Headaches and Migraines
Headaches are quite common and can range from a mild annoyance to a severe hindrance. At Exceptional Chiropractic, our Ham Lake chiropractic team have worked with people suffering from the entire range and scope of headache and migraine pain.
Common Causes, Triggers, & Symptoms of Migraines and Headaches
Just about anyone can experience a headache. Intermittent and infrequent headaches are often caused by dehydration, low blood sugar, stress, poor sleep, illness, medication side effects, strong smells, or even allergies. It can be easy to overlook these headaches, which are frequently mild to moderate, though we advise anyone struggling with recurring head pain to consult with one of us for some insight and assistance.
Headaches can also be caused by strain and tension in the muscles and connective tissues within the neck, shoulders, and back (especially in people with poor postures or excessive sedentary behavior), and can lead to pain in the forehead or back of the head.
Migraine aches are generally considered much more severe, described as throbbing or pounding, and occur on one or both sides of the head. Migraines (believed to have a genetic component and may be related to constricting then dilating blood vessels in the brain) tend to stop people in their tracks. In addition to severe head pain, migraine sufferers may also experience nausea, lightheadedness, sensitivity to light, visual disturbances, and other issues.
