Headache Treatment - Macquarie Park
Many of us have experienced an episode of a headache at least once in their life. Some of us have experienced headaches in the form of migraines at least one per month. Others may experience headaches on a daily basis.
Common headaches seen at Macquarie Chiro clinic are migraine headaches, tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches (headaches that start at the neck and move to the front of the head), sinus headaches and post traumatic headaches (headaches that occur after injuries in car accidents [whiplash] or sports).
The triggers of such headaches are many. They include sleep disturbances, certain foods like cheese and chocolate, alcohol and smoking, poor posture and tight neck and shoulder muscles and emotional stress.
Headaches are not normal!
Few of the signs and symptoms of headaches and migraines include:
✔ Pain on one or both sides of the head
✔ Pain from the back of the neck to the front or side of the head
✔ Pain that feels dull, throbbing or pulsating
✔ Pain that feels worse with lights or sounds or both
✔ Headaches with dizziness, nausea and/or vomiting
✔ Seeing auras (flashing lights, blurred vision, zigzag lines) before headache onset
✔ If causes of headaches are not relieved at their early stages, they may lead to further complications on a psychological level, including irritability and depression.
We can help alleviate your headache
Because of the variety of causes for headaches and magraines, it is important that treatment is pursued at an early stage to prevent further complications.
The goal of headache treatment and migraine treatment is to
✔ Restore function
✔ Improve strength
✔ Prevent reoccurrence
A combination of chiropractic and supplementary treatments may be effective in treating your headache or migraine. Manual spinal manipulation and exercise rehabilitation are applied in order to get you out of pain, create a great spinal column alignment and restore optimum function in the hope of dealing with the symptoms of migraine or headaches, and prevent their reoccurance.
