Headache & Migraine Relief in Northcote

Headaches and migraines can be debilitating, especially when they become chronic health problems. These painful conditions prevent us from working, enjoying our hobbies and loved ones, and getting through the basic day-to-day responsibilities of our lives.

Research shows that headaches and migraines are commonly caused by the dysfunction of the brainstem, which is located within the first and second bones of your spine at the top of your neck. We adjust the upper neck vertebrae to the best position possible, reorganising and resetting the brainstem and helping alleviate headaches and migraines.

What Causes Your Headache or Migraine?

There are several reasons why you may be suffering from headaches and migraines. Whether they’ve come on over time, suddenly, or can be pinpointed to a recent head injury, chiropractic adjustments have been found to help:

  • Tension headaches – cause mild to moderate pain, like a tight band around the head (a squeeze or a tightening). Stress, inadequate sleep, and poor posture can cause this type of headache.
  • Sinus headaches – are a symptom of sinus infections, which cause pressure and pain in your face. Having a cold or allergies increases your risk of sinus infections and headaches. The pain is typically a constant dull ache.
  • Cluster headaches – are very intense and occur in patterns or clustered groups. Bouts of frequent attacks, known as cluster periods, may last from weeks to months and are usually followed by long periods of relief. The pain is usually centred over one eye, temple, or forehead accompanied by symptoms such as nasal discharge or red or tearing eyes. They can be caused by alcohol, strong smells, exercising or overheating, and smoking.
  • Migraine headaches – vary in intensity and can often be accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and sound. They can cause throbbing in one particular area of the head and can vary in intensity. They can be caused by hormonal changes, certain foods and drinks, stress and even exercise.
  • Concussion headaches – are often caused by misalignments in the vertebrae in your neck. When these vertebrae become misaligned, it interferes with your nervous system and causes various symptoms, like nausea and vomiting, dizziness, and light or noise irritation.

How Structural Chiropractic Helps

Structural adjustments of the entire body and guided movement rehabilitation allow the brain and body to grow stronger and fully functional from deep within.

Adjustments will correct spinal curvatures, which corrects joint movement and muscle strength, reduces muscle tightness and tension, and decreases destruction of joints, bones, discs and nerves. Together, this alleviates chronic headache pain. It will help the sinuses to drain more efficiently and prevent recurrent blockages and infections that lead to headaches.

And, when you’ve suffered a head injury, chiropractic adjustments restore proper motion to the spine’s joints, allowing the nervous system to flow and function at its best. The body and brain can heal properly when the nervous system functions correctly.
