Chiropractic treatment of Headaches
Headaches are very common and the vast majority are not dangerous although they are often painful and disruptive to daily life.
Headaches can affect every part of your life whether it is your ability to concentrate at work, take part in your hobbies or how you get on with your family and friends. If you live with headaches regularly your idea of ‘normal’ can become skewed. It may be common but it is not normal to have headaches daily or several times a week and if you do then you should seek advice.
Chiropractors can help with headaches that are caused by a problem with the joints and muscles in the neck. This type of headache is known as a cervicogenic headache. If there is a problem with the way joints or muscles of your neck are moving then a chiropractor can improve the function of these joints which may help your headaches to improve.
Chiropractic treatment of Migraines
Migraines are a form of headache. They tend to be very painful and are often associated with sensitivity to light, smells and sounds. People can feel nauseous and sick with them and often have to take to bed in a darkened room until they pass. Some people will know that they have particular triggers such as foods or drinks that will cause a migraine, other causes can be hormonal.
About 25% of migraines sufferers will have an aura before the migraine starts. This is often zig zags in front of the eyes or a sensitivity to light but can also be numbness, confusion and dizziness. Chiropractic treatment aims to restore normal movement to the muscles and joints of the spine. This can help in the prevention of migraine.
