Headache Relief in London, Ontario
Do you suffer from headaches and live in the London, Ontario area? If you are tired of living with the unrelenting pain, pounding, and throbbing discomfort from constant headaches, we can help!
Headaches are relatively common but also can be incredibly painful, exhausting, and negatively impacting to work productivity and quality of life. Headaches can occur due to any number of reasons including chronic stress, trauma or accidents, poor posture, overuse injury (e.g. sitting at a computer or driving for long distances,) or joint restrictions in the neck.
So, how exactly can chiropractic care help with headaches? Many people do not realize just how much the joints and muscles of their neck can contribute to chronic headaches. It is a common misconception that injury or an incident of trauma needs to occur for headaches to happen. Muscle tightness, poor posture (e.g. looking down at a tablet or texting on a mobile phone,) and neck joint dysfunction can all be significant problems for headache sufferers. Many times, headaches are not the result of one single cause and the reason people have difficulty finding relief is because they are not addressing all the factors that are contributing to their chronic headaches. While over-the-counter pain medication can help with short-term relief, they only mask the real issue that is actually causing the headache. It would be akin to putting a piece of black tape over the blinking check engine light in your car. Chiropractic does the opposite and looks at the whole picture in order to try to get to the root of the problem. The main goal of treatment is to correctly identify WHY your headaches are happening and correct the problem to give you lasting relief.
How We Can Help
Myofasical release can address most soft tissue components of headaches by treating tight muscles and helping free entrapped nerves. Soft tissue therapy and chiropractic adjusting powerfully complement each other by addressing both the joint and muscular components which are responsible for causing many common headaches.
