Migraines, tension, cluster, stress and menopausal are different classifications of headaches. It is one of the most common and painful conditions that people in western society contend with today. It is also one of the most common reasons we at Plainview Rehabilitation are consulted.
Headaches are becoming more common today than ever before. There are many environmental reasons for this. Traumatic injury is the most obvious. However, the problem that is causing a swell of new cases is very simply, new technology. That's right, our beloved computers, cell phones (texting), PDA's, IPODS' and handheld gaming devices are wreaking havoc on our cervical spines, (our necks). Improper use is much more damaging than overuse. It creates muscle sprain/strain, subluxation, degenerative arthritis, stenosis and more. The first symptom that you will notice is usually headaches. Headaches are commonly followed by dizziness, light headedness, floaters in the eyes, metallic tastes in the mouth, ringing in the ears, numbness of the face, nausea and others.
The reason for this is that our bodies were designed to hold a specific form in order to enable us to perform specific functions. Improper use of common 'devices' is destroying that brilliant design. The longer you continue to abuse your spine, the worse your problem is going to get.
Painkillers work great, but they are not good for you and only mask your problem. Long term use of most medication of this type can create problems for worse than the headaches you initially took them for. Kidney, liver disease and addiction top the list. (just read the labels)
