Headaches

Many people that come to see me suffering with headaches often believe they just have to put up with them, and they are just part of life. So often we see headaches improve and their frequency reduced by treating mechanical irritation in the neck, upper back, jaw and shoulders which chiropractic care can help hugely with.

Headaches Might Be Common, But It Doesn’t Mean They Are Normal

Don’t be fooled into thinking that because the pain is in your head, the root of the problem must also be in your head – the spine has a lot to answer for and in many instances spinal issues are triggering pain elsewhere in the body!

As headaches vary in severity and length, sometimes it can be hard to know whether it’s worth seeking professional help.  We would suggest that it’s better to have your headaches checked if you’re unsure.  We recommend that a persistent headache, which is ongoing for more than a few days, should be looked into.

So if you’re suffering from any symptoms, which are causing you pain, or you’d just like to improve your posture, strength, flexibility and feel energised again, don’t hesitate to book your chiropractic consultation today.

Ignoring pain could make your condition worse and harder to treat and in turn, prolong your recovery.  We can help you live a life without pain so you can start enjoying life again.

How Chiropractic Can Help Treat Headache Pain

Chiropractic along with postural/ergonomic advice is a proven approach for many types of headaches like tension type headache ,headache from spinal origin (cervicogenic headaches) and Migraines. Occasionally, multidisciplinary management with other specialists is required and a team approach is utilised.

The approach to patients suffering migraine headaches may include combinations of spinal manipulative therapy, soft tissue therapies (myofascial release, massage, trigger point therapies, etc), rehabilitation/exercises, ergonomic advice, lifestyle management, and nutritional counseling.

Evidence suggests that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, improves. migraine and cervicogenic headaches.
