A headache is always a warning sign that something is not right in our body! There are several types of headaches and migraines as there are several causes. The most common cause of a headache is the overload of the nervous system, which we know as stress.
Headache caused by Stress
Among the various types of headaches, those produced by tension are the most common. These are often due to the cervical spine losing its normal curvature, which can be caused by a combination of factors: poor posture (at work, when sleeping), falls, bumps, accidents, whiplash injuries, tension in nerves, stress, etc.
To compensate for this straightening of the cervicals and keep the head in a normal position, the neck muscles work excessively, reaching spasm and creating strong contractures.
Moreover, these cervical problems can cause, in the long term, vertebral wear, such as cervical osteoarthritis and even a herniated disc. That is why it is very important not to mask the discomfort with pills, but to treat the cause of the problem.
This throbbing pain, usually located on one side of the head, is often aggravated by light and is accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
A Migraine occurs as a result of a constriction of the blood vessels of the head, with subsequent dilation of the latter causing pain.
Although there is a predisposition to heredity, migraines are not normal and must be treated properly.
In people who suffer from migraines, we often encounter a vertebral blockage of the cervical nerves that irritate the nerves that control the function of the blood vessels. To detect it and, if positive to treat it, it is recommended to carry out a chiropractic review of the spine.
