Headache Pain - Where Does it Come From and Why


The primary source of recurring headache pain is often linked to muscle tension in the neck.  Because of this, the nerves in the neck are irritated and pinched.  The muscles can be pulled and the vertebrae (bones) in the neck can mis-align and pinch the nerves that supply the head and brain.  

Recurring headache pain is not normal.  And, you don't have to "learn to live with it."  Chiropractic care can help correct the possible causes of headache pain, allowing the body to heal.

There are steps that can be taken at home to help relieve this pain.  Be sure that you are eating regular, nutritious meals.  Low blood sugar can trigger a headache.  Maintaining a regular sleep cycle may also help.  Most adult needs approximately 6-8 hours of sleep per night.  Increased exercise can increase blood from to the brain, and also help reduce stress with the benefits of keeping you physically fit.  Lastly, drink plenty of water each day.  Dehydration often leads to headaches.
