Headache Treatment

Chiropractic care for headache relief

Chiropractors are regulated primary health care practitioners who predominantly treat musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, joint pain, spinal issues like scoliosis, knee pain, injuries & more. Essentially conditions related to the muscles, bones and joints.  

You may be unsure whether your headache is musculoskeletal related or if your headache is caused by something else. As primary healthcare providers Chiropractors are trained to assess and refer to the relevant health or medical practitioner if Chiropractic care isn’t appropriate to you.  If you would like to know more about the types of headaches we commonly see at our practice click the Understanding Headaches button below.

TYPES OF TREATMENT

Activator

The Activator Method uses a small, hand-held instrument called the Activator Adjusting Instrument to deliver a gentle impulse force to the spine with the goal of restoring motion to the targeted spinal vertebra or joint.

Soft tissue therapy

Massage technique aimed to decrease muscle tension and decrease tight muscle bands.

Cold Laser Therapy

Low intensity laser that stimulates healing while using low levels of light. Laser aims to promote repair in damaged cells which respond with a physiological reaction from the red light which promotes regeneration.

Rehabilitation

Combination of strengthening exercises and stretches aimed to help restore regular function of the body, whilst strengthening to decrease possibility of injury reoccurring.

Chiropractic - Whole Family Care

Through gentle and effective adjustments Chiropractic may give you relief by restoring proper spinal and nerve function.

Your brain transmits trillions of nerve signals through your spine to your body every second. If your spine is restricted then these nerve messages may be interfered with. This can lead to local inflammation and pain such as back or neck pain, referred nerve pain like sciatica or headaches, general stiffness and lack of wellbeing. Our Chiropractors, Dr Mark Beovich & Dr Alex O’Shaughnessy locate these problem areas and give relief through treatment to help restore proper motion to the spine, reduce any nerve irritation and relieve muscle tension.

Being a family practice, Bayswater Chiropractic caters for all ages. Posture, rehabilitation exercises and long term relief/stabilisation are key components to Chiropractic care. Established since 1991, Bayswater Chiropractic has the experience to help you
