About Headache Pain

Headaches are symptoms of pains anywhere in the head or neck.

They can be migraine, tension type, or cluster in nature, and whilst some headaches can be very serious, most are not.

Headaches can affect concentration, energy levels, and activities of daily living.

Our Approach to Headache Pain

Cervicogenic headaches arise from mechanical restriction and dysfunction within the vertebrae in the neck and surrounding muscles, which then affects the nerve supply to the head and neck. This is something we see a lot of. One of the common referral patterns we find is for the symptoms to start at the base of the skull, then travel up to the back of the head and into the temples and around the eyes.

Though a lot of people take medication when they have a headache, Chiropractic adjustments can be very effective in reducing pain and improving the range of motion by providing stretches, rehabilitative exercises, ergonomic advice, and spinal adjustments, which all help to reduce the frequency and severity of headaches, and in many cervicogenic cases, eliminate them altogether.

When I first visited I was very down about the back pain I was suffering to the point where I was really tearful. Alicia made me feel that it was ok to cry and it didn’t feel silly. After 4 months of treatment I am better than ever.

First Time Visitors

Relief Care

Our first goal is to relieve your symptoms as quickly as possible. The severity of your condition will determine the length of this phase. Typically, the number of visits in this phase is frequent and can involve multiple visits to the centre each week.

Rehabilitative / strengthen and corrective phase

During this phase of care, the goal is to remove the root cause of your problem and to restore optimal function. This phase of care is also dependent upon the severity of the problem. The frequency of care can still be multiple visits per week, but unlikely to be as frequent as the relief phase of care.

Wellness Care

Once your body has had the chance to heal, we believe it is important to continue with wellness care by having periodic adjustments to help prevent future problems and enable your body to continue to function at its most optimal level. Your lifestyle, health goals and practitioner’s advice will determine the frequency of care for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my headaches go away?

This is dependent upon the cause of your headaches. Headaches can come and go. That is not to say that the problem has gone away when the symptoms have. Headaches should always be investigated, and any untoward causes ruled out. As Chiropractors we have seen and helped thousands of people over the years suffering from cervicogenic headaches (headaches which arise from the neck). 

How many headaches are normal/ are headaches normal?

Contrary to popular belief, headaches are not normal! Symptoms of any sort are your body‘s way of communicating to you that there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Headaches should not be ignored.

Can headaches be caused by neck problems?

Yes. We have seen thousands of instances where the cause of the headaches has been neck related. Problems in the neck can refer pain into the head. 

Some of the most common types of headaches are:

  1. Sinus headaches, where pain is located in the sinuses;
  2. Cluster headaches, where pain is in or around one eye;
  3. Tension headaches, which can feel like a tight band constricting the head;
  4. Migraines, where pain can affect the vision and cause nausea.
How can I prevent headaches?

To help prevent headaches that are cervicogenic (arising from the neck) in nature, limit the time you spend on tablets, computers and laptops. Take frequent breaks if sitting for long periods. Drink plenty of water and limit your caffeine and alcohol intake; dehydration headaches are real! Have your posture assessed by a Chiropractor to determine if there are any misalignments in your body that can result in headaches which can be rectified.
