Do you know what type of headaches you get? Knowing what type of headaches you get can help you get the right treatment. Use this quick guide to help you get started. Your chiropractic doctor can help you identify what type or types of headaches you have and what treatments are most effective.

Is the pain dull and achy? You may have a Tension Headache.

These headaches:

  • Can feel like a tight band or vice around your head
  • May include tension in your shoulders, neck, or jaw
  • Can be triggered by stress, poor sleep, painful emotions, and neck strain
  • Tend to start slowly

Is the pain severe and throbbing? You may have a Migraine.

These headaches:

  • Can also cause nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light and sound
  • May be on just one side of your head
  • Can get worse if you move around
  • May come with an aura, a set of signs that happen before the headache starts

Is the pain intense and does it come back daily or more than once a day for weeks? You may have a Cluster Headache.

These headaches:

  • Are often centered around or behind one eye
  • May include a runny or stuffy nose and redness and tearing in one eye
  • Often start all of a sudden and become very painful within minutes
  • Tend to happen every day, or several times a day, for weeks or months and then go away until the next cluster

Chiropractic care has been proven effective for both tension- and migraine-type headaches. Your chiropractic doctor may also refer you to another health care provider, such as an acupuncturist, a physical therapist, a massage therapist, a registered dietitian, or a medical doctor, if your headache requires a different type of care. Don’t suffer with your headaches any longer. Ask your chiropractor if there are any tests, referrals, or treatments that might be helpful to use along with your current treatment plan.
