According to the World Health Organization, roughly 50% of the global population is affected by headaches and headache type disorders. Among these individuals, 30% reported migraines.
Additionally, headaches that last 15 days or more per month affect 1.7-4% of the world’s adult population.
Do you suffer from headaches or migraines? Does the pain keep you from doing activities that you love?
Here’s some facts to keep in mind:
- The brain doesn’t have pain receptors! The structures around the brain and skull, however, do feel pain.
- A headache occurs when there are mixed signals between the brain, blood vessels, and nearby nerves.
- When the suboccipital nerves are compressed or obstructed, it can cause blood vessels to swell. This increased blood flow that leads to swelling can cause increased sensation of pressure in the head.
