For some people, headaches and migraines regardless of whether they are related to neck and back pain or not, are an every day occurrence and can have a significant impact on their enjoyment of life. However, all is not lost because treatment can help to overcome pain and prevent headaches for most people by simply addressing the root cause of the pain.
Often, the people we see with constant headaches are due to neck problems or postural issues, but there can be be many causes. We understand that traumatic incidents from a variety of causes, such as traffic collisions or falls during sport can result in headaches from ongoing issues with the muscles and surrounding joints.
As a patient in our clinic, we will work with you to identify where your headaches are coming from and the best course of treatment to help ease your pain. As well as assessing your neck, we frequently look at how the rib cage works and the spine the ribs attach to, and offer exercise and strengthening advice to help you stay fighting fit!
Our approach to treating headaches requires us to not only treat the sore bit, but to treat the whole body. We are trained to use a naturopathic approach to our work, and will work with you to also assess any environmental issues, such as posture and repetitive strains, both at home and at work, or any nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing to your problem. This helps us to make sure that we tackle head pain from all angles.
