Headache Treatment – the Riviera Wellbeing approach!
Proper diagnosis is essential! To find the most effective headache treatment we need to understand the underlying cause of your symptoms.
There are many causes of headaches and your Chiropractor is trained to get to the root-cause of the problem and provide effective treatment.
Pain killers mask the symptoms but don’t deal with the cause of your pain, meaning that they will reoccur
The majority of reoccurring headaches are caused by musculo-skeletal issues. Poor posture, muscle tension and limited joint movement in the neck and upper back can cause cervicogenic headaches. Rectification of the underlying issues is usually very straightforward and will result in your problems disappearing
Tension-type headaches are very common, and effect both sides of the forehead and temple region like a tight band. Although not life threatening, tension headaches they can be very debilitating. If this is something you would like help with, we can help you, using a combination of chiropractic, acupuncture, reflexology or soft tissue massage.
Migraines are often triggered by certain food stuffs including caffeine withdrawal, and fermented foods. It is a chronic condition presenting with an intense headache often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and visual disruptions. Along with manipulation your chiropractor may offer acupuncture for migraine headaches and often long lasting favourable results can be obtained.
