to a person's sensitivity, such as light and sound and may be coupled with a feeling of nausea.

For many migraine sufferers, over-the-counter medicines aren't effective. Many people resign themselves that the only alternative during a migraine is to seclude themselves in a dark, quiet room until the pain subsides.

Chiropractic adjustments can improve the vascular flow for a person, thereby reducing recurring migraine headaches. Many headaches can be subsided through the use of chiropractic adjustments.
