Headaches and Migraines
In the medical field, headaches are categorized into a number of different types. These include:
- Tension headaches, often brought on by daily stress. These types of headaches account for 80% of all headaches.
- Cluster headaches cause intense bouts of pain lasting from 15 minutes to three hours or more and can become life changing if left untreated.
- Toxic headaches, usually caused by an underlying infection or disease.
- Migraine headaches, involving not just severe head pain but also nausea, sensitivity to light and noise.
Treating headaches with large amounts of pain medication can be counterproductive and ineffective. Using alternative treatments like chiropractic care can not only treat the symptoms, but the root cause of the headache.
