Causes of Headaches

95% of headaches are tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types are not caused by a disease but result when something in your body is not sitting correctly. When the spine moves out of alignment because of an injury, bad posture, stress, trauma, or some other incident, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. Nerves that become more compressed or irritated send a message to the muscles of the back, neck, and jaw to tighten. Most headaches and migraines are caused by this tightness. While headaches and migraines can be genetic, we can oftentimes locate a trigger or cause. As we learn more about your unique health history, we are able to better diagnose the problem and create a natural treatment plan to restore long-term health.

Common Causes of Headaches and Migraines:

  1. Auto Accidents
  2. If you have been in a recent car crash, it is highly likely that whiplash is the cause of a migraine or severe headache. Whiplash from a car accident can stretch, tear, or rupture the cervical spine, making your tendons, muscles, and nerves around your neck swell. A resulting pinched nerve, or a nerve that has been damaged by increased pressure, is oftentimes the reason you feel throbbing or sharp pain attributed to migraines.

  3. Sports
  4. Sports related injuries can easily cause disc misalignment or hernia in the spine, creating pain in the back, neck and shoulder as nerves become more compressed. If you have suffered from either a severe injury in need of rehabilitation or a common sports injury like a sprain or strain, it is likely you are more susceptible to chronic headaches and migraines. Painful symptoms can become more frequent, especially if you are already prone.

  5. Stress
  6. Tension headaches are one of the most common types of headaches. And the biggest culprit is usually stress. Anxiety, depression, and stress can cause neck and scalp muscles to contract or become tense. Stress-related headaches typically start at the back of the head and progress to the top of the head and eyes. Sometimes, facial pain along the jaw and cheeks accompanies these types of headaches.

  7. Bad Posture
  8. Bad posture greatly impacts the likelihood of stress-related headaches. If you sit hunched over for long periods of time, your muscles will tighten which in turn can cause irritation in the spine and discs. The building pressure can make you feel stiff in the neck and cause your jaw to clench, triggering tension headaches.

  9. Sinus Headaches
  10. If you have sinus problems, you may suffer chronic headaches due to pressure that builds up in the sinuses. Sinus headaches can range in severity and make you incredibly sensitive to pressure changes. Symptoms can also worsen when the weather changes or if you are flying on a plane. Blockage of openings leading to the sinuses is usually what causes headaches and migraines. You may even have a vertebra in your neck out of alignment that is causing problems with drainage in your sinus.
