Chiropractor for Headache
The causes of headaches and migraines can be a combination of nerve irritation in particular at the cervical column; posture disorders; Vestibular and ocular disorders … which cause muscle contractions or vascular contractions and that require adequate correction and rehabilitation.
Relieving a migraine or a persistent headache is not a solution …
Because migraines and headaches are so common, most people think that having a headache is part of life and it’s normal. It’s not true! A headache in whatever form is a sign that something does not work normally (nerves, muscles, arteries, …). Not taking care of the cause of migraine, simply masking the symptoms and trying to relieve it temporarily, only aggravates the problems and makes headaches become persistent, chronic and stronger.
Correct the cause of migraines or headaches!
The cause of a migraine or a headache is not a stress problem or a psychological problem for which psychotherapy will have to be done or taking anti depressants (even if stress and full of other factors can trigger headaches and migraines).
The cause of a migraine, a headache, a headache or neuralgia is a problem of the functioning of the brain and the nervous system and which can be triggered with stress or fatigue … it’s the ‘alarm that triggers when there is fire at home. We can turn off the alarm and go beating (taking anti-pains for example) and leave the problem worsen in time or correct the cause of migraine or skull pain …
Why migraines and headaches during stress, pregnancy, fatigue …?
If your nervous system is faulty and irritated; So stress, fatigue, emotional problems, smells, light, meal, hormonal changes (pregnancy, rules) and many other things bring out the symptoms! The solution to treat these migraines and headaches is to improve the functioning of the nervous system so that it is more stable and more resistant to external aggression. Not just eliminate pain! And that’s what makes the difference in our approach with what is often used elsewhere and that temporarily relieves migraines and headaches!
Our approach and our specificity to treat chronic migraines and persistent headaches
Our unique and innovative approach to cure chronic migraines and persistent headaches goes beyond a simple temporary relief of symptoms, but brings in the majority of cases, a long-term solution for many headaches including Migraines, tension headaches.
Primary headaches (migraine, tension headache, …) are consequences of nervous disturbances causing either muscle contractions or changes in arterial dilatations, or a hypersensitivity of the nerves, and often a combination of all that. Our approach makes it possible to intervene in chiropraxie to release muscle tension and remove nerve irritation and rehabilitate vestibular, proprioceptive and cerebellar systems to better control nervous information.
Note: Many studies have shown the effectiveness of chiropractic care for tension headaches and migraines; even compared to medicines.

Treatment techniques are suitable for children. They will be different depending on their age, height and weight. I don’t use manipulations until I’m 11.

Chiropractic is recommended for pregnant women. It helps relieve pregnancy-related pain, as well as relaxes the muscles of the pelvis. This allows your baby to have more room in your belly and therefore to develop and position themselves better.
I use a chiropractic table that adapts to your body and gentle techniques to relieve your pain or muscle tension. During the consultation I will show you exercises to do alone or in pairs to relax your back.
