WHAT EXACTLY IS A HEADACHE?
How many times have you been sitting at your desk at work and had a throbbing pain take over your head? Do you ever wake in the morning to a pain so intense you just want to crawl back under the covers and start the day over again? Headaches are exactly what they sound like, an ache in your head.
Pain can strike along various parts of your scalp and head, as well as down into your shoulders. A headache could be the result of an injury, physical impact or just being under a lot of stress. Migraines tend to be far more severe. They are accompanied by nausea and light sensitivity.
WHAT CAN A CHIROPRACTOR DO TO PROVIDE HEADACHE RELIEF?
Headaches involve various nerves throughout your body. Pain is sent through all of the nerves and travels wherever they might roam. When your spinal bone isn’t in the right position, it can cause your nerves to become irritated and inflamed.
In turn, you end up with intense pain in your neck, shoulders and head because of the irritation in those nerves. A specific type of spinal correction can help to get your spine back into alignment and eliminate some of the pressure on your nerves that is causing the headache to flare up in the first place.
