Headaches Q & A

What are headaches?

Headaches and migraines, which are severe forms of headaches, involve pain that affects your head or neck. 

Headaches might be mild or severe and short-lived or long-lasting. They can feel like throbbing pain, dull aching pain, or pain on just one side of your head.

What causes headaches?

If you experience headaches regularly, common causes may include:

  • Stress

  • Alcohol

  • Certain foods

  • Sleeping problems

  • Poor posture

  • Dehydration

  • Skipping meals

  • Strenuous exercise

  • Underlying health conditions

  • Allergies

Tumors and traumatic brain injuries can also cause headaches. If frequent headaches negatively affect your everyday life, schedule an appointment with Complete Wellness for an evaluation.

How are headaches diagnosed?

Your Complete Wellness specialist asks questions about your symptoms to determine the type and severity of your headaches. They complete an exam and may use imaging tests, such as CT scans, to rule out more serious health complications before treatment.

What is the treatment for headaches?

To treat headaches naturally without addictive pain medicines, your Complete Wellness specialist might recommend one or more of the following headache treatments:

  • Brain tapping - Brain tapping, or forced meditation, helps relax your entire body. It relieves stress, improves sleeping problems, and boosts energy levels.

  • Dietary supplements - Taking dietary supplements can optimize your overall health and wellness, improve joint health, and reduce your risk of nutritional deficiencies, injuries, and pain.

  • Chiropractic adjustments - Adjusting your spine into proper alignment, your Complete Wellness provider uses controlled pressure to correct spinal issues associated with widespread musculoskeletal pain.

  • Massage therapy - Massage therapy uses manual pressure to relieve chronic pain, tension, and stress. It enhances healing and helps prevent future pain associated with fibromyalgia.
