Headaches are a weekly occurrence for thousands of Australians. Many headache sufferers are oblivious to the fact that you can gain relief from a headache naturally, without the aid of over the counter drugs.
15 percent of Australians use painkillers for a headache at any given time. Because headaches are extremely common, most people think they are a normal part of life. However, a recurring headache is a sign that something is wrong.
Could my Headache be coming from my neck?
At the base of the skull, there are several muscles that can tighten up, often due to poor posture. These muscles can push on nerves that in turn refer pain in the forehead and eye area. We can remove the tension in the problematic neck muscles via massage and Chiropractic adjustments often reducing the symptoms and duration of the headache.
Our Massage therapists and Chiropractors in Preston have treated hundreds of clients with severe Headaches and Migraines associated with neck muscle tension. In Dean Watson’s first publication, 100% of tension-type headache sufferers and 94% of migraine sufferers had their headaches reproduced through palpation of their neck, this indicates a connection between head pain and the neck.(1)

Can Massage and Chiropractic help with headaches?
Yes they can. We work on the muscles around the neck. If these muscles are tight, they can put pressure on the nerves that refer to the forehead and eyes. This gives you the sensation of pain around your forehead, however, the root cause of this pain could be derived from your neck.
Should I book a Chiro or Massage appointment?
Either should be helpful. At Advanced Health Chiropractic, all Massage Therapists and Chiropractors are experienced in treating headaches.
How many appointments are generally required to get rid of my headache?
This is worked out on a case by case basis. Generally speaking with headaches, we can get a marked improvement in 1-3 appointments.
