In Robina, as with the rest of Australia, headache is one of the most common illnesses, with around 15 per cent of us taking painkillers for a headache at any given time.

Because headaches are so common, most people think they are a normal part of life. However, at Blair & Chapman Chiropractic we can show you why a persistent headache is a sign that something is wrong. The continual use of pain medication to combat headaches is akin to removing the warning light that alerts you to a problem in your car! Medication doesn’t solve your headache, it simply offers a short term solution to dull the pain. Blair & Chapman Chiropractic in Robina can help you find and treat the cause of your headaches.

Types of Headache

Tension headaches and migraine are the most common forms of headache while cluster headaches are usually rare. Other types of headache include sinus headache, rebound headache and exertion headache.

Causes of Headache

Headaches can result due to a variety of reasons including stress, poor posture, accidents, medications, environmental factors (such as strong odours and pollution) and dietary irregularities.

Perhaps one of the most overlooked causes of headache is nerve irritation in the upper neck caused by poorly functioning spinal joints… vertebral dysfunction. Blair & Chapman Chiropractic‘s Chiropractors are specially trained to understand that the nerves of the upper neck supply areas of the scalp and face, so irritation of these nerves can often lead to headache.

Assessment of Headache

Your Blair & Chapman Chiropractic chiropractor will carefully analyse potential headache triggers and perform a detailed history, orthopaedic, neurological and spinal examination to determine the cause of your headache. Further diagnostic testing such as x-ray or MRI may also be required and can be referred by Blair & Chapman Chiropractic. Upon arriving at a specific diagnosis, your Chiropractic care can begin.

Relief From Headache

Chiropractic is an extremely effective treatment for headache. By carefully restoring proper movement to the spinal joints of the neck, your Blair & Chapman Chiropractic chiropractor is able to significantly reduce the presence of nerve irritation and muscle tension helping to alleviate the cause of your headaches.
