Chiropractic Treatment For Headache & Migraine
Headache & migraine types & treatments
Some major types, causes and how we treat them at our Chatswood chiropractic clinic.
Tension Type Headache
Tension type headache refers to pain and dysfunction of the neck muscles which attached on and around the skull.
Tension headache may be associated with poor posture, however stress and anxiety are large predictors of pain in this condition.
Chiropractic care helps to reduce this tension, improve your posture and strengthen the neck muscles.
Cervicogenic headache refers to pain in the head which is due to the irritation of the neck joints.
These headaches can often be reproduced by moving the neck, and in some instances be associated with dizziness or vertigo.
Chiropractic care has been shown to improve the pain and disability associated with cervicogenic headache.
Migraines are a complex chronic pain disorder, characterised by headache, sensitivity to light and complete functional disability.
Migraines may be triggered by a number of factors, such as certain foods, stress, hormonal changes, as well as pain or irritation in the neck. Dysfunction in the upper neck may unnecessarily contribute to the pain and disability experienced.
Chiropractic care aims to reduce the tension and dysfunction in the neck, as well as address the many triggers associated, in an effort to reduce the intensity, frequency and duration of migraines.
