Headaches and Chiropractic

July 6, 2021

Headaches are common, affecting nearly 9 in 10 Americans. While many over-the-counter medications temporarily ease headache symptoms, chiropractic provides a more effective and holistic approach for treating chronic headaches and migraines. In Tampa Bay, chiropractic care is now growing in popularity because of its lasting, natural results. 

 

Classifications and Possible Causes 

Generally, your doctor needs to determine the root cause of your headache by analyzing your symptoms. Headaches can be classified into two categories: Primary headaches and Secondary headaches. 

 

1. Primary Headaches 

These headaches are usually a result of issues with pain-sensitive structures in your head. Examples of primary headaches include:

  • Cluster headache
  • Tension headache
  • Migraine 
  • Migraine with aura 

 

Some primary headaches can also be a result of your lifestyle or activities, such as:

  • Liquor or substance abuse 
  • Unhealthy diet, including too much processed food
  • Improper posture 
  • Irregular sleeping patterns or lack of sleep 
  • Stress
  • Skipped meals 

 

2. Secondary Headaches 

These headaches are usually a symptom of an underlying health condition. There are several health conditions that can be linked to secondary headaches, including:

  • Hypertension 
  • Acute sinusitis 
  • Arterial tears
  • Bloodclot 
  • Dehydration
  • Concussion 
  • Stroke 
  • And many more
