Headaches

Headaches are very common

Headaches can also be complex to diagnose. There are many types including tension-type, cervicogenic (coming from your neck), migraines, sinus headaches, cluster headaches and even headaches coming from temporomandibular (jaw) issues. Most believe that they will simply resolve on their own. However, often many of us put up with them, thinking it is just part of life.

The good news is there are ways to both prevent and treat frequent headaches.

What causes a headache?

Headaches can have a number of causes. However, your symptoms can help me determine what it the cause and what treatment you may benefit from. Fortunately, most headaches are not caused by serious illnesses, but in some cases they may require immediate medical attention. Going through a thorough initial consultation helps to rule-in and rule-out certain causes of your pain.

A lot of headaches are due to dysfunction of pain-sensitive structures or a build up of tension within nearby structures. Various parts in the brain or surrounding your head and neck, like nerves, joints and muscles, can play an important role in your headache. For others, headaches can be triggered by certain foods and lifestyle factors like:

How can I get relief from my headache?

Once you know what kind of headache you have then you can find the right kind of care. Some headaches can be caused by stress. This typically results in a tension-type headache. Addressing the stress and anxiety causing the headache is an important part of your recovery. This kind of headache can respond well to therapies supporting the overall well-being of the person like sound therapy. Sound Therapy is available as a stand alone therapy at Natural Back Health.

Other headaches can be caused by pain referred to the head from structures in your neck. This type of headache is referred to as cervicogenic (meaning coming from your neck). Treating and releasing tension within this area can help relieve pain and restore natural function. This kind of headache responses well to hands-on therapy such as is offered at Natural Back Health.
