Our treatment of headaches is two-fold:

  • Reduce tension in neck muscles to relief stress
  • Increase range of motion for less headaches


Headaches are estimated to affect 4.5 million Canadians and some with a more severe form, recurring attacks of migraine and tension headaches. They spend upwards of $40 million each year on over-the-counter and prescription drugs in their search for permanent relief. For some, the medication works. Unfortunately for many the relief obtained is temporary at best. A cycle of headaches and medication often occurs without any lasting relief found. If you think this describes your pain then there is good news for you.

Headache pain to nerve irritation. One study, conducted at the University of Maryland, found a connection between muscle tension at the base of the neck and headaches. Muscle contractions interfere with the sensitive fibers at the base of the neck that lead to the brain and spinal cord. This muscle tension often plays a contributing factor to headache pain.

A study conducted by the government of New Zealand found that the majority of people who suffered from neck tension had their headaches relieved or their condition improved through chiropractic care. And in follow-up studies of the same patients it was found that many were still without recurring headache pain two years later.

We will recommend the best care possible after conducting an initial exam, where we can make recommendations to you for your particular case.  Each patient is unique in how their headache affects their health.
