Headache – What You Need To Know
Headache giving you troubles? Let’s get to the source of the headache and understand the dynamics of why your body is doing what it is. A headache is a broad term for any type of specific pain/discomfort located in the head/neck region. There are several different types of classifications for headaches and how they are specifically classified. Tension headaches, cluster headaches, migraine headaches, sinus headaches, and rebound headaches (hangovers don’t count, you should know your cause for that one). Several factors are directly responsible for headaches: emotional stress, poor posture, physiological factors, diet, and the most important: the central nerve system. A headache initially is your bodies way of trying to tell you something that is wrong, it’s a red flag, an alert system that something is amiss. A sign or symptom is your body’s best way of functioning at that time. When the headache becomes constant and begins to re-appear on a daily basis, weekly basis, or monthly basis, you never really are healing or overcoming the headache. When headaches begin to become chronic occurrences in your life, help should be sought out. This help comes with specific chiropractic care.
Specific chiropractic care allows your body to heal and to adapt to your headache so you overcome it! By taking x-ray’s and accessing the spine chiropractors are trained to locate specific interference’s within your body and to adjust if necessary. An interference in the central nerve system comes about in the form of a subluxation. A subluxation places undo stress upon a specific nerve thus creating a quagmire of events in the entire central nerve system all together. As a consequence of having a subluxation, your body will begin to give you signs and symptoms, which one can be headaches. Over 70% of all headaches arise from problems with the cervical spine and its related structures – Canadian Family Physician. By having your nerve system checked on a regular basis you can allow your body to heal/adapt to your headaches and live your life to your fullest potential.
