Are headaches ruining your day? Tips and tricks to find relief today!

Are you tired of headaches ruining your day? Fear not! We’ve got your back with the ultimate guide to headache disorders. Headaches can be caused by various factors, and not all of them are created equal. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the different types of headaches. 

First up and our personal favourite: the cervicogenic headache. If you feel pain on one side of your head, accompanied by discomfort in your neck and surrounding muscles, you might be dealing with this type of headache. But here’s the good news – this is our bread and butter at Limbr! We love treating cervicogenic headaches with hands-on therapy, so you can feel relief and get back to living your best life. 

Next on our list are tension headaches, the annoying little siblings of headaches. They feel like a constant, dull ache, like a tight band around your head, lasting from 30 minutes to a whole week. But there are plenty of ways to loosen that band and find relief, from over-the-counter pain relievers, relaxation techniques like meditation and yoga, and hands-on therapy such as dry needling and manipulation. 

Now let’s talk migraines! These headaches are like unwanted guests who crash your party and spoil your fun. They typically involve pulsating pain, accompanied by nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and can last up to 72 hours. But don’t worry – there are plenty of treatments available to help you manage your symptoms, including mindfulness of food and stress triggers, medication, lifestyle changes and complementary therapies. 

Last but not least are cluster headaches, the big bullies of headaches. They’re known for being the most painful type of headache, with a burning sensation that can last for up to 180 minutes. Cluster periods can last for weeks to months, followed by remission for months to years. You’ll want to be mindful of high stressors and common triggers, but don’t be intimidated! There are treatments available, including medication and complementary therapies. 

Whilst I’ve still got you let’s talk about the serious stuff when it comes to headaches. While most headaches are nothing to worry about, it’s always important to keep an eye out for any warning signs that may indicate a more serious condition. If you experience symptoms such as fever, severe nausea, tinnitus, numbness in your face, arms, or legs, or personality changes, it’s crucial to seek further medical attention. 

Now, we want to reassure you that these symptoms are rare, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. So, if you’re experiencing any of these warning signs along with your headache, don’t hesitate to reach out to a healthcare professional. Remember, your health is always the top priority!
