A headache, medically known as cephalalgia, is a continuous pain, discomfort, throbbing or ache in the head, scalp, or neck area. The pain you feel is created by the disturbances of the pain receptors around the brain. A headache is common and usually having one every so often isn’t cause for major concern. There are multiple headache classifications and the symptoms and reasoning behind them vary. Advacare Clinics, located in Bloomington, MN offers multiple holistic approaches that can help relieve your headaches and lower, if not eliminate the frequency of them with Chiropractic Adjustments, Massage Therapy, Non-Surgical Medical Treatments and more.
Common Types of Headaches:
Often hereditary and extremely painful, they can lead to days in bed. They often begin with distorted vision, hand numbness. Symptoms are vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound.
Stress and possibly brain chemicals can be to blame for this painful experience. Tension headaches are often relieved by over-the-counter-medication. The symptoms are aches in the head, temples and neck. These are the most common types of headaches.
Frequent headaches that form a pattern, come on rapidly and are extremely intense are called cluster headaches. The direct cause is yet unknown but like migraines they may run in genetics, unlike migraines they may make the person suffering restless, unable to sleep.
If you have cold like symptoms or sinus inflammation, you may also experience a sinus headache. This pain is due to an infection and may need to be treated by a health professional.
