Types of Headaches Afflicting Residents of Renton, WA

Headaches are hard to cope with, especially if they occur more than just once in a while. Many people have chronic headaches that occur daily or a few times a week. It may be surprising to learn that the term headache is used to describe a number of different types of headaches. What headache types are included?

  • Cluster headaches: This is a very rare type of a headache that causes extreme pain, sweating, tearing and redness of the eyes, and a runny nose.
  • Cervicogenic headaches: These occur frequently and cause neck stiffness and pain.
  • Tension headaches: This is the most common kind of a headache. They cause throbbing and a feeling of pressure in the head along with neck pain.
  • Migraines: This is actually a neurological disorder that has a headache as one of its main symptoms. It is also accompanied by nausea and vomiting, light and sound sensitivity, and may or may not have aura as an additional symptom.

Finding Headache Relief Through Proper Spinal Alignment

Most recent research has revealed that headaches are neurovascular in nature. This indicates that both the vascular system and the nervous system play a part in causing headaches. They are connected to the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and blood to and from the brain. To ensure that this takes place properly, it is vital that the C1 and C2 vertebrae are not misaligned. If a misalignment occurs in either of these bones, it may impede these vital processes and can lead to headaches.

At Sherwood Spinal Care, we use the NUCCA method to detect these tiny misalignments. It only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter to wreak havoc throughout the body. These misalignments can be different for each person. Once a misalignment is precisely measured, a low force correction is administered. There is no popping or twisting of the spine or neck. In case studies, upper cervical chiropractic has been shown to reduce headaches in as few as 1 or 2 adjustments. Some see their headaches go away entirely.
