Headaches are a commonly suffered fact-of-life that affects just about every person at one time or another. Many people are unaware that chiropractic care can help relive headache pain and, in some cases, altogether eliminate the underlying causes of headaches, correcting sleep deprivation problems, relieving other widespread bodily pain and improving one's overall quality of life. Headaches result from a variety of factors like reactions to certain medication, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), neck and back muscle tightness or spasms from bad posture or sleep positions, low blood sugar events, high blood pressure events, overall stress and extreme fatigue. Most common headaches are called tension headaches, described as constant, dull, achy discomfort on one or both sides of the head. These headaches are often caused by stress or bad posture, when the spine and muscles in the upper back and neck are unnaturally strained. Some people, the majority being women, suffer migraine headaches, which are described as intense, throbbing headaches that may even cause nausea and heightened sensitivity to light and noise. Some migraines can even last a few days, severely reducing one's overall wellness level and decreasing quality of life immensely.
