Headaches & Migraines

“It’s NOT just all in your head!”

Headaches & Migraines

If you’re reading this page then chances are you’re a headache or migraine sufferer. Ranging from minor inconvenience to completely debilitating, headaches and migraines can disrupt our social activities, reduce our work capacity and sabotage just about every aspect of our day/week/month.  

At The Health Formula, we know that a pounding head and living in a dark room is no fun, which is why we are passionate about helping headache and migraine suffers like you get your life back.

Causes of Headaches & Migraine

Headaches and migraine have a wide range of causes. Thankfully, in the vast majority of cases, they are not due to anything serious and can be helped with the right treatment and management. Some of the common causes include:

  • Poor posture and workstation ergonomics
  • Muscle tightness (upper back, neck and shoulders)
  • Joint stiffness (particularly the upper cervical spine)
  • Irritated nerves
  • Previous injury (whiplash injury or head trauma)
  • TMJ (jaw) and dental issues
  • Sinus problems
  • Eye strain and problems with vision
  • Stress & Sleep disturbance
  • Blood sugar dysregulation
  • Food and food chemical sensitivities 
  • Nutrient deficiencies (e.g. magnesium and vitamin D)
  • Hormonal imbalance (e.g. low progesterone)
  • Disrupted gut microbiome and leaky gut 
  • Dehydration

We’re Here To Help 

Our practitioners are experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of headaches and migraines and will work with you to establish the underlying cause(s). In some cases, we may also recommend functional laboratory testing to identify hidden causes, such as nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, digestive issues and food sensitivities. 

Once we have a clear understanding of what’s causing your headaches, we’ll formulate the best treatment approach for you, which may include a personalised combination of the following: Osteopathy, Dry Needling, stretching and corrective exercises, posture & ergonomic advice, diet & lifestyle modifications and targeted nutritional supplementation. 

If on the rare occasion we suspect a headache is being caused by something more serious, we’ll help you with a referral to the right place.
