Chiropractic Treatment for Headaches

If you live in Greenwood, Madeley, Marangaroo, Darch & the surrounding areas and you experience the kind of headaches discussed below, come in and see us.

Headaches are something that chiropractors speak to their practice members about every day. They vary widely from an annoying niggle in the background to debilitating pain, which leaves some people bedridden with a bucket beside them. The first step to addressing headaches is to identify the type of headache that has occurred. Headaches can firstly be classified into primary and secondary headaches, with primary headaches being the pain of the headache having no critical underlying pathology that urgently requires further investigation, whereas secondary headaches do have serious underlying pathologies. Chiropractors are well equipped to diagnose and understand the type of headache that is presenting and can provide treatment for the vast majority of people who walk into their office with a headache. If the chiropractor cannot provide treatment for the headache or feels further investigation is required, they will refer the patient to a general practitioner for further investigation.

Primary headaches can be categorised according to their causes and characteristics, with the most common primary headaches being cervicogenic, tension, migraine, and exertion. These all vary in symptoms, and even though their causes can be distinct, utilising a multi-faceted approach to treating a headache is the most effective method for alleviating pain in the long term. As with many other conditions, headaches tend to be an accumulation of physical, chemical, and mental stress on the body, which eventually has the result of pain or symptoms.

Good examples of this include a cervicogenic/muscle tension headache caused by postural stress in front of a computer at work, which can be alleviated by chiropractic adjustments and a stretching program. Additionally, these headaches can be further reduced or taken care of through a reduction in chemical stressors on the body by cutting out sugars and getting adequate hydration.

Along with the same idea, tension-type headaches can be alleviated through chiropractic adjustments and a breath routine to relieve stress, then further alleviated through nutritional changes, getting adequate sun exposure daily, and exercise for improved hormonal balance. 

Gaining an understanding of what the stressors are on the body and how many of them can be contributing factors to headaches, then purposely modifying some of these factors consistently, is the most efficient and safest way to deal with primary headaches. Resorting to medication before modifying lifestyle factors and trying conservative care unnecessarily exposes the body to many harmful side effects. Starting with the basics — getting adequate amounts of sleep, eating non-processed foods, regularly integrating exercise into your lifestyle, getting enough sunlight, and having healthy personal relationships — is essential to stopping recurring pain.

Chiropractic adjustments help to further alleviate stress on the nervous system, meaning the brain can relay information to the body better. One of the benefits of this is pain relief from cervicogenic headaches, tension headaches, and migraines. If recurrent headaches are holding your health and wellness back, chiropractic adjustments could be what your body needs to get back on track.
