HEADACHES

Nearly everyone has experienced a headache at one point or another. According to the World Health Organization, at least 50% of adults globally have experienced a headache in the past year.

SYMPTOMS

Headaches can affect any area of the head, varying in intensity from mild to severe. They might be localized, widespread, or move across the head, presenting as sharp, throbbing, or dull. Their onset can be sudden or gradual, with durations ranging from less than an hour to several days. Identifying specific signs and symptoms is crucial for diagnosing the headache type and guiding treatment strategies.

CAUSES

While the brain itself doesn't feel pain due to a lack of sensory nerves, the surrounding blood vessels, tissues, and nerves can relay pain signals, leading to headaches. Issues with scalp, sinuses, teeth, and neck structures may also trigger headaches. However, the exact causes of many headaches remain largely unknown to medical researchers and doctors.

WHEN TO SEEK URGENT CARE

While most headaches aren't caused by serious conditions, severe or unusual headaches could indicate a critical issue like a stroke, tumor, or blood clot. These instances, however, are rare. It's crucial to act quickly if you suspect a stroke, using the FAST acronym as a guide: Facial drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulties, and Time to call emergency services.

TYPES OF HEADACHES

Headaches fall into two categories: primary and secondary. Primary headaches, like migraines and tension headaches, aren't caused by another condition. Secondary headaches result from other issues, such as neck injuries or infections, with cervicogenic headaches, originating in the neck, being a common type.

TRIGGERS

Understanding and identifying headache triggers is crucial for managing and reducing their occurrence. Common triggers encompass a variety of factors such as specific foods, sleep changes, stress, physical exertion, certain medications, and environmental stimuli like bright lights or loud noises.

TREATMENT

At Mancuso Clinic, tackling the root causes of headaches is key, even when those causes aren't clear. Chiropractic care, particularly for cervicogenic headaches, is effective in alleviating symptoms by correcting dysfunctions in the neck and mid-back. Our approach at Mancuso Clinic combines manipulations with a suite of therapies to relieve muscular tension, thereby easing nerve and blood supply stress in the scalp. We prioritize a multidisciplinary method to headache management, steering clear of the sole reliance on medications to minimize side effects and address pain directly at its sourc

NEXT STEP

Headache disorders significantly affect individuals' lives through diminished quality of life, personal distress, and financial costs. However, effective management techniques and advancements in technology now offer ways to mitigate the impact of headaches, providing hope for those affected.
