Most common type of headache
This type of headache feels like a band is tightening around the head, like a helmet that is too small and are frequently associated with muscular stress and a lack of sleep.
Tension-type headaches typically respond very well to chiropractic care.
This type of headache commonly presents on one side of the head. It usually starts at the back of your head/neck and travels towards the forehead or temple and may move behind your eye.
The cause can be traced to poor movement of the joints in the upper portion of the neck, resulting in radiatign pain.
Cervicogenic headaches frequently respond well to chiropractic care.
Migraines usually present as severe, pulsating headache that may switch from side to side.
People who suffer from migraines may also notice sensitivity to light and/or loud noises, experience symptoms of nausea and/or vomitting along with a headache.
There are many different causes of migraines. During your initial evaluation, an indepth history and evaluation will help determine the contributing causes of your migraines.
