Migraine headaches, tension headaches, cluster headaches, sinus headaches... migraine with aura, migraine without aura. There are all sorts of headaches out there.
The thing is, headaches are complicated. Not all headaches are the same and there isn't one cause for all headaches. People get frustrated by this. Depending on what thing or things are causing a headache, chiropractic or other services I offer may be a total solution or part of the solution.
One thing I do to deal with headaches that many others do not is Chiropractic Craniopathy . Chiropractic Craniopathy is an advanced level of training that a chiropractor can undertake as part of Sacro-Occipital Technic (SOT®). It takes years of study and practice to become certified. It is not a weekend course that a chiropractor takes. In basic terms, it deals with the micro-motion and position of the bones in the skull as well as the soft tissue involved in these structures. Chiropractic Craniopathy can also help with temporomandibular joint problems (TMJ or TMD) and these issues as well as dental issues like a bad bite or malocclusion can contribute to headaches as well. Sometimes a chiropractor and a dentist have to work together in these situations.
Headaches can also be caused by the vertebra in the neck being subluxated (a chiropractic term for misalignment or joint articulation problem). Poor posture, muscular tension, dietary issues, food allergies, emotional stress...all these things can contribute to and cause a headache.
Another therapy I use for headaches is Neurofeedback. People with headaches often have abnormal brainwave patterns that match the symptoms of the headache. By retraining the brain, I can often reduce or eliminate headaches, especially if they haven't responded to other therapies.
Headaches may take a team approach. I'm happy to work with other professionals you may be working with or help you find another professional to help you if I can't do it alone.

I'm a Chiropractic Physician, Psychotherapist and researcher. I'm interested in helping people live their lives to their full potential. That could be simply without pain. Or it could be without more complicated physical or mental health problems. Or it could be getting help in making changes in their life so that they can achieve their dreams.
