Headaches are one of the most common ailments to affect Australians, with between 75 and 90 per cent of the population suffering one or more headaches in any one year.
The range of causes for the common headache varies from neck, sinus, dental and eye problems to metabolic and hormal disorders.
Because headaches are so common, most people think that getting a headache is a normal part of life. This is simply not true. Headaches are a sign that something is wrong.
Chiropractic is fast becoming a recognised health choice in the care of headaches providing a natural, drug free treatment with proven results.
One study, conducted at Macquarie University, specific chiropractic adjustment to the spine significantly reduced migrains in 71 per cent of the people surveyed. The frequency, duration, severity and amount of medication all decreased markedly.
Essentially, Chiropractic care is effective in headache management because it corrects imbalances in the neck and spine which are often the cause of headaches. Chiropractors can use specific, gentle spinal adjustments to correct the imbalances to alleviate headaches and can also provide lifestyle advice on helping to prevent their re-occurence.
