The Trouble with Headaches

Have you ever been out running errands with your children, husband or friends and ended up getting a headache in Beavercreek, Ohio?

If you have, you know it is not always the most pleasant experience. Sometimes, you could even become debilitated from the pain you are experiencing and end up cancelling plans to stay in bed until the pain subsides.

While nearly everyone is affected by a headache at least once in their lifetime, what you might not readily realize is that not everyone gets headaches.

Cause for Concern

headaches beavercreek ohioHeadaches are any amount of pain happening in the head, scalp or neck. They can happen in varying intensities and for either short or longer periods of time.

Headaches should be a big concern, as they are one of the most common recurring pains that go untreated by professionals. Not because chiropractic professionals do not want to treat them, but because people don’t seek the help.

Often this is because many people assume headaches are just something everybody gets, and they do not seek the assistance. In fact, more often than not a headache is a symptom of a problem caused elsewhere in the body.

The most common causes for headaches include:

    • -Dehydration
    • -Poor posture
    • -Low blood sugar
    • -Tension
    • -Neck pain
    • -Food allergies and sensitivities
    • -Stress
    • -Caffeine or caffeine withdrawal
    • -Lack of sleep
    • -Diet

The Trouble with Headaches

While it does not seem like food allergies, stress or even a lack of sleep can cause a headache, they can. The headache is your body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong and needs to be addressed.

Additionally, it could be a few of these problems occurring at the same time and causing the pain. And, with many of these causes, it is not always easy to determine or correct the problem without seeking assistance.
