A headache occurs when a patient experiences persistent pain in any part of the head. Several different kinds of headaches can develop, but the 2 most common types of headaches are tension headaches and migraines.
A tension headache usually causes pain across the entire head, as well as soreness in the neck and shoulders. Most patients describe this type of headache as a dull ache. A migraine, on the other hand, causes more severe pain. In most cases, migraines affect only 1 side of the head at a time. The pain may throb or pulsate. Patients with migraines may also experience other symptoms, including:
Tension headaches typically occur because of physical or emotional stress. The cause of migraines is less clear, but most researchers believe that they’re related to changes in the way the brainstem interacts with the trigeminal nerve. Chemicals in the brain may also play a role in the development of migraines.
When a patient comes to Circle City Chiropractic with headaches or migraines, the doctors begin by evaluating the patient and asking questions to determine the cause of the pain. Based on this information, the doctor develops an effective treatment plan customized to meet the patient’s needs.
