There are two main types of headaches, tension and migraines headaches.
Dr. Wade Explains the Cause of Headaches
Most Headaches are Tension Related or from Old Injuries
Tension headaches involve abnormal pressure and stress in the upper neck or back of the head. Irritation of the spinal joints and nerves at the base of the skull cause pain in the back of the head.
Migraine headaches involve circulation from the vertebral artery which travels through the spinal vertebra into the base of the brain. The circulation can be affected by abnormal nerve stimulation by the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous systems controls the dilation or constriction of arteries.
Tension headaches are characterized by:
- Pain at the base of the skull
- Increased pain with movement of the head
- Pain in the temporal or side regions of the head
Migraine headaches are characterized by:
- Severe pain on one or both sides of the head
- Upset stomach
- Blurred vision
