Headache and Migraine Cures

If you suffer from chronic stress headaches, or debilitating migraines and you’re sick and tired of taking drugs like paracetamol or migraleve, or they just don’t work then I have some solutions for you, no matter what your level of pain, or how long or often you suffer from headaches and migraines.

You might not necessarily think of seeing a spinal therapy for headaches, but there is a lot that we can do to help. We are highly trained and knowledgeable in this area and have been seeing patients at our North London clinics with this exact issue for years.

Don’t worry, you are not alone. The numbers of people that suffer from headaches every year are staggering.

Headaches and migraines have many underlying causes, from food allergies and chemical sensitivities, hormonal imbalances to simple dehydration and most doctors just don’t have the time to investigate all these different causes.

The most common causes of headaches and migraines are the neck and the jaw – even if you have no neck or jaw pain.

And this is the problem. If you don’t have obvious neck or jaw problems you may never seek help to get them fixed and while dangerous drugs like paracetamol and nurofen can deaden nerves, so you don’t feel the pain, they can never realign the jaw or move a stiff, distorted spine.

The spine and the jaw are rich in nerves, and even tiny problem can excite a lot of nerves. And the longer the problem has been there, the more likely it is to cause symptoms.

Spinal Distortions and Jaw Problems

So where do spinal distortions and jaw problems come from.

Well the jaw is easy to explain – its’ most likely the way it grew – did you have to wear braces as a kid, or have teeth out due to overcrowding? Have you had your wisdom teeth out, or ever had a root canal? All these are clues towards your jaw being the culprit, and we know how to detect it and even treat it without dentistry.

What about spinal problems?

Spinal distortions can happen suddenly as a result of accidents and injuries. The obvious one is past whiplash injuries from car accidents. It can take up to 16 years for pain to become present from even a 5mph impact. Even more minor injuries add up – for instance have you ever fallen off a chair, or tripped missing a step at the edge of a curb.

A second BIG impact on spinal distortion is your postural habits. Most people crane their head forward when sitting at the computer – you’re probably doing it now – also when driving, when washing up at a sink, when doing the ironing. The worse thing is – you’ve been doing it since you where 5 years old and where told to ‘sit still’ at school. Childhood posture, accidents and injuries – even the birth process itself could be the original trauma that has caused your headaches today.

There are other hidden causes of spinal rot and chronic postural distortion, including, over time a lack of nutrients – I mean look at what osteoporosis does – it crumbles the spine and causes a stoop….. but don’t worry it’s even possible to help people with osteoporosis and arthritis.
