Chiropractor for Headaches

Do you suffer from headache and migraine pain? If you're looking for more information on your headache and migraine pain, please read on.

Pain experienced during a headache is nature’s warning signal that something is wrong, like a fire alarm signalling danger. Consider this: would routinely taking a headache tablet for persistent headache pain ever address the cause of your headaches or just mask the symptoms?

Around 20% of the population suffer from chronic headache pain (Bryans).  Studies suggests that chiropractic care, including chiropractic adjustments, improve some migraine and cervicogenic headaches (Bryans et al.). 


How does a chiropractor help with headaches?

Chiropractors can help alleviate headaches by addressing the underlying musculoskeletal issues that may be contributing to the problem. Headaches may be caused by tension or misalignment in the neck or spine, which can put pressure on nerves and cause pain.

During your consultation at The Back Clinic, our fully qualified and licensed chiropractors will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if there are any misalignments or imbalances in your spine or neck. They may then use a combination of spinal adjustments, massage, and other therapies to restore proper alignment and function to the affected areas.

By improving joint mobility and reducing tension in the muscles and nerves, chiropractic care can help alleviate headache pain and prevent future episodes. Chiropractic care may also be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as stress management techniques, to provide a comprehensive approach to headache relief.


Common Types of Headache Pain

There are many types of headaches. Here are the most common that we see:

  • Tension headaches
  • Cervicogenic (neck) headaches
  • Migraine headaches

Some types of headache pain can be caused by muscle strains and tension in the neck, whereas others may be caused by postural concerns. Both of these causes can commonly be addressed by chiropractic care.


Certain types of headaches

Some headaches are considered 'red flags' that may indicate a more sinister concern and should be referred out to a specialist for follow up. Most are less serious and can be helped with a variety of treatment approaches.


Chiropractic Study

Chiropractic may be able to provide relief from certain types of headache pain. 

"In a study conducted at Macquarie University, specific chiropractic adjustments to the spine significantly reduced migraines in 71% of the people surveyed. The frequency, duration, severity and amount of medication all decreased markedly." (Tuchin et al.)
