If you’ve ever had a migraine headache, you know it’s not pleasant. Does weather affect you? Some people find that bright sunshine as well as hot and humid conditions can trigger migraines. Some women notice they get migraines when their hormones are “acting up” during menstruation, pregnancy or menopause. Ideally, it’s a good idea to keep a “headache diary” so you can tell your Chanhassen headaches doctor what was happening right before you got a terrible headache. A headache diary should include information about the foods you eat, what you drink, and what your body is going through at the time, such as having sat at a desk for hours staring at a computer.
Your Chanhassen headaches doctor at Abundant Life Chiropractic can help you figure out if what you’re experiencing is a migraine or a tension or cluster headache. Tension headaches typically come from stressful moments where a person is feeling anxious, tired or angry. A tension headache begins in a person’s forehead or their temples or at the back of the head and neck. Meanwhile cluster headaches come in sudden groups whereas pain sneaks up on you, usually on one side of the head. A cluster headache is intense and may result in a tearing or bloodshot eye and a runny nose on the side of the headache. If you suffer from headaches, chiropractic care can help bring relief so you don’t have to needlessly suffer.
Most people who have headaches are forced to withdraw from everyday normal activities. The pain in their head hurts so bad that all they want to do is rest or sleep. Regular chiropractic care, however, can put people back on track to a “normal” life where they can go to their kids’ games, enjoy noise and light again, and get their life back.
