There are several causes of headaches. For the majority of people, the real cause of the headaches is the spinal alignment. When viewed from the side, the neck is positioned directly over the shoulders and the earlobes align with the shoulder joint. The farther the head is in front relative to the shoulders, the more the nerves in the neck and head get pinched or irritated. This, often times, results in a headache.
In today’s world, many people spend long hours working in front of a computer with poor spinal alignment. Working on a laptop makes matters even worse as one must constantly look down in order to see the screen. Incidentally, this tends to report the greatest number of headaches.
In some cases, people keep their computer screen too far away and are constantly sticking their head out in order to look at the screen. Over time, the muscles in the upper back and neck areas become extremely tight and start to pull on the base of the skull, resulting in a tension headache. A tension headache is often described as a “squeezing” or “gripping” kind of pain, sometimes wrapping around the whole head.
There are some people who suffer from migraine headaches, which are often described as “throbbing” or “pounding” pain. Migraine headaches mostly affect only one side of the head and are often associated with light sensitivity, nausea and, in severe cases, vomiting.
In either type, when the nerves in the neck are being pinched headache sufferers also report having tingling, numbness or weakness down the arm and into the fingers.
When it comes to eliminating the headache, it is crucial to address not just the headache but also what’s causing it. In a majority of cases, headaches are caused by reduced motion in the neck joints resulting from misaligned vertebrae. The best solution for getting rid of the excruciating pain by Chiropractic care.
By restoring normal movement to the spine and correcting forward head posture, the nerve pressure will normalize with the passage of time. In addition, the misalignment process can ultimately be reversed. In this way, it will prevent the headache from returning.
