5 awful affects of Headaches…

OK, well number 1 should be the pain of the headache itself, but let’s face it, headaches can cause flow on issues in your life when left untreated.

  1. When you miss out on fun because a Headache starts

    “Sorry guys, my headaches have returned and I can’t have a social life this week.”


  2. When you work at a computer screen all day and your headache worsens, but you still have work to do!

    “I think this computer screen is making my headache worse, but I can’t leave”


  3. When someone offers advice like “you just need to relax”

    “You try relaxing with a headache”

  4. When you still have a family to cook and care for

    “Cereal for dinner night kids!”

  5. When quiet sounds feel like a direct brain scratch

    “Me asking people to be quieter is too loud”

If you’re suffering from headaches Chiropractic may be a solution. Please speak to us about an assessment today.

Chiropractic is fast becoming a recognised health choice in the care of headaches providing a natural, drug free treatment with proven results.

You are certainly not alone, with between 75 and 90 per cent of the population suffering one or more headaches in any one year.

The range of causes for the common headache varies from neck, sinus, dental and eye problems to metabolic and hormonal disorders.

Because headaches are so common, most people think that getting a headache is a normal part of life. This is simply not true. Headaches are a sign that something is wrong.

One study, conducted at Macquarie University, chiropractic adjustments to the spine significantly reduced headaches in 71 per cent of the people surveyed. The frequency, duration, severity and amount of medication all decreased markedly.

Essentially, Chiropractic care is effective in headache management because it corrects imbalances in the neck and spine which are often the cause of headaches. Chiropractors can use specific, gentle spinal adjustments to correct the imbalances to alleviate headaches and can also provide lifestyle advice on helping to prevent their reoccurrence.
