Headaches: Which Type Do You Have?

Headaches: Which Type Do You Have?

headaches-which-type-do-you-haveThere are many different types of headaches with different symptoms for each one. However, they do have one thing in common. When you experience one, you want nothing more than to eliminate it no matter what may be required. You may reach for the nearest bottle of pills, prescription or over-the-counter. Did you know there is a more effective and natural option available? We will discuss this later on. First, let’s look at some common headache types.

Types of Headaches

  • Rebound headaches: These headaches actually occur due to the medications you are taking to care for your original headache. It is a vicious cycle of taking medicine, getting a short period of relief, and then needing to take medication because a headache has returned.
  • Sinus headaches: This is due to the inflammation of the sinuses and is often accompanied by a fever if a sinus infection is present.
  • Tension headaches: The most common type of a headache, it is known for a feeling of a vice gripping your head.
  • Cluster headaches: One of the worst types of headaches, cluster headaches are the only one that affects men more than women. These headaches happen suddenly and come with horrible pain on one side of the face. You also will have a watery eye or a runny nose.

Finding Natural Relief for Headaches

Here at Health Edge Family Spinal Care in Glendale, California, we have been specially trained to help our patients with headaches. Often, the problem lies with a misalignment of the C1 vertebra. We find this tiny misalignment and then use a very gentle method to encourage the bones to move back into place naturally. We are never required to pop or crack the spine or neck for positive results. Once the bone is realigned, the body can begin healing from the damage done, and the brain and body can communicate at their peak once again. This is often all that is needed to see an end to headache pain.
