Headaches and Chiropractic care

Do you suffer from Migraines? 

A migraine is usually a moderate or severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on 1 side of the head.  Many people also have symptoms such as feeling sick, being sick and increased sensitivity to light or sound.  Migraine is a common health condition, affecting around 1 in every 5 women and around 1 in every 15 men. 

There are several types of migraine, including:

Migraine with aura where there are specific warning signs just before the migraine begins, such as seeing flashing lights.

Migraine without aura the most common type, where the migraine happens without the specific warning signs.

Migraine aura without headache, also known as silent migraine – where an aura or other migraine symptoms are experienced, but a headache does not develop.

How can Chiropractic care help?
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve pain caused by migraines and tension headaches.  Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve the function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage the pain caused by migraines and tension headaches.

Below are some of the health benefits chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustments can provide patients with migraines and tension headaches:
- Reduced pain and discomfort
– Decreased inflammation

- Relief from stress and tension disorders
–  Improved physical function and performance

Some of the techniques your chiropractor will use:
– Activator technique
– Flexion-distraction
– Drop technique
– Direct Thrust Technique
