Headaches

Chiropractic and Acupuncture are evidence-based treatment methods for treating certain types of headaches.

Headaches frequently encountered in practice are:

  • Cervicogenic Headache (generated from neck facet joints and suboccipital muscles)
  • Classical/Non-Classical Migraine

  • Sinusheadache/”Head cold”

Some of the known triggers:

  • Certain types of foods such as cheese, alcohol, caffeine-based products, artificial sweeteners.
  • Weather: changes in pressure or hot weather may trigger a headache.
  • Stress: work-related stress or domestic stress.
  • Exercise: Jogging and Sex may trigger headaches.
  • Meats: certain deli meats may cause headaches due to nitrates and tyramines.
  • Eyestrain: One of the most common types of headaches.
  • Dehydration/Hypoglycaemia: Another very common type of headache due to not drinking enough water and not keeping blood sugar constant.
  • If you have any of these signs and symptoms see your NHS GP straight away:
  • A sudden severe headache accompanied by a stiff neck
