頭痛, 偏頭痛?

頭痛, 偏頭痛?
偏頭痛(Migraine Headache)是一種病因不明、反覆發作的一種頭痛。偏頭痛的特徵包括:疼痛集中在前額、枕骨部或頸部,有可能出現於頭部的一側或左右兩側,患者常感到噁心、嘔吐怕光怕吵;此外,走動、上下樓梯或頭晃動都會令痛楚加劇。偏頭痛的患者以女性居多,病發最常見的年齡為三十五至四十歲。 頭痛有可能是情緒緊張或過度疲勞的反映,亦可以是身體內部患有嚴重疾病的訊號,所以不可忽視。可能引發頭痛的原因相當多,較常見的成因包括脊骨錯位、長期姿勢不良、頸椎關節病、脊椎手術後遺症、意外受傷後遺症、情緒因素影響、睡眠不足、血糖過低、鼻竇炎、糖尿病、腦出血、腦膜炎、腦壓上升,腦部腫瘤、心血管病疾病、中風…….等等,無法詳細盡錄。 香港比較常見的多屬頸源性 (Neck), 壓力性(Tension), 頭痛亦有年輕化趨勢, 越來越多中小學生因頸源性頭痛來求診, 此外, 亦有部分幼稚園生和中小學生因學業壓力或太多課外學習而出現壓力性頭痛來求診, 父母們實在不容忽視. 許多調查研究表明,脊椎神經治療對緊張性頭痛非常有效,因頭痛起源於頸部。以上那麼多種頭痛, 脊骨矯正尤其對改善TMJ, Migraines, Neck & Tension這四類更為有效. 在2001年發布的一份報告,發現起源於頸部的頭痛,脊椎神經治療是非常有效的治療,幾乎立即改善頭痛,比一般藥物處理有明顯改善,副作用較少和較持久。這項研究還發現,停止脊椎神經及止痛藥治療四周後的病人,脊椎神經治療對比止痛藥治療比較持續和受益。 每個人的情況不同,適當的身體檢查才能確定脊椎護理是否可以幫助病人康服。然而,矯正第一和第二節頸椎,在大多數情況下,偏頭痛和緊張性頭痛都有顯著的改善。加上矯正頸椎和胸椎之間的脊骨,大多數情況下對不同頭痛也有幫助。至於偏頭痛,更要配合食物和生活方式改善,以避免觸發偏頭痛。 Dr Jen
