Headache Problems

Often, people who suffer from headaches do so because of the problems in their neck. These are referred to as cervicogenic headaches and typically arise when there is limited movement between joints in your upper cervical spine. Normally, each joint should be able to move freely without affecting any other part of the body.

Causes of headaches

The cervicogenic headache typically is one that affects the neck and head. It may happen on either side of your body, or both sides at once!

This headache is a common and intense migraine. It can be caused by stress, lack of sleep or food, weak muscles in the neck region (due to your head being too heavy), changes in barometric pressure or even an illness like strep throat.

This pain often starts from the base of your skull then travels up toward top of it over several days before going into one arm with painful tenderness around where you feel that ache as well as muscle stiffness for weeks at most after this episode has passed through.

What Triggers Headaches?

Cervicogenic headaches are more common in middle-aged adults and women. They're brought on by trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident or an earlier concussion. Cervicogenic headache patients often have poor posture like "slouching" forward with their head.

What We Do

If you experience any of the following symptoms, please contact us immediately: sudden headache that feels different from previous headaches, new or worsening headache, neck stiffness and trouble moving your head normally.

If these are paired with light-headedness, dizziness, numbness in face or arms/legs (tingling), losing consciousness for a brief moment while standing up suddenly after laying down to rest on couch / bed overnight, contact us.

At-Home Treatment For Headaches

Drink Water

Remember to drink 6-8 glasses of water each day, especially in hot weather or when you've been sweating. Also, medications are often not helpful for cervicogenic headaches because they're caused by a mechanical problem; fortunately our office has several tools which can help solve this issue!

I don’t know what I’d do without my monthly appointment. My movement vastly improved and there has been a reduction in persistent when I discovered this clinic.

After being diagnosed with BPPV Vertigo I was really suffering and after not really making any progress with the Betahistine prescribed by the Doctor at the Royal Stoke I decided to see Dr Finn, who has previously resolved other muscular and skeletal injuries for myself and my family. With BPPV Vertigo being an issue with the inner ear I wasn’t sure if this was something he could resolve promptly ? The clinic fitted me in really quickly and after just two short visits my BPPV was fully resolved. After spending so much time on 111 and at the hospital I was relieved at how swiftly and efficiently Dr Finn resolved my BPPV, which was really bad. I can fully recommend this clinic for this and other treatments in a professional and effective manner. 10/10

My wife was suddenly in real pain around her hip area and upon making a phone call to Newcastle Chiropractic was given an immediate appointment. With a total of no more than 20 minutes she was feeling a lot less pain and doing gentle walking as recommended by Rob. She’s very grateful with a lot less pain and feeling mobile again.

I first started seeing Rob in 1998 when he took over from Jane Hvas at the Brampton Clinic. I have now been a patient of Robs for 25 years. I don't know what I would have done without the treatment and support I have re eived from him. He's simply the best.

Dott. Burcu Cetinkaya is the best chiropractor I've ever been treated by, and I've had many. Since the first visit at the clinic I've been examinated and listened very carefully about my problems and I've been given a personalised plan of treatment and exercises straight away. I've been checked vertebra by vertebra and rettified my posture, basically if there is a problem she will find out and I've never been so happy with my back, my problems they're gone and my posture is the best ever. I can't thank dott. Burcu enough even if an emergency occurred she has been always available and makes me feel safe.
Not the last the ladies on reception are the kindest ever. The clinic service is a 5 star ???? all round. Thank you ???? ???? ????????
