Do you Suffer from Headaches and Migraines?

At Putney Chiro we know how life can throw health challenges at you, and these can force your body into a less than ideal state.

A common problem that is effecting an ever increasing number of people are regular bouts of headaches and migraines.

Headaches and migraines can be attributed to a whole host of lifestyle factors such as stress, dehydration, lack of sleep, tension and long exposure to screens. What is less commonly known is that headaches can also be brought on by bad posture, as this puts excess stress on the neck, back and shoulders.

Headaches from bad posture can be linked back to lifestyle, as a huge problem in today’s society is Forward Leaning Head Posture that comes as a result of too much time looking at mobile phones and tablets.

Most of us have experienced headaches in our lifetime and often they pass quickly. However, for some people, symptoms can vary enormously, ranging from mild discomfort to excruciating pain. As well as a headache, migraine symptoms can include nausea, vomiting and exaggerated sensitivity to light and sound. The symptoms of migraines can last from a few hours to several days, potentially resulting in massive disruption to everyday life. When a migraine is severe it can be impossible for the sufferer to work, drive or take part in everyday activities.

If you or someone you know are experiencing regular and/or debilitating headaches or migraines, come in and have a chat with one of our chiropractic team. We can work with you to rectify any spinal misalignment that may be causing tension in the shoulders, neck, back or jaw. This realignment allows your body to self heal effectively by allowing a healthy flow of information from the central nervous system to the rest of the body. We can also work with you to explore the best ways to avoid excess stress in your life and discuss posture and ergonomic exercises as well as relaxation techniques.

There really is no reason for you to have to endure regular bouts of pain, so if you’re suffering, give us a call on 020 8003 4955 and see how we can help.
