These types of aches start slowly and gradually and are often the result of stress or bad posture. They can last for minutes or days and are usually described as a dull ache on one or both sides of the head. A common cause for this pain is tension in the upper back and neck.
Chiropractors adjust the top cervical vertebrae so that they return to normal motion or position and no longer send pain signals.
Migraines are intense and throbbing aches that are associated with nausea and sensitivity to light or noise. These head pains are caused by constriction and then dilation of the blood vessels in the brain. The decrease in blood flow and then a rapid increase of blood pressure in the head lead to a pounding ache.
