Your life is stressful enough as it is without the annoyance of a slitting headache. Headaches can make the simplest of tasks seem monumental. Most of us have experienced a headache from time to time and we know how uncomfortable it can be. It is hard to enjoy your day, headaches can also affect your personal and professional relationships.
Some headaches are caused by serious conditions, that need hospital admission, but the majority of headaches arise from problems with the shoulder or neck joints. A misalignment in the shoulder or collar bone joints can often cause neck and headaches, and occasionally dizziness.
Some of the more common forms of headaches include:
Tension headaches, from muscle spasms in the shoulder-neck regions
Cervicogenic headaches, problems withe the neck vertebral joints
extremity problems, (ei: shoulder and collar bone joints)
The Wolff Clinic treatment for headaches incorporates the use of many therapies (ei: Neuro Muscular Strengt Testing, NMST), all of which are gentle, safe, natural and non invasive. in most cases however, the chiropractor will use an adjustment to correct spinal restrictions or joint misallingments. An adjustment involves the gentle and specific application of a force to the joint or spine in order to allow the body to restore normal joint and nervous system function. This is pain FREE. Management of the condition may involve specific advice on exercise and rehabilitative measures as well as lifestyle and nutritional counceling.
