Migraines and Headaches

Headaches are widely regarded as one of the most common health complaints with millions of people experiencing them on a daily basis. While most headaches can be treated with over-the-counter treatments, some are especially painful and are known to reoccur. Frequent, severe headaches may even be a sign of something more serious. Migraines are a specific type of headache that can be, for many people, painful and debilitating.

 

Causes

The cause is often directly linked to the type of headache that you’re experiencing. These types are as follows:

  • Cluster
  • Hormone
  • Medication and painkiller
  • Migraine
  • Tension

Tension headaches are among the most common and are usually brought on by dehydration, poor posture and stress. These usually subside after half an hour though some may take several hours or days to disappear completely. Medication, painkiller and hormone headaches are, as the names suggest, directly caused by taking certain drugs and in the case of women, their periods, menopause and the contraceptive pill.

In the case of migraines and cluster headaches, these are often more serious. Migraines are more intense than tension headaches and are often accompanied by a sensitivity to light and sound as well as nausea and vomiting. Migraines are believed to be a result of chemicals, blood vessels and nerve signals temporarily being disrupted by abnormal neural activity.

Cluster headaches are a rare type of headache that bring about excruciating levels of pain and discomfort. Symptoms can also include pain around one eye, and this type of headache can only be treated effectively with prescribed treatments.

 

Treatments

If you’re losing entire days and missing out on work as a result of constant migraines or headaches; speak to our chiropractors in Dubai today. We’ll arrange an appointment that is convenient for you where we will discuss the nature, severity and frequency of your headaches. By finding out a little more about your lifestyle, we will be able to suggest the right treatment for you.

One such method that has proven successful in the past is locating and stimulating the sensitive trigger points that might be responsible for your headaches. We also look closely at the patient’s spinal health as well as how they are seated while at work or home. As posture is often linked with headaches, we can address any spinal health issues that you might have.

We are also well-versed in techniques that are designed to help reduce any muscle tension. This is because we have found that many of our patient’s migraines and headaches in Dubai are caused by factors such as stress.
