Headaches Q&A

What causes headaches?

Headaches take many forms, and there are over 150 kinds. Some are mild, while others are so intolerable you’re unable to function normally. Headaches often pass the same day, but some persist far longer, and others recur frequently.

Structural problems in your head, spine, or neck cause primary headaches. That could be a musculoskeletal or neurological (brain and nerve) problem. People of all ages experience primary headaches, including migraine, cluster, and tension headaches.

Secondary headaches result from underlying problems, such as:

  • Sinus infections
  • Colds and flu
  • High blood pressure
  • Dehydration
  • Concussion
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Stroke
  • Excessive alcohol consumption

Prescription pain medications, certain foods, and preservatives can also trigger headaches in some people.

Dr. Smith conducts a comprehensive exam and reviews your medical history to identify the causes and contributing health issues responsible for your headaches. They create a customized treatment plan to provide you with long-term pain relief.

How can I avoid headaches?

Not all headaches are preventable, but with expert help, you can reduce their frequency and severity. To reduce migraines and chronic tension headaches, Dr. Smith recommends:

  • Avoiding skipping meals
  • Eating healthy foods
  • Reducing processed food consumption
  • Avoiding excessive alcohol intake
  • Having regular chiropractic adjustments
  • Drinking more water
  • Getting more exercise
  • Reducing or eliminating certain medications
