Headaches Q & A
What are the types of headaches?
There are many types of headaches that cause an array of symptoms and have different triggers. Lynnwood Chiropractic & Injury Center specializes in the treatment of tension headaches and migraines.
Tension headaches are a common type of headache that causes mild to moderate pain in the back of the head and around the temples.
These types of headaches develop from tightness in the muscles in your head, neck, or shoulder. Stress, lack of sleep, and skipping meals are common causes of tension headaches.
Migraines are a type of headache that causes intense throbbing pain on one side of the head. The pain may last a few hours or a few days.
In addition to head pain, migraines may also cause other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light. Many people also experience symptoms before and after a migraine attack.
Hormones, certain types of food, changes in weather, or stress may trigger a migraine.
Both tension headaches and migraines are common and affect millions of people. These headaches may occur occasionally or frequently.
