What causes headaches?
Headaches are a common chronic health problem. Each year, millions of people struggle with chronic or recurring headaches. To outsiders, headaches may seem like a minor annoyance. But chronic sufferers know how debilitating a bad headache can be.
Unfortunately, headaches are often difficult to diagnose. Many different medical conditions can cause headaches, including:
- Sports injuries
- Workplace injuries
- Sinus problems
- Dental problems
Some people also experience a special kind of headache known as a migraine. Migraine headaches can last for days at a time, and symptoms are usually severe. During a migraine, you may be in so much pain that it’s impossible to work or attend school.
What are the symptoms of headaches?
Symptoms can vary. During a headache, you may experience pain in the front, sides, or back of your head. Your pain may also spread into your neck, shoulders, or jaw.
You may find that your symptoms come and go. Some days, you may feel healthy and pain-free. But chronic headaches can return without warning. Fortunately, treatment at The Injury Center, LLC can help lessen your symptoms, so you’re able to keep up with your daily activities.
What treatments can help relieve headaches?
If you suffer from recurring headaches, you may rely on pain relievers to get through your day. But these medications quickly wear off. In time, you may build up a tolerance to your medication. Some medicines also cause “rebound headaches” or headaches that worsen once the drugs wear off.
But medication isn’t your only option. At The Injury Center, LLC, Dr. Wyrwas can perform an in-depth chiropractic evaluation to find out what’s behind your headaches. Next, he helps you find drug-free solutions for your chronic pain.
Can chiropractic medicine help with headaches?
When your spine shifts out of alignment, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. Over time, these nerves become irritated and inflamed, triggering pain throughout your head and neck. Chiropractic treatments help resolve structural problems, relieving pressure on muscles and nerves.
Chiropractic treatments are highly effective for treating stubborn headaches and chronic pain. At The Injury Center, LLC, Dr. Wyrwas uses a variety of techniques to gently realign your spine. These treatments can provide immediate pain relief and improve your long-term health.
If you have recurring headaches, a chiropractic evaluation can put you back on the road to health. Call The Injury Center, LLC today or schedule an appointment online.
