How Our Beeliar Chiropractors Can Help Relieve Your Headaches

Chronic or recurring headaches can be debilitating; impacting your mood, overall health, and quality of life. At Beeliar Chiropractic Centre, we’re here to help you achieve relief from headaches using safe and proven chiropractic techniques.

Chiropractic care for headaches offers a non-invasive, drug-free treatment to alleviate your symptoms and prevent future headaches. To begin your treatment, we assess the alignment and mobility of your spine to identify any misalignments or tension that may be contributing to your headaches. From here, we develop a holistic treatment plan to help you get back to enjoying life headache-free.

Chiropractic Adjustment

Spinal manipulation and chiropractic adjustments work to restore proper spinal function, reduce nerve interference, and improve your overall well-being. This form of chiropractic care for headaches has shown promising results, providing natural relief from symptoms and preventing the future onset of headaches.

Combined with soft tissue therapy, chiropractic adjustments offer an effective treatment for managing headaches.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue therapy for headaches involves targeted manual pressure, stretching, and mobilisation techniques to address muscular tension and imbalances. These techniques aim to promote relaxation, alleviate tension, and improve blood flow to help relieve your headache symptoms and address underlying muscular causes.

Combined with chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy offers a comprehensive approach to managing headaches.

Dry needling

Dry needling for headaches is used to help alleviate pain, reduce muscle tension, and improve your overall well-being.

Dry needling needles are inserted into targeted pressure points, stimulating the nerves to release hormones and trigger a healing response from your body.
By targeting specific points related to headache relief, dry needling provides a natural and effective headache treatment.

Causes Of Headaches and Migraines

Headaches are often ignored, with sufferers simply taking painkillers and moving on with their day. However, headaches should be taken seriously as they more often than not are the result of other factors. Headaches may arise from:

  • Muscle tension
  • Poor posture
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Stress
  • Certain foods
  • Environmental triggers

Migraines, on the other hand, are often characterised by intense, throbbing pain, and can be triggered by:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Sensory stimuli
  • Stress
  • Certain foods

By conducting a comprehensive examination, our chiropractors aim to identify any underlying issues contributing to your headaches or migraines.

Types Of Headaches

Tension

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and are usually caused by muscle tension and stress.

At Beeliar Chiropractic Centre, your tension headache treatment may involve a combination of chiropractic adjustments to address spinal misalignments, soft tissue therapy to release muscle tension, and lifestyle modifications to manage stress.

Migraine Headaches

Migraines are severe headaches where sufferers may experience nausea and vomiting as well as sensitivity to light or sound. They also frequently report throbbing pain that worsens with normal activity and are commonly treated by us in clinic.

Our approach involves chiropractic adjustments to address spinal misalignments, soft tissue therapy to relieve muscle tension, and lifestyle modifications to manage triggers.

Cervicogenic

Cervicogenic headaches stem from issues in the neck and cervical spine, and treatments may involve chiropractic adjustments to address spinal misalignments, soft tissue therapy to release muscle tension, and specific exercises to improve your posture and neck mobility.

We may also incorporate techniques such as ultrasound therapy and ergonomic recommendations.
