Headaches

Mr Massey's headache treatment does not involve drugs or surgery. He has cured many patients who have had headaches for years at his clinics in Chester and North Wales. There is good evidence that chiropractic adjustment can help with tension and cervicogenic headaches and migraines. The headache treatment at our clinics is a combination of  chiropractic and craniosacral therapy.

Chiropractic treatment for headaches

Have you got used to managing headaches through diet, rest and painkillers, and do you feel that there is no solution and you “just have to put up with them”?  If you feel pain or stiffness in the neck before, during or after your headache you may find that the cause is dysfunction in the joints of your neck.  Nerves travel from the neck up to the head and chronic stiffness in the neck can lead to headaches. Migraine headaches are known to be caused by multiple factors. Releasing tension in the neck with chiropractic adjustment may be enough to break the cycle that causes migraines. A simple examination with tell if you are suffering from restricted neck joints and if you are you will usually notice the benefits after a few treatments.

Once the joints in your neck have been freed up Mr Massey may use craniosacral therapy  which is a gentle yet powerful technique to release deeper tensions in the head. Not only is this an effective tool in helping to free you from headaches, it is also very relaxing. Craniosacral therapy, combined with relaxation techniques that Mr Massey may teach you, will help you to cope better with stress in daily life, and as stress is a major factor in headaches, this is another way that he can help you remain free of headaches.

Many people continue to receive treatment long after their headaches have gone  because they value the freedom of movement that chiropractic treatment brings, and they also value the calmness that craniosacral therapy instils in their daily life.

Testimonials

I first came to St. Asaph Chiropractic Clinic to be treated for migraine. The treatment has been wonderful. I feel great and have not had a migraine for quite a while now. Along with the treatment visits, I was given a good programme of easy, gentle exercises which have improved me greatly. I am very thankful for the help Stephen Massey has given me, I cannot recommend him enough!

Even after the first appointment I couldn’t believe the difference, it felt like a huge weight had literally been lifted off my head, and for the first time in over 10 years I didn’t have a headache. Since then with Steve’s treatment I have been able to increase the periods between my headaches. I also feel more relaxed internally, since the treatment time has taught me how to relax both my body and mind for a long period of time. I would certainly recommend the treatment Steve provides to anyone who has headaches/neck/shoulder pain. I can honestly say it has really changed my life.

A few months ago I started to suffer with headaches. They were very slow starting, building up until I was shaking, feeling sick, having cold sweats and I needed to go home from work to bed. The first consultation revealed they were due to my posture and also an accident I had some years ago in which I injured my spine. The headaches stopped after my first visit.
