Do you suffer from tension, migraine, or other types of headaches? Sandalwood Chiropractic & Wellness Centre offers chiropractic services that provide headache relief in Brampton.
Tension headaches (band-like pressure) and migraine headaches (severe throbbing pain) are all too common and potentially debilitating. Whiplash or sports injuries, poor posture and work-related stress and strain (i.e. computers) are common causes. Most headaches are caused by chronic or acute injury to nerves, muscles, discs and/or joints in the neck. Chiropractic care has been repeatedly proven to reduce the intensity and severity of headaches.
Remember: The normal number of headaches is zero.
Migraines – Migraines are described as an intense throbbing or a pulsing sensation on one or both sides of the head. When a person is suffering from a migraine they usually are sensitive to light and sound and at times also suffer nausea and vomiting.
Cervicogenic – In most instances pain is on one side of the head and also affects the shoulders and neck.
Tension Headaches – Patients describe tension headaches as a feeling of tightness around the head accompanied by constant pain and pressure. The pain can be felt everywhere, including both sides and back of the head, forehead, and temples.
Cluster Headaches – This type of headache appears out of nowhere and includes severe and recurring stabbing, penetrating, burning or explosive pain on one side of the head. These headaches are often described as starting around the eyes.
We treat many patients for these types of headaches. Our Chiropractors can assess, diagnose and manage headaches. Treatment may vary for each individual. For more information or to book an appointment, please contact our office.
