Headaches are one of the most common illnesses in Australia, with around 15 per cent of us taking painkillers for a headache at any given time. Because headaches are so common, most people think they are a normal part of life. However, a persistent headache is a sign that something is wrong. The continual use of pain medication to combat headaches is akin to removing the warning light that alerts you to a problem in your car!
If you’re looking for a safe and natural way to reduce or eliminate headaches, including migraine headaches, then chiropractic treatment may be right for you. The successful approach employed by experienced practitioners like Dr. Shane Hennig, Toorak Gardens Chiropractor, avoids the use of medication and focuses on helping your body to heal itself.
Why should you endure the harmful effects of strong medication or risk of dependence when a therapeutic chiropractic adjustment, healthy diet and adequate sleep could help you heal naturally?
Migraine headaches can be triggered by some items in your diet (like caffeine) or your lifestyle (sudden weight loss, stress or lack of sleep). At your initial consultation Dr. Shane Hennig will ask you questions about your diet and sleep patterns, what according to you triggers an attack, and get to know your symptoms. You will be offered highly personalised migraine therapy based on the detailed diagnosis of your condition.
Simple dietary adjustments, realignment of your neck and spine through various physical therapies, exercise and the introduction of appropriate vitamins can work like magic. We have helped many individuals in Toorak Gardens reduce or eliminate these painful headaches through our chiropractic migraine therapy.
Clinical studies have deemed chiropractic migraine relief as an extremely effective and natural form of treatment that has no harmful side effects.
