Factors That Cause Headaches and Migraines
The National Institute of Health reports that over 28 million Americans suffer from headaches on an ongoing basis. Chronic headaches can be a “red flag” for a more serious condition. Headaches are your body’s way of communicating something is wrong. By taking pain medication to cover up the symptom, you can cause more problems later down the road. 95% of headaches are caused by muscle tension from poor posture, automobile injuries, including whiplash, and TMJ. The other 5% is caused by foods and environmental stresses.
Cervical headaches, in particular, have a tell-tale subtle, increasingly worse throbbing and can be caused by subluxation or misalignment of the vertebrae in your neck. The discs that buffer each bone in your upper torso can become damaged due to poor posture, trauma from an accident, or disease. When this occurs, it can cause the discs to degenerate and bulge, pressing the nerves in the region and causing inflammation and pain. While over-the-counter pain relief medicine, rest, and cold compresses can temporarily stop a minor headache, the root of the issue is still there and could trigger another episode shortly after. It’s important to get an expert diagnosis and examination by a licensed chiropractic who will help you finally get long-lasting relief to those pain debilitating chronic headaches and migraines. If you’ve tried to relieve the constant pain and discomfort you feel due to headaches with no success, contact the medical staff at Effective Chiropractic PG County. We can diagnose your discomfort and ensure you get the relief you need.
