Conroe Chiropractic Clinic Discusses Different
Types of Headaches

chiropractic care for migraines

There are many causes of headaches, and many types, but the most common headache treated by Conroe chiropractors is called the cervicogenic headache, typically brought on by poor posture or stress.

Conroe chiropractic care with gentle corrections, massage therapy, diet change, and postural advice is extremely effective in treating this kind of headache.


Diagnosis

The American Chiropractic association suggests that your Conroe chiropractor ask you to complete a headache diary consisting of:

  • Day and time of the headache
  • Headache location
  • What the headache feels like
  • What you were doing when the headache began
  • How long the headache lasts
  • What makes it feel better or worse

Over 150 diagnostic headache categories have been scientifically established. The most common types of headaches are:

Tension Headaches

These are sometimes referred to as chronic daily headaches. Tension headaches are caused by muscle contractions and cause mild to moderate pain. Tension headaches come and go over a period of time.


Migraines

Inflamed blood vessels and arteries literally squeeze around your brain until it hurts. You may feel nausea, increased blood pressure, and sensitivity to bright light or noise. One of the best treatments for migraines is chiropractic care.


Cluster headaches

The least common (but most severe) headache is often described as located behind the eye region. Cluster headaches can occur one to three times per day during a “cluster” period, which may last two weeks and extend as long as three months. To further complicate matters, a cluster headache may go into remission for months or years only to recur later down the line.


Organic headaches

Finally, organic headaches are the result of abnormalities in the brain and can lead to serious consequences. Only 5% of headaches are organic. It is incredibly important to go to your nearest hospital immediately if you feel:

  • Sudden, sharp, severe pain
  • Sudden lack of balance or falling
  • Confusion
  • Seizures or difficulty speaking
