Are you one of the many thousands of Australians whose lives are impacted by headaches?
If so, you’re not alone. The World Health Organization estimates that almost 50% of the population suffer from headaches at least once within the last year and are among the most common disorders of the nervous system.
“The long-term effort of coping with a chronic headache disorder may also predispose the individual to other illnesses. For example, depression is three times more common in people with migraine or severe headaches than in healthy individuals.” W.H.O
A series of studies have shown chiropractic to be an effective treatment for headaches. Because headaches can develop from a variety of causes, alone or in combination, a holistic approach that considers all possible causes is desirable. Such causes may include spinal joint dysfunction (subluxation), muscular imbalance and tension, negative reactions to foods or medications, sleep disturbances, emotional stress, or chemical irritants in the water or air.
