Headaches – A Chiropractic Approach

Headaches – A Chiropractic Approach

Headaches detrimentally affect all Canadians at least once in their lifetime. Yet, the specific reasons for the cause of the headache differs between individuals.  By definition a Headache is a pain in the head with the pain being above the eyes or the ears, behind the head (occipital), or in the back of the upper neck. Headache, like chest pain or back ache, has many causes.

All headaches are considered primary headaches or secondary headaches. According to medicinenet.com Primary headaches are not associated with other diseases. Examples of primary headaches are migraine headaches, tension headaches, and cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are caused by other diseases. The associated disease may be minor or major.

Headaches can be triggered from a variety of different environments, food, stress, dehydration, and other reasons. In addition, headaches or pain in the head and upper cervical region may be caused directly from muscles, joints, ligaments, or nerves.

How may a Chiropractor help?

A Chiropractor will assess, diagnose and manage a treatment plan for your headaches. Chiropractic Doctors (DC) regularly treat headaches. Most prominently, scientific studies have provided evidence pinpointing that chiropractic care, including spinal adjustments, may be an effective treatment for cervicogenic and tension-type headaches. Furthermore, chiropractic care may help to decrease both the intensity and frequency of migraines. After a full, in-depth assessment has been conducted, the chiropractor may recommend manual therapies, modalities and lifestyle recommendations including rehabilitation. Each patient will be provided with an individualized plan pertaining specifically to the patient’s needs and examination findings. Various treatment options may include:

  • Patient education and reassurance
  • Spinal Adjustments
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Modalities including Acupuncture and Laser
  • Rehabilitation and exercises
  • Ergonomic and lifestyle changes
  • Referral and co-management
