Headaches


When you have a headache, this is the result of
swelling or tightening of the muscles or blood vessels. Migraines are believed to be caused by the activity of excitable brain cells or bodily chemicals or hormones. All you know is that it hurts, and you need a headache treatment to relieve the pain.

Why Do I Get Headaches?

One-half to three-quarters of adults ages 18-65 get headaches at least once a year, and many people get them much more often than that. There are many causes, such as: 

  • Stress/anxiety
  • Sinus problems
  • Sleep issues
  • Dehydration
  • Hyperthermia/heat exhaustion
  • Caffeine withdrawal

How Will Headache Treatment Make the Pain Stop?

When you have a minor headache, you can usually ease the pain with an over-the-counter analgesic, plenty of water, and some rest and relaxation. If the pain persists, a headache treatment by a medical professional can diagnose the source of the pain and then use a variety of treatments to get you back in shape.

Each patient is different, so each headache is different, and thus each headache treatment is different. Believe it or not, the problem could be originating at a completely different spot in your body than your head, but this misalignment is manifesting as a headache.
