Head Pain Relief

Tension Headaches / Tension Headache Relief

The most common type of head pain, tension headaches are often described as feeling like a tight band around the head. Common causes may be poor posture or an injury, which can force your spinal vertebrae out of alignment. This puts pressure on the nerves and blood vessels. When nerves send painful signals to surrounding neck muscles, those muscles tighten up and a headache may begin. Other headache triggers include stress, caffeine, smoking, allergies, alcohol, some diseases, and nutritional deficiencies.

Migraine Headaches / Migraine Headache Relief

A migraine is a throbbing, intense headache in one half of the head. During an attack, the blood vessels in the brain dilate and then draw together with stimulation of nerve endings near the affected blood vessels. These changes to the blood vessels are probably what cause the pain, but a migraine headache is still a condition that is poorly understood.

What might trigger a migraine? Most people suffering from migraines are aware that different foods, such as cheese, chocolate, wine or citrus fruits, can cause attacks. Other triggers include exercise, anxiety, stress, bright lights, loud noise, the pill and travel. These particular causal factors vary from patient to patient, but knowing them can help in your search for migraine headache relief. Some women experience attacks more frequently around the time of their menstrual periods. Migraine headache treatment with chiropractic care has been shown to help reduce the severity and frequency of migraine attacks.

TMJ Pain

If you feel pain near your jaw when you talk, chew or yawn, you may be suffering from a TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joint is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. Temporomandibular disorders occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint, and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw. TMJ affects the joint where your skull meets your lower jaw. Stress, grinding or clenching your teeth, poor posture or an injury can cause the joint to become misaligned. You may hear clicking sounds or have pain, headaches, stiffness or a locked jaw. Chiropractic care can ease pain by realigning the misalignment between the spine and nervous system, relaxing the muscles and adjusting the joints.
