Natural Migraine & Headache Treatment
Eight out of 10 of us suffer from some form of headaches or migraines. Some are occasional. However, some are much more frequent. They can range from an annoying dull pain at the back of your head to an intense, debilitating pain behind your eyes that can make everyday tasks seem impossible.
If you are a sufferer and want to find an alternative, longer-lasting and natural headache treatment to relieve the pain, then our chiropractic techniques could be the ideal solution.
How do we treat them?
Recent research has shown that chiropractic spinal manipulation is an effective treatment option for a tension headache. This type of headache originates from the neck. As with all of our treatments, we start with a full assessment, so we can tailor treatment to your specific headache or migraine condition. Because of this, we can also identify its severity and cause. We will then use a range of techniques within our headache treatment (and migraine treatment) including hands-on manipulation, neck adjustments and other physical therapy to reduce tension, minimise symptoms and restore correct function.
Finally, alongside manual treatment we also offer a package of aftercare which includes advice on self-help, therapeutic exercises and lifestyle/dietary changes. We do this because whilst we believe chiropractic is an effective form of treatment, we also want to help your body’s natural healing process.
What causes migraines?
Migraines affect 8.5 million people in the UK. They are usually a severe headache, which affects one side of your head. Other symptoms can include light sensitivity, nausea and vomiting. These physical symptoms mean that a migraine can completely wipe you out. Exact causes of migraines are unknown, but they’re thought to be the result of abnormal brain activity temporarily affecting nerve signals, chemicals and blood vessels in the brain.
Your initial migraine treatment with Chiropractor Bramhall will involve a detailed history and examination to determine the type and cause of your headaches. We will then talk you through a treatment plan and use specific techniques to ease your migraine pains. During this appointment, we’ll also discuss any lifestyle changes you will need to follow, as well as things to avoid to allow normal functionality to return. Taking these steps will reduce the likelihood of the problem returning.

What Our Customers Say
Years of regular intense headaches which I thought were migraines, relieved instantly with adjustments from Dr Gregory. I was so nervous going into the clinic as I thought it would hurt, but it was instant. Go and get your headache checked as it could be easily sorted like mine.
So professional, effective, and so honest. To think I had headaches for years and it took 2 months to completely cure.
An MRI confirmed disc herniation was sending shocking pains through my bum into my thigh and numbness raged in my foot. I was offered injections leading to surgery by my specialist. I decided to give Chiropractic a go whilst I waited for the injection appointment. Thank god I did as 8 weeks later I was back in the swimming pool and playing with my kids. No need for any more invasive action. Jordan is the man, if you’re unsure just go for a chat and see what he says.
