Headaches are a condition almost everyone has experienced at one point or another. Many people default to taking over the counter medication for headache relief. Some try and listen to their body and stop to rest in hopes that the headache will go away on its own. Others simply try and tough it out. While suffering from the occasional headache may not warrant medical attention, suffering from headaches regularly will significantly reduce the quality of your life. If you are suffering from chronic headaches in Klamath Falls, Advanced Chiropractic is ready to assist you.
Why Do Headaches Occur?
Common causes of headaches include:
- Another injury, such as a neck injury that radiates to the back of the head
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Preservatives and food additives
- Drinking more than your body can handle
- Abstaining from certain substances, such as caffeine and nicotine
- Sudden changes in temperature
- Too much light
- Loud noises
- Hormone levels
- Stress, sleep problems, and eye strain are also common triggers.
Shifting estrogen during menstrual cycles, or as perimenopause begins, can trigger headaches in many women. This may be one of the reasons why women experience headaches more often than men do.
