MIGRAINES AND HEADACHES

MIGRAINES AND HEADACHES AND THEIR RELATION TO NECK PROBLEMS AND THE SPINE

We have seen many patients over the years who report migraines and headaches more than a few times per week and it’s surprising that so many of them say, ‘ . . . but that’s just me.’  This is often because they have come to accept regular migraines and headaches as part of their normal life – sometimes taking heavy pain killing drugs to cover the symptoms.

TYPES OF HEADACHES

There are many types of headaches and it is important to find the cause of the problem.  Pain killing drugs will only stop the message telling you something is wrong, it’s a little like a fire starting in your house and taking the battery out of the smoke alarm instead of putting out the fire.

It is important that the cause is found and corrected.

TO HELP FIND THAT CAUSE OF THE HEAD PAIN WE OFFER:

  • A Private Consultation with the Doctor of Chiropractic at our clinic in South Woodford
  • A Thorough Examination including Neurological, Orthopaedic & Blood Pressure Tests all included
  • X-Rays, if necessary are included too
  • And most importantly Verbal Report of our Findings and thorough Explanation of the X-Rays at a follow up appointment
  • Personalised recommendadtions will be given, which may include streching and exercise advice, plan of treatment and relevant postural and lifestyle recommendations.

After which you should know more about your body and the problems you are experiencing than you ever have before.  Whether you go ahead with treatment as always is entirely your decision.
