Types of Headaches
When it comes to working up the energy to get to the gym, that in itself might feel like a headache for you. But did you know there is something also called exercise headaches? Exercise headaches occur during or after sustained, strenuous exercise. Some activities associated with exercise headaches include running, rowing, tennis, swimming and weightlifting. We provide chiropractic care for athletes and always instruct our athletic patients to hydrate, stretch, and eat properly to avoid exercise headaches!
If you recently experienced a car accident in Broward County, you may have also experienced whiplash. Whiplash and chiropractic care are synonymous for the relief that chiropractic adjustments provide for car accident patients. A common side effect of whiplash are headaches, more specifically known as whiplash headaches. “Headache after whiplash injury often shows itself for the first time on the morning after the accident. The pain sweeps up from the neck and over the back of the head. Neck movements often aggravate the problem – particularly if the neck is moved towards extension: looking up to the ceiling is often very painful.”
The most common type of headache in adults and the least severe are called, tension headaches. About 80% of the US population suffers from this type of headache at some point in time, women being more prone to experiencing this in particular. One of the major reasons why this headache occurs is due to subluxation, or a misalignment of the vertebrae. This can stem from poor posture, putting any strain on your neck and back muscles, lack of exercise and more.
How might chiropractic care treat headaches?
Chiropractic adjustments not only reduce the severity of a migraine or another type of headache, they can also help decrease the frequency of occurrence.
A chiropractic adjustment is one of the best chiropractic care methods for headache treatment, as they promote proper alignment of the body’s natural musculoskeletal structure, the spine in particular. This supports the body in healing back and neck pain without invasive procedures and/or medication and is practiced in a controlled manner, using pressure or force at various speeds to the spinal joints causing dysfunction or pain. The doctor uses this method to manipulate joints, which improves range of motion.
