Your SW Calgary Choice for Headache Treatment and Prevention!

Most people have an occasional headache, but frequent headaches that affect your ability to sleep or get on with your day can be disabling. Studies have shown that chiropractic care may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck, as well as migraines and cluster headaches. Chiropractical is proud to offer treatment and prevention strategies to decrease their intensity and their frequency.

What are the Different Types of Headaches?

The three most common types are:

1.Tension – Tension headaches often present as bilateral head pain with a pressing, tightening, band-like tension around the head that is mild to moderate in intensity. They can last for minutes to days. There are no associated nausea or vomiting symptoms, but there may be sensitivity to light or noise, and there may be some tenderness to touch around the head.

2.Migraines  – Migraines usually present as unilateral, pulsating pain on one side of the head of moderate to severe intensity. Migraines are commonly accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and sound, and are recurrent and can last anywhere from 4-72 hours.

3.Cervicogenic – Cervicogenic headaches originate from the neck, though the pain is perceived in one or more areas of the head, face, or both.

How Can Chiropractic Care help with Headaches?

Evidence supports the notion that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulative therapy and mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and exercise, can be an effective treatment for tension, migraine, and cervicogenic headaches. Chiropractors can assess, diagnose, and manage them using such things as:

  • Manual therapy
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Modalities including electoral stimulation, acupuncture and ultrasound
  • Advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercise, and relaxation techniques
  • Rehabilitation
  • Lifestyle changes, including nutritional advice, and education
  • Referral and co-management

Our dedicated Chiropractical Team is here to help patients alleviate headache symptoms. Chiropractic care is a proven, safe alternative to conventional medicine, and should be one of the first lines of defense when addressing headaches of any kind.
