Constant Headaches Are NOT Normal

man with headacheMost people who experience constant headaches are under the impression that everyone regularly has them. Unfortunately, this could not be farther from the truth. Though headaches are seemingly common, they should not be shrugged off as “normal” and left alone. It is important to seek care if headaches are a part of your daily life.

If you can relate to nagging headaches, be sure to be seen by a health care professional as soon as you are able. Though they may seem insignificant, they may be a sign that something bigger is going on.

The Most Common Cause

Headaches are commonly the result of muscle tension. More often than not, they are caused by tight muscles that are putting unwanted pressure on surrounding nerves. This can occur due to repeated behaviors such as sitting at a desk for long periods of time without stretching or moving as well as looking down at your smartphone while perusing the web for hours.

On rare occasions, headaches can indicate tumors or vascular bleeds and blood clots. It is for this reason that neurological evaluations are done early on in our intake process.

Neurological Evaluations to the Rescue

Dr. Lichter and Associates performs thorough neurological testing to rule out the possibility of an emergent issue. Depending on the patient’s age, occupation, and past medical history, it might be necessary to order special imaging, like a CAT scan or MRI. This imaging will help us determine whether or not we should proceed with chiropractic care.

If you are a good candidate for chiropractic care, a mixture of chiropractic care and supplementary modalities can be used to reduce and even resolve your headaches. As each case is unique to the individual, your plan of care will be tailored to meet your specific needs.
