Headaches in Calgary NW

woman headacheHeadaches are a universal experience, varying from being slightly bothersome to downright debilitating. Whether it’s throbbing pain, a dull ache, sudden “brain freeze” after eating ice cream, or discomfort at the top of the head, headaches can significantly affect our daily lives and mental well-being.

How Chiropractic Care May Help

Chiropractic adjustments can be an effective approach for addressing tension headaches and neck-originating headaches. At Dalhousie Family Chiropractic & Massage, we use the Active Release Technique and recommend home exercises to complement our care. Our goal is to restore proper spinal movement and relieve nerve pressure, which has led to successful outcomes for many of our patients.

We find it rewarding to help individuals suffering from migraines and headaches, particularly those triggered by environmental factors such as high elevation and seasonal Chinook winds.


How long does it take to get results?

While chiropractic care has shown promise in addressing headaches, the time frame for noticeable results can vary. Some of our patients experience relief after a few adjustments, while others may require upwards of 20 sessions. This variability depends on the specific condition, duration, and patient activities between appointments.

What are some other ways to manage headaches?

Alongside chiropractic care, other drug-free methods can help reduce headache discomfort. Techniques such as relaxation exercises, yoga, and acupuncture may offer relief. Moreover, noticing if any foods or drinks you consume trigger headaches is a good idea. Potential triggers include Parmesan cheese, dark chocolate, and red wine.

When should someone seek immediate care?

If you experience an unusually severe headache that worsens over time or a headache following a head injury, seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms such as fever, stiff neck, confusion, decreased alertness, or memory loss accompanying your headache also warrant urgent care.
