Chiropractic treatment for headaches


Almost everyone has experienced a painful headache at some point in your life. Often, they come about at the worst times and can cause us to lose our focus at work or when we are trying to concentrate on something important. Some people, however, suffer from far more frequent and even more painful headaches which can seriously impact their day-to-day life.

Different types of headaches can cause pain in different areas. Regular headaches are called ‘tension’ headaches and are often not localized. Headaches are caused by the muscles in your head and neck contracting. This causes pressure on your head and can cause a very painful, dull pain around a wider area. Headaches can vary in strength and can last for anything from a few hours to a few days.

Migraines, on the other hand, are often very localized to one section of your head and come with other symptoms too, such as nausea, increased light sensitivity, hampered vision, and a heightened sense of smell. Chiropractic treatment for headaches is one effective way of both alleviating the symptoms while also reducing the frequency and intensity of your headaches or migraines.

Major causes of headaches and migraines

Both headaches and migraines can have a wide range of root causes, including:

  • Stress and anxiety

  • Depression

  • Poor posture and musculoskeletal problems

  • Tiredness

  • Dehydration

  • Hunger

  • Noise

  • Hormonal changes

  • Excessive use of bright computer screens

  • Poor diet

    • And much more…


Sometimes, it is hard to identify your specific problem. On top of this, some people get them randomly and more often than others. Because of this, chiropractors can provide an effective treatment for headaches and migraines.

How chiropractic works as a headache treatment


Chiropractic treatment can be extremely effective for those in HK suffering from persistent headaches. When you book a consultation with us, we ask you about your medical history as well as discuss any potential causes of your headaches. From where we can work out an effective chiropractic treatment that will improve your quality of life.

During your headache treatment, your doctor will administer powerful yet controlled force to areas along your spine. This procedure is called spinal adjustment and can help to reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches. The area targeted will be the upper spine, which leads into your neck.

One of the primary advantages of this kind of treatment for your headaches is that it is non-intrusive. It does not require medication or surgery and can facilitate a swift recovery.
