Did you know?

Headache is one of the most common pain conditions worldwide, with 15% of Australians relying on painkillers to quickly get rid of a headache. However, medications act as bandaids and do not address the underlying cause. They mask the symptoms temporarily, helping you dull the pain and relax until the ache creeps up again. Remember that your head hurts for a reason. Your pain receptors send a warning signal that something is off with your body and requires immediate attention. You wouldn’t ignore your fire alarm, would you? The good news is headaches chiropractic care can help. At Chiropractic Treats, you can get an effective treatment for headaches Mornington Peninsula to address the cause and eliminate pain from your life.

What are the different types of headaches?

Although annoying, most headaches will not interfere with your daily life. Others are so intense they make you feel nauseous, sensitive to light and sound and unable to think, let alone go about your life.
Here are the most prevalent headaches we treat at our Mornington chiropractic clinic.

Tension headaches

Tension headaches are the most common types of headaches with mild to moderate pain often described as feeling like a tight band around your head. The pain can last days or weeks, making you feel tightness, pressure and pain in your forehead, around the eyes, temples and the sides of your head.

Cervicogenic headaches

Cervicogenic headache begin as a dull ache in the neck which radiates upward into the head and almost always manifests on one side of it. The pain is normally felt at the base of the skull, top of the neck and sometimes up to the bottom of the ears. The pain may also spread to the forehead, temple and the area around the eyes. Doctors call cervicogenic headaches "referred pain" - this means the pain is felt in a different area of the body than the actual source of the problem (spinal misalignment in the upper two neck joints). A chiropractor can correctly and easily diagnose a cervicogenic headache and through a chiropractic adjustment eradicate it.


Migraines are chronic headaches that can cause intense, throbbing pain usually on one side of the head. Light and sound sensitivity, nausea and vomiting often accompany this excruciating headache. Some people experience a warning sign of the incoming pain known as an aura. Have you ever seen flashing lights or blind spots affecting your sight about 30 minutes before getting a migraine? That's the migraine aura. Chiropractic adjustments can help decrease the severity and frequency of migraines for some migraine sufferers.

Causes of headaches

Headaches can be triggered by various lifestyle factors such as poor posture, irregular sleep or stress.
The causes differ depending on the type of headache:
