Headaches are so universally dreaded that we equate many forms of pain or discomfort with headaches. When you have frequent headaches, it can be hard to get through your daily routine. Fortunately, there are ways for Gresham locals suffering from frequent headaches to treat and prevent headache pain.
What Causes A Headache?
Headaches can have a number of causes. Gresham locals should discuss symptoms with your Hood View Chiropractic chiropractor to help determine its cause and what treatment you may benefit from. Fortunately, most headaches are not caused by serious illnesses, but in some cases, they may require immediate medical attention. Your chiropractor can certainly help you rule-in and rule-out the cause of your headache pain.
Commonly, primary headaches are due to overactivity of or problems with pain-sensitive structures. Various structures in the brain or surrounding your skull and neck, like nerves, joints, and muscles, can play a role in your headache. For some, headaches can be triggered by certain foods and even lifestyle factors like:
- Alcohol, particularly red wine
- Certain foods, such as processed meats
- Lack of sleep
- Poor posture
- Missed meals
- Excessive stress
Headaches can also be caused by pain referred to the head either from bony structures or soft tissues (e.g., muscles) of the neck. This type of headache is referred to as cervicogenic, meaning originating from the cervical spine and/or surrounding structures. This includes irritation and/or dysfunction of the cervical spine joints which can refer pain to the head. Treating joint dysfunction can help relieve pain and restore proper function.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help
A chiropractor is a spine, muscle, and nervous system expert specifically trained to diagnose the underlying cause of your frequent headaches.
At Hood View Chiropractic, we perform a comprehensive history and examination of each patient to determine whether the symptoms are coming from joint dysfunction of the spine or other surrounding structures like muscles. We also rule out other possible causes and refer to appropriate medical professionals when needed for additional testing or care to help our Gresham patients.
By performing a thorough history, Hood View Chiropractic may also be able to determine if a patient’s lifestyle factors (e.g., diet, alcohol, or stress) may be triggers for frequent headaches. Finally, we will discuss treatment options with each of our Gresham patients and answer questions you may have. Treatment options may include spinal manipulation or mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and other modalities. Exercises may even be prescribed to help correct your posture.
