Headaches and Migraines from our Scottsdale Chiropractor
If you suffer from headaches or migraines, no one needs to tell you how debilitating they can be. Especially if it occurs on a continual basis, such recurring pain can cause trouble working, going to school, taking care of family or meeting other responsibilities. If you struggle with headaches or migraines, Dr. Secrest D.C. at Secrest Family Chiropractic can help.
Our Scottsdale Chiropractor Explains Headaches
Luckily, your Scottsdale chiropractor can help. While it may seem uncommonly awful when you’re having the headache or migraine, both conditions are quite common indeed. According to the World Health Organization, more than half of people in the world experience them every year.
This can happen for many reasons, ranging from stress, anxiety, and depression to high blood pressure or other medical disorders. Our Scottsdale chiropractor, however, is adept at not only treating headaches but finding their underlying causes to reduce the chances of a recurrence.
Causes of Headaches and Migraines
Headaches and migraines stem from a huge variety of causes. It’s important to distinguish upfront the difference between a primary and a secondary headache. A primary headache is caused by over-activity or trouble with structures in the brain, such as nerves, muscles and other soft tissues.
A secondary headache or migraine, on the other hand, is caused by an underlying condition. These are nearly limitless, but a few examples include brain freeze from eating cold foods, blood clots, concussions, glaucoma, flu, panic attacks, stroke, overuse of pharmaceuticals, poisoning, brain tumors, hangovers and more.
While your headache likely isn’t a result of these more serious conditions, you never know. That’s why it’s important to first seek holistic, natural help to see if you can determine the underlying cause and alleviate symptoms.
