What Causes Headaches?

How often do you have headaches? Amazingly, many people suffer daily with some type of headache. There are many different kinds of headaches from tension headaches to migraines. And you may be experiencing more than one type of headache. People spend billions on aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen (Tylenol) per year. Unfortunately, these types of drugs only treat the pain and not the cause of your headache. These drugs also have possible dangerous side effects, and the side effect can even be a headache. Have you ever read the side effects on these “safe” over-the-counter pain relievers?

So what causes a headache? A headache results when the pain-sensitive parts, including the arteries in the brain and skull, the dura mater covering the brain, and/or the cranial nerves, are infected, inflamed, irritated, stretched, pulled, or compressed. This can result from muscle tension in the neck and shoulder muscles, stress, insufficient food intake, vision changes, hormonal changes, spinal vertebrae misalignment in the neck and mid-back, and dehydration, to name a few.

What can you do? It is important to find what is causing your headache. Removing the cause of your headache is the only surefire way to get results. For hundreds of years, headache sufferers have benefited from natural and drug-free methods including chiropractic. A chiropractor corrects spinal subluxations allowing the body to heal itself. The intensity and frequency of headaches will then decrease or go away completely.
