north london chiropractor advice for headachesWhile aspirin can be a temporary headache treatment,  chiropractic can often offer a longer lasting result.  A good chiropractor will not just treat the symptoms of your headache but will find the source of your pain and treat that.

As an experienced North London Chiropractor I see many patients suffering from headaches.

Treatment of headache sufferers will often involve adjustments to their neck.  I will often provide them with muscle strengthening and stretching exercises to perform and offer them self-help advice to follow.

Frequently posture correction will help in preventing headaches from returning.  However,  long standing problems may take a longer course of treatment to correct.

Relaxation techniques can also be beneficial to sufferers and can be more effective than medication. Headache sufferers can benefit from learning relaxation techniques.

Dietary and lifestyle changes can help with controlling some people’s headaches.  This can be effective especially if it is combined with chiropractic treatment to the neck which can frequently be the cause of headaches.

In the event of a headache attack,  as a chiropractor in North London,  I recommend that my patients:

• lie down and try to sleep

• drink lots of water (2-3 glasses should suffice)

• put your feet in cold water or something cold

If you are suffering from headaches that are getting you down the why not call us at Muswell Hill Chiropractic Clinic in North London and make an appointment to see how chiropractic treatment could help you.

north london chiropractor advice for headachesWhile most of us will suffer from the occasional headache,  if you are feeling that your headaches are more than you can cope with right now then you are not alone.

Headaches are the most frequent reason people seek medical advice. In fact,  over 10% of the population of the UK suffer from headaches.

While there are over 20 types of headaches,  the most common are tension headaches and cervicogenic headaches i.e. ones resulting from neck problems.

Tension headaches are often described as ‘live with it’ headaches as are usually characterised by a dull pain on both sides of the head,  no nausea and long lasting.

As an experienced North London Chiropractor I see many patients suffering from headaches.

Treatment of headache sufferers will often involve adjustments to their neck.  I will often provide them with muscle strengthening and stretching exercises to perform and offer them self-help advice to follow.

Here are a few pieces of self-help advice I offer my patients as a chiropractor in North London:

  • Make  sure that you do not sleep on your front as this causes your neck and spine to twist.
  • If you tend to wake up on your front,  place a pillow on either side of you before sleeping,  this is to help avoid turning onto your front.
  • Try cutting out certain foods and avoiding certain behaviours (see list below)
  • Relax in a quiet environment.

Substances to try and avoid

  • Chocolate and crisps
  • Red wine
  • Beverages containing caffeine
  • Monosodium glutamate e.g. Chinese and fast food
  • Most tinned and dried soups

  • Too much sleep
  • Too little sleep
  • Excessively vigorous exercise
