Headaches and Migraines

If you suffer from headaches, this can be a serious quality-of-life issue. Fortunately, you don’t need to deal with the pain on your own. At Mindarie Chiropractic Centre, our chiropractors work with you personally to identify the root cause of your headache.

Types of Headache Pain

Chiropractic may help with some of the most common types of headaches—

  • Tension—feels like a tight band around the head.

  • Sinus—originating in the sinus cavities. When they fill with liquid, you may feel changes in pressure in the head.

  • Cervicogenic—originates in the neck. Feels like the pain is in an area of the head and/or face. Contributing factors could be family history of headaches, neck stiffness, or stress.

  • Migraine—often have pain on one side of the head. Symptoms may include nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.

What to Expect

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive and drug-free approach to addressing headaches, focused on addressing the underlying cause of headaches, rather than just managing the symptoms. Misalignments or subluxations in the spine may cause tension in the neck and head.

 

Adjustments realign the spine to relieve the tension, and may also help improve blood flow and reduce inflammation, which may help relieve the headache.

Research shows chiropractic care may reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches, including migraines.

Preventing Headaches

Our doctors discuss lifestyle advice, such as exercise and diet changes, to help prevent headaches from occurring in the first place. Regular chiropractic care may also help improve overall spinal health and reduce the likelihood of future headaches.
