Types of Headache Disorders

According to the World Health Organization, roughly 50% of people have reported a headache disorder, or a recurrent headache, within a 12-month period. Headaches are one of the most common nervous system issues. There are three main types of headaches people experience: tension-type headaches, migraine and cluster headaches.

Each headache type has its own source and related pains. We are committed to helping you find relief of headaches through chiropractic care. Our treatment for headaches and migraines includes a variety of our services to address the root problem, not just relieving the symptom.

Tension Headaches

Tension-type headache is the most common headache and often feels like pressure or tightness around your whole head extending to or from the neck. It is more common in women, and its mechanism may be stress-related or linked to musculoskeletal issues in the neck. You may experience episodic tension-type headaches that can last from a couple of hours to a couple of days!

Migraine Headaches

Migraines often affects individuals mainly between 35 and 45 years old, more commonly in women due to hormonal influences. While tension headaches often feel like bands of pressure around your head, migraines are characterized as one-sided and pulsating. They can be accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to lights or sounds.

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches are the least common of the three types and impacts more men than women. A cluster headache is characterized as a frequent, severe but brief headache. They can occur multiple times in one day. Typically, the pain is associated with the eye area and can cause the eye to be swollen, red and block nasal passages.

Tallahassee Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches and Migraines

According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care can help relieve headache pains and reduce their frequency. Our skilled Tallahassee chiropractors use gentle, natural techniques to address misalignment in the spine that could be contributing to your headache and migraine symptoms. By restoring proper alignment and function, chiropractic adjustments can alleviate tension, reduce nerve interference and promote better overall health.

In conjunction with manual adjustment, we also use massage therapy and acupuncture here at Verity Health Center, a top Tallahassee chiropractor, to help manage your headache and migraine pains. According to the American Massage Therapy Association, acupuncture and massage therapy have shown some promise in reducing symptoms related to tension-headache and migraines since they target areas of tension.
