Chiropratic treatment for Headaches








Headaches are a common and debilitating condition that affects people of all ages and backgrounds. According to the World Health Organization, Headaches are among the most common disorders of the nervous system. .

Dr. Anneke Lees specialize in diagnosing and treating various types of headaches, addressing the root causes rather than merely masking the symptoms.

 As Chiropractors we treat Migraines, Tension type-headaches, Cluster Headaches and Sinus Headaches.


    Tension Headaches:

    Tension headaches are the most prevalent type, often characterized by a dull, aching pain that radiates from the neck to the head. They are usually caused by muscle tension or stress, leading to discomfort and muscle tightness in the neck.  Chiropractors use various techniques such as spinal adjustments, traction, muscle release therapy, and postural correction to alleviate tension in the neck and shoulders, providing relief and reducing the frequency and intensity of tension headaches.

    Migraine Headaches:

    Migraines are intense and often debilitating headaches that are accompanied by additional symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to light or sound, and visual disturbances. Chiropractors understand that migraines can stem from spinal misalignments or imbalances in the nervous system. By performing spinal adjustments, chiropractors aim to correct these issues and restore optimal nervous system function, reducing the frequency and severity of migraines.

    Cluster Headaches:

    Cluster headaches are severe headaches that occur in cyclical patterns or clusters, often affecting one side of the head. They are characterized by excruciating pain, typically around the eye area, and can last for weeks or months. Chiropractors focus on assessing and addressing nerve irritation, muscle tension, and postural imbalances that may contribute to cluster headaches. Through gentle adjustments and targeted therapies, they aim to provide relief and minimize the frequency of cluster headache episodes.

    Cervicogenic Headaches:

    Cervicogenic headaches originate from issues in the cervical spine (neck) or surrounding structures, such as muscle strain or joint dysfunction. Chiropractors specialize in identifying and treating these underlying causes, utilizing techniques like spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapies, and exercises that enhance the stability and mobility of the neck. By addressing the root cause, they can effectively manage cervicogenic headaches.

    Sinus Headaches:

    Sinus headaches result from sinus inflammation or congestion, often due to allergies or infections. Chiropractors employ gentle adjustments to the facial bones and skull, along with techniques to improve sinus drainage and reduce inflammation. These holistic approaches can provide relief from sinus headaches and help improve overall sinus health.

    Dr. Anneke Lees will do a full history and examination to determine the type of headache and its root cause, she strive to reduce pain and discomfort, enhance overall well-being, and improve the quality of life for individuals suffering from headaches.
