woman with aching headHeadaches can range from mildly bothersome to downright debilitating, preventing you from fully engaging in life. There are many causes of headaches, including stress, muscle tension, poor posture and even diet.

Types of Headaches

Here are the common types of headaches that are accompanied by their own unique set of symptoms:

Tension: Often described as a tight band around the forehead or at the back of the head and neck.

Cervicogenic: Often characterised by chronic pain radiating from the neck to the back of the head or behind the eyes.

Migraines: Tend to be severe, often accompanied by nausea or sensitivity to light and sound.

Cluster: Characterised by severe, debilitating pain on one side of the head.

Sinus: Associated with a feeling of pressure in the frontal area.

Chiropractic Approach to Managing Headaches

Those who are seeking a natural approach to headache relief may want to consider chiropractic care as it aims to identify the root cause of your headaches. Chiropractor Dr Laura Priestley will perform a comprehensive assessment first. Once she identifies your headache type, she can craft a unique plan to help you manage your discomfort.

Chiropractic care often involves spinal adjustments to restore normal neck joint movement – potential culprits for many headaches. Additionally, this approach considers elements like posture and how it may be implemented to reduce stress on neck and head areas.

Does Chiropractic Work?

It’s important to understand that chiropractic doesn’t treat anything. Chiropractic adjustments may alleviate head pain caused by tension, which starts in the neck. While every individual is unique, and so is their experience with headaches, chiropractic care has shown positive results for many.

Management at Home

In addition to chiropractic care, there are some things you can do at home to manage your headaches. These include increasing your water intake, implementing stress-reduction techniques, and making changes to improve your posture.
