  • Back Treatments



Headaches are common, but that does not make them normal. There are many different types of headaches with a number of different causes. Your chiropractor at Align Corrective Chiropractic Durban will assess you thoroughly to determine the underlying cause of your headaches and suggest an appropriate course of treatment to correct the cause of these headaches.

What is the cause of headaches?

Most headaches are due to misalignments and tension in the neck, but it is possible that lower back problems can cause the upper spine to compensate, and shift the head off centre, causing extra strain in the neck leading, to headaches. This is why our Chiropractors take a full spine approach to treating headaches.

Treatment of headaches

The common approach to headaches is to take painkillers, but these rarely address the underlying cause, and patients often become dependent on these pills.

We have very high success rates with patients who suffer from headaches, by means of a safe and natural approach.

“I had suffered with shoulder and neck pain since my car accident in 2014 – this often resulted in severe migraines and physically being sick. Before meeting David, I didn’t really know what a chiropractor did, and was quite afraid of them. It took me by surprise, how gentle the adjustments were and how good I felt after coming for a few visits.

It was also refreshing to learn that I had misalignment in my spine, and this needed to be corrected in order to see long-term change, no-one had ever explained this to me before in such an objective way, with x-rays etc.

I highly recommend Dr David Palmer at Align Corrective Chiropractic”.
