Headache Relief in Calgary

Do you suffer from Headaches?

Headaches are one of the most common health concerns and up to 1 in 20 adults have a headache every day.

There are many types of headaches, with “tension headaches” being the most common. In developed countries, tension-type headache affects over one-third of men and over one-half of women. Migraines are also common, affecting at least 1 adult in every 7 in the world according to the WHO.

Are there days when you can’t focus at work or school, your head is pounding, you have tried the usual pharmaceutical remedies and they are not working? Did you know that taking pain medications too frequently can actually make your headaches more frequent? This phenomenon is known as a “rebound headache.”

Patients describe the pain as pounding, pulsing, vice-like, piercing or stabbing and are often accompanied by nausea.

Contributing Factors and Causes

Most headaches are multifactorial, meaning that there can be a number of contributing factors that come together to create the headache. One of the most common and underappreciated contributing factor is the neck not moving correctly or being misaligned.

Cervicogenic: this means from the cervical spine. This is because of the attachment of the muscle that travels from the neck to the base of the skull. Also because of the close relationship of the nervous system to the vertebrae, the bones of the neck.
