Headache Treatment Brisbane
Chiropractic treatment for neck pain and headaches
Headaches are one of the most common illnesses people experience, with over 3.3 million Australians suffering from chronic headaches. Of these Australians, 1 in 7 is using pain relief to treat symptoms at any one point in time.
Chiropractic has been shown to be an effective natural headache remedy for tension headaches and in particular, neck pain and headache relief. Research continues to show that chiropractic spinal adjustments can provide headache sufferers with almost instant relief for headaches that stem from the neck, and lasting relief has been reported for up to four weeks after chiropractic treatment ceased.

As the weight of your body is supported by the spine it is important that the spine is healthy and adequately maintained. Many people will take time off work or miss out on important life events and enjoyments due to the need for chronic neck pain and headaches.
When you get a headache or a migraine it is important not to simply ignore it. Not having your neck, back and central nervous system treated could mean that the problem may reoccur, increase in severity or worse still be the result of a more serious underlying condition.
Common day to day activities can put additional pressure on the neck and cause headaches. Some of these include:
- bad posture including slouching, sitting at a computer incorrectly etc.
- reading with your neck bent
- ergonomics at work and computer monitors not at eye level
- sitting down for long periods at work, reading or in front of a computer
- poor diet - A recent study demonstrated that such a diet can dramatically lower the frequency, intensity, and duration of migraine headaches.
- sharp, fast movements
If you have neck pain and headaches consult your chiropractor
It is quite common that many people will take ibuprofen to relieve the pain; however, it does not treat the actual problem. Taking pain relief tablets generally, means that the pain will return once the medication has worn off. Seeking professional headache treatments will allow a health practitioner to assess the problem and resolve the underlying issue.
Chronic neck pain and headache treatment combined with the right spinal diagnosis and general spine maintenance program can provide reduced pain and increased quality of life.
