Headaches

Your head is pounding, sometimes for hours, days or even weeks. Pain-relieving medications might help, but only provide temporary relief. Over 90% of the population experience headache at some time in their lives. For some though it’s a constant problem. Few know that chiropractic and/or acupuncture, together with key lifestyle changes, can provide immense relief from debilitating headaches. At Advance Chiropractic & Acupuncture Clinic, Hertford, I’ve seen many long-suffering patients win their battles with migraine, tension headache, and other types of headache. Contact us today if you want to win that battle too.

The pain of headache can restrict your life in so many ways. This is especially so when headaches occur frequently, or where episodes are particularly painful.

What Are the Main Types of Headache?

There are many different types of headaches with many different causes. Most are benign, which essentially means they are non-life-threatening and are self-limiting. The most common types of benign headache you might suffer from are:

  1. Tension Headaches
  2. Migraine Headaches
  3. Cluster Headaches
  4. Cervicogenic Headaches

A Chiropractor is Skilled in the Differential Diagnosis of Headache

Side view of a chiropractor doing neck adjustmentIf you come to Advance Chiropractic & Acupuncture Clinic, Hertford with a headache or a history of headaches, we’ll want to find out which type of headache you are suffering from. We’ll ask you detailed questions about your history of headache. We’ll also conduct a meticulous physical examination, using orthopaedic and neurological testing where required.

As part of the physical examination, we’ll also check the function of the spinal joints and muscles in your neck. Poor function here is a common cause of headaches.

Thankfully, it’s pretty rare for a headache to reflect a serious underlying condition, such as a tumour. An important part of our job is to establish where this might be the case and, if so, to refer you quickly to an appropriate specialist. It should be stressed, however, that it is very unusual for patients to come to the clinic with this type of headache.

In our experience though patients often find headache a cause for concern. You’ll be pleased to know that, with the high-level skills, extensive experience and sensitivity Advance Clinic brings to bear on your headache issue, we’re usually able to provide you with the reassurance that many of our patients seek.
