Headaches are a debilitating condition that affect many people at some point in their lives. As they are so common, people think headaches are normal. However, headaches are NOT normal! Some headaches have a serious underlying problem that needs addressing. Pain killers are a Band-Aid approach to headaches- taking away the pain but not the problem.
There are many different types of headaches, and the treatment varies depending on the underlying cause. Headaches can be triggered by a variety of reasons including poor posture, stress, injury and medications. Mechanical causes of headaches are often relieved by manual treatment- soft tissue therapy and manipulation/mobilisation. A thorough history and examination can determine the cause of your headache, and further diagnostic tests are sometimes required. Once a diagnosis is made, the correct treatment can then be administered. Chiropractic can be a very effective form of treatment for headaches.
