Headache Relief in Gaithersburg, Potomac, Urbana, and Clarksburg, MD

You have probably heard that sitting is the new smoking, or of a relatively new phenomenon known as "text neck," which results from spending too much time bent over a phone or tablet. As people become more and more sedentary and interacting with devices, the posture suffers and the risk for ergonomic injuries and other health problems increases. If you are suffering headaches due to neck strain or tension, a chiropractor may be able to provide relief.

There are a few types of headaches:

  • Tension headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Sinus headaches
  • Rebound headaches
  • Migraines

Tension headaches are the most common type and affect almost everyone at some point. Tension headaches stem from common lifestyle factors like poor diet, lack of sleep, stress and anxiety, lack of exercise and poor posture. Cluster headaches are commonly confused with seasonal allergies because they tend to occur at a certain time of year and may cause similar symptoms such as watery eyes and nasal pain and congestion, but they are actually believed to be caused by irritation and strain of the trigeminal nerve in the face. Tension and cluster headaches are the most likely to benefit from chiropractic treatments like spinal adjustment, massage, lifestyle change recommendations, and physical therapy.
