Renew Chiropractic: Headache relief in Lakewood
Dr. Jumper has changed my life by providing me relief from cluster and migraine headaches.
Cluster headaches result in periodic episodes of intense head-splitting pain. This condition is a neurological condition that is one of the most painful types of headaches. They often strike in cyclical patterns that can go on for weeks. The person will have frequent bouts of cluster headaches and then they will stop for a period. Chiropractic treatment can be very helpful in minimizing the resultant pain and allow patients to work, play socialize, and sleep better.
Doctors do now know why cluster headaches occur. They may be related to the hypothalamus, they may be linked to seasonal changes, or a by-product of spinal misalignment, called vertebral subluxations.
Some patients report that their headaches are triggered by certain stimuli, although these triggers do not seem to play a significantly large role in these cluster headaches. Drinking alcohol beverages, smoking tobacco, specific food products, stress and anxiety, and bright lights have all been named as triggers in producing headaches.
