Find Relief From Nagging Headaches That Does Not Involve Popping Pills or Visiting Your Doctor!
Headaches are an unfortunate phenomenon that many people suffer with on an ongoing basis. They can be caused by stress, injury / impact, high blood pressure, or other medical problems. The important thing to remember is that headaches can often be caused by more than one thing, but most of the time their source can be found in the neck. Sometimes people sleep awkwardly and wake up with headaches, whereas for some they slowly get worse throughout their day while starring at a computer screen at work.
Headaches can also lead to feelings of nausea, dizziness and fatigue. Once these symptoms begin to take over, it can be very difficult to concentrate and accomplish daily tasks. These symptoms can greatly interfere with these day to day tasks and when that happens people begin to realize that they have to take action. Some folks venture to see their doctor but are often not given an explanation, or are given pain killers that they really don’t want to take.
Does this sound like you? If so, you are not alone, and we are here to help. We hear this kind of story almost every day from our patients suffering from headaches and migraines.
Most people believe their headaches are lasting longer than they should or used to in the past, and there are many reasons why that could be happening to you too:
- You thought they would go away on their own and decided to ignore them.
- You were told that everyone gets headaches so you should just put up with them.
- You went to your doctor but were only offered pills that caused other side effects.
- You saw a health care professional such as a Physiotherapist or Chiropractor, but even they did not have any answers for you and after a few visits you gave up.
- You tried adjusting your pillow because you kept waking up with headaches, but even that did not help.
If any of the above has happened to you, we would like to invite you to speak with our doctor in person or on the phone by booking a FREE 15 Minute consultation. Our doctor will be able to offer helpful advice regarding the next steps you should take so you can stop wasting your time, and begin discovering a solution.
The following are the most common types of headaches that we can help with:
Dull pain across your forehead, or at the back of your head and down your neck are tension type headaches. Patients suffering with tension headaches often report that it feels as if their skull is being squeezed. They can last for a few minutes or a few days and are often associated with poor sleep, trouble focusing at work and stressful events.
The good news is that these types of headaches respond well to Chiropractic, Physiotherapy and Massage. Tight muscles can worked on, stretches can be assigned and adjustments to your spine can be made in order to help you recover from tension headaches.
Migraines are very painful headaches on one half of the head that last for up to 72 hours. The pain experienced is usually throbbing or pulsating in nature and can result in nausea, vomiting, vision trouble or sensitivity to smell.
Patterns of migraines can vary greatly, but are often severe in nature and interfere with work and life.
At our clinic, we work to figure out the cause of your migraines first and offer a variety of focused treatments that respond well to migraines. Functional Range Release (insert link to FR page across the previous three words) techniques, performed by our Chiropractor, combined with gentle adjustments to the neck have been shown to be very effective for migraine relief.
Our Chiropractor, Physiotherapist,
and Massage Therapist, can help.
