Headaches are a very common reason why people seek chiropractic treatment. There are many causes of headaches many of which involve the spine and more specifically the neck.
Of course, many other factors can contribute to headaches these can include diet, exercise, water consumption, sleeping posture, ergonomics (or work posture), jaw or TMJ problems, eye and vision problems, sinus issues and your stress levels.
There can also be more sinister causes of headaches and these need to be excluded before your Chiropractor will proceed with Chiropractic care. Further testing may be required such as X-Rays, CT-Scans or MRI Scans. Treatment involves relieving the symptoms and addressing the causes of the headaches. In many cases results can be seen within weeks and long-term relief is common.
At Central Coast Chiropractic we take the time to listen to you and perform a thorough examination in order to diagnose the cause of your headaches. Often, if clinically indicated, we can commence treatment immediately, however there are times when we may need to refer you for further investigation possibly for an X-ray or MRI and at other times another medical professional.
At Central Coast Chiropractic our treatment is well considered and gentle. We will take the time to explain your condition and treatment options. We will only commence treatment when appropriate and when you are completely comfortable for us to do so.
