Types of Headaches

The three basic categories of headaches are:

  • Tension
  • Cluster
  • Migraine

Pain associated with these headaches is described as sharp, stabbing, dull, throbbing and vice-like.

Causes of Headaches

Problems in the cervical (neck) region of the spine are the main cause for headaches. Most headaches are compiled of a series of traumatic events including postural habits, contact sports, whiplash, occupational tasks, and motor vehicles accidents.  These events cause the cervical spine to become misaligned.  Dr. Bury treats spinal misalignments also known as “vertebral subluxations” that irritate nerves in the neck and cause excessive muscle tension leading to a wide variety of headaches.

Headaches can be triggered by physical, chemical and emotional stress including:

  • Fatigue
  • Stress
  • Noise
  • Fluorescent lights
  • Travel
  • Improper sleep
  • Smoke
  • Food additives (MSG and nitrates)
