Headache Q & A

Ward Chiropractic

What are the signs of a headache?

It depends on the type of headache you have and why they’re occurring. Headaches can affect just one part or side of your head, or they can cause more widespread pain in your head. You might have a dull headache that lingers all day, or you might have one that causes more of a throbbing pain that gets worse at times, such as when you lean down or turn your head.

Why do I get frequent headaches?

Frequent headaches can happen for many reasons, including the following:

  • Stress
  • Poor posture that causes muscle tension
  • Hunger
  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • Certain foods
  • Exercise
  • Underlying health conditions, such as high blood pressure or sinus problems
  • Genetic factors that increase your risk of getting headaches


Dr. Ward will evaluate you to find out what’s causing your headaches. That helps him come up with a tailored, efficient treatment plan for ameliorating your headaches.

What types of headaches are there?

The kind of pain you have and the times you have it can help you figure out what kind of headaches you’re getting.

  • Cluster headaches usually affect one side of your head and occur in cycles
  • Tension headaches typically affect the front of your head and flare up near the end of the day
  • Migraines usually cause severe pain on one side of your head and can happen at any time
  • Secondary headaches occur from underlying conditions, such as dehydration or infections

How does Dr. Ward treat headaches?

Dr. Ward offers chiropractic care to ease headaches. This treatment method is a noninvasive way to relieve headache pain. When you have chiropractic treatments done, Dr. Ward brings the spinal discs in your upper spine into the correct position to remove pressure on nerves in the area. That helps relieve headache symptoms and reduces your risk of having recurring headaches.

Are chiropractic adjustments painful?

Chiropractic adjustments usually don’t cause any pain. Dr. Ward makes these adjustments with care and ensures that you’re in a comfortable position during these treatments. Once he finishes, you might have some soreness afterward, but this is usually slight and always temporary.
