Are You Suffering Headaches or Migraines?

Headaches are an all too common problem and the odd one now and again is little cause for concern. However, some headaches can be severe like migraines and can have quite debilitating symptoms or for some people the frequency of the headaches is more than can be coped with.

Chiropractic can often be the answer, particularly when the headaches are being caused by improper function of the joints of the neck (cervicogenic). Both tension-type and migraine type headaches can be caused by problems with the neck and, by improving the movement in the joints, chiropractors can often help resolve the sufferer’s headaches.

Remember, you don’t have to wait until you’ve got a headache to visit a chiropractor – because they are concerned with the underlying cause, they will be able to detect whether your neck is the contributing factor with the tests they perform.

Common Causes of Headaches

Some of the causes of headache we commonly find are:

  • Stress
  • Prolonged postural stress e.g. from sitting at a computer for too long
  • Poor sleep position
  • Teeth clenching or grinding

What Our Patients Say

“Summer 2011, I was suffering from terrible chronic tension headache at the back of my head which prevented me from going out for almost 3months and I had lost some weight. I had undergone several sessions of physiotherapy as well as acupuncture, all of which only helped me on a short term basis, so I decided to try chiropractic treatment. I started with Julian in September 2011, which was when I was at my worst. I initially started having treatment twice a week, which involved strengthening my core body as well as helping me with my posture all of which had contributed to my chronic headaches. Immediately there was a change and my headaches were becoming more manageable which is when Julian introduced some exercises for me to do at home as well as getting me to change some of my sitting and computing habits.It has been almost 6 months now and my headaches are extremely infrequent- almost nonexistent! On the odd occasion when I do get them, I have the exercises Julian gave me which help relieve the pressure enormously. After suffering from the headaches on a consistent basis for so long, I never thought I would be able to feel myself again but am definitely on the road to recovery thanks to Julian.” Sahar Beyad
