Headaches can be bothersome, uncomfortable, painful or downright debilitating. If you suffer from regular or even infrequent headaches, you know how disruptive they can be to life, making it difficult to fulfill your family duties, go to work or school, or even enjoy much-deserved R&R. You don’t have to suffer in silence, though. In fact, your chiropractor here at Secrest Family Chiropractic can help you deal with headaches in a safe, noninvasive and natural way.
Your Scottsdale Chiropractor Can Help with Headaches
Headaches come in many forms. A headache can occur in the front of the head, the back of the head, the temples, across the crown or even down the neck. Headaches may also be global, making it feel as though your entire head is being compressed in a vise. Some headaches last only an hour, while others may continue for days if left untreated.
Your Scottsdale chiropractor, luckily, can help. There are many treatments for headaches, which depend on the underlying reasons for their appearance. If you come see our chiropractor in Scottsdale today, he can assess your condition, make a diagnosis and help determine the best course of treatment for you. But first, it’s helpful to understand the root causes of headaches.
What Causes Headaches?
Just as there exist multiple types of headaches, there are also multiple causes. Headaches may stem from stress or strong emotions, such as anxiety, depression or grief. They may also stem from physical sources such as fatigue, allergies, high blood pressure or chronic illnesses. Brain tumors, for instance, are a primary cause of many headaches and migraines.
However, most headaches are a simple matter of overactivity in the region of the brain, which puts pressure on structures such as muscles, blood vessels, nerves and other soft tissues. Changes in the brain’s chemical functioning can also cause headaches. If they get severe enough, making the person sensitive to light, sound and other stimulants, they are usually characterized as migraines.
How Can Chiropractic Care Reduce or Eliminate Headaches?
Chiropractic care can help lessen the effects of your headaches or get rid of them altogether. If you are suffering from stress or anxiety, for instance, you may benefit from chiropractic care that helps relieve those emotions, breaking you free of that “panic pattern” that is so damaging to your health and happiness.
Headaches that stem from other underlying conditions, both physical and mental, can also be treated with chiropractic care, which helps release tension from the entire musculoskeletal system.
