Headaches are an everyday reality and frustration in the lives of many adults. Headaches can range from mild and brought on by specific circumstances to severe migraines, which take an individual completely out of commission due to the pain they cause. Most chiropractic practice members are at least vaguely aware that their chiropractor can offer solutions to problems like headaches, but they don’t know the extent of the pain that can be alleviated through chiropractic adjustments.
Common Types of Headaches
There are several different types of headaches with a variety of causes and types of pain. The most common type of headache is the tension headache. These are headaches brought on by normal life conditions such as trouble sleeping, elevated stress levels, not drinking enough water, and even spinal misalignments.
A sinus headache is brought on by a buildup of sinus pressure in the area behind the face. This pressure causes a throbbing pain and typically goes away when the sinus issues have subsided. Chiropractic adjustments are a great way to relieve sinus pressure and sinus headaches.
Cluster headaches stem from the nerves in the head and face. When they become inflamed or pinched, the entire head can feel a sensation of pain. Chiropractors are experienced in helping to heal nerve pain, so they can often provide notable relief to cluster headache sufferers.
Migraines are severe forms of headaches. They come with all the traditional signs of headaches, but with the additional debilitating symptoms of blurry vision, vomiting, disorientation, and sensitivity to light or noise. Most individuals take medication to address these types of headaches, but chiropractic care can actually be far more effective both short-term and long-term when dealing with migraines.
Chiropractic Adjustments Can Provide Meaningful Relief
Dr. Micheal Bryan is a Johnson City chiropractor who can provide results in your efforts to reduce your headache symptoms and pain. Painful headaches are generally looked at by those who suffer from them as inconvenient inevitabilities that will always plague otherwise healthy adults from time to time. With this mindset so prevalent among adults, it is little wonder that most fail to find relief from their headaches and just resign themselves to deal with them. When a chiropractor such as Dr. Micheal Bryan of Integral Chiropractic gets involved, he adjusts the spine in order to bring about spinal alignment. When the spine is properly aligned, the central nervous system is able to communicate properly and send signals as it is meant to, meaning the body functions more optimally. When the spine is properly aligned and the central nervous system is working as it should, problems like headaches become incredibly rare and far less severe than when spinal misalignments are present.
