Headaches

Headaches are among the most common disorders of the nervous system. It has been estimated that 47% of the adult population had a headache at least once within last year in general according to the World Health Organisation [1]

Headaches are "underestimated, under-recognized and under-treated throughout the world".

Types of Headaches:

Migraine: A primary headache disorder which is recurrent, often life-long, and characterized by attacks.

Tension Headaches: The most common primary headache disorder.

Cluster Headaches: A primary headache disorder but relatively uncommon.

Medication-overuse Headaches: Caused by chronic and excessive use of medication to treat headache and is the most common secondary headaches.

Headaches usually happen for a reason and for many people chiropractic treatment can be a very effective way of treating headaches.

Headaches can be caused by misalignments in the neck (the cervical spine) or the shoulders so to determine if this is the case, a thorough Consultation is carried out before any treatment is made.
