Headache and Migraine Treatment in Macquarie Park & Ryde
Many of us have experienced a migraine or headache episode at least once in their life. Some of us have experienced them at least once per month, others may experience them on a daily basis.
Common headaches seen at Macquarie Chiro are:
Cervicogenic (headaches that start at the neck and move to the front of the head)
Post traumatic (headaches that occur after injuries in car accidents or sports, such a whiplash)
The triggers are many and varied. They can include sleep disturbances, certain foods like cheese and chocolate, alcohol and smoking, poor posture, tight neck and shoulder muscles and emotional stress.
Migraines & 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.
