Do you suffer for Headaches or Migraines?

Headaches are a very common complaint.   Almost everyone suffers from them at some point in their life.  Some headaches are short-lived times of discomfort, or they can be far more debilitating and long term pain.

Headaches and jaw pain occur for many reasons

  • Tension from muscles in neck, head and upper back

  • Neck joint dysfunction

  • Poor posture 

  • Dentist work

  • Stress

  • Eye strain

  • Sinus congestion

  • Dehydration

  • Jaw misalignment

  • Migraines from changes in blood flow and hormones

  • From trauma eg. from a fall, whiplash, or sporting injury

Migraine Headaches

Migraines are a bit trickier than headaches, and prevention largely lies in avoiding the triggers. The improvements in muscle balance, posture and circulation resulting from treatment can often reduce the frequency or intensity of migraines, and minimise their disruption to your life and/or the amount of medication you need. Common triggers you should try to avoid:

  • stress

  • lack of sleep or jet lag

  • hunger or dehydration

  • foods

  • additives

  • alcohol

  • caffeine

  • medication overuse

  • smells

  • lights and sounds

  • weather

  • female hormones

  • physical activity

Additionally, we will look at your lifestyle and help you formulate a plan to make any necessary changes in your lifestyle that may be affecting your headaches.

I had been having headaches and some neck stiffness for a few years. Loli really helped with her great treatment and knowledgeable information. I rarely get headaches now and I’m so pleased and they have completely stopped whilst training at the gym!
