Headache

Headache sufferers find fast, effective, lasting relief without drugs.

If you live in and are suffering from tension, migraine, cluster or cervical headaches, YOU CAN FIND RELIEF!

Ninety-five percent of headaches are primary headaches, such as tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease but FROM TENSION.

"The greatest majority of primary headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck," says Dr. George B. McClelland, Chairman of the American Chiropractic Association's (ACA) Board of Governors. "Today, Americans engage in more sedentary activities than they used to, and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture. This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing your head to ache!

GREAT NEWS!

For many, that relief is only a phone call away.
Barclay Chiropractic specializes in the treatment of headache pain regardless of its cause.

Why Choose Chiropractic for Headache Relief?

According to the International Chiropractic Association, the primary focus of chiropractic is the detection, reduction and correction of spinal misalignments and nervous system dysfunction. Doctors of chiropractic attempt to get to the root cause of a health problem, rather than just treat the symptoms. Chiropractic seeks to maximize the natural strengths of the body and its capacity to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

Dr. Warren R. Barclay

Welcome to Barclay Chiropractic! My name is Dr. Warren R. Barclay (Dr. B) I am originally from Lowell, Massachusetts and my first experience with Hudson was playing golf at Green Meadow Golf Course at the age fourteen. I guess I was impressed because we moved our family to Hudson in 1986.

I received my professional training at St. Francis Xavier University (Nova Scotia, Canada) and the University of New Hampshire. I have a Masters degree from the University of Maine and received my Doctorate at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

My wife Suzanne is from Sorel, Quebec and we have three children: Dr. Ryan, Allison and Patrick. As an officer in the U.S. Army, I lived and traveled in many states. Having had this opportunity to compare different parts of the country, the beauty of New England’s four seasons brought us home. We did an extensive personal survey to determine where my skills would be most needed. There was no doubt this was the place! Where do we live…a street parallel to Green Meadow Golf Course. Where is our office? Our office (log cabin) sits across from the entrance to Green Meadow Golf Course in Hudson. We are also communicants of St. Kathryn’s Church.

I have extensive sports experience that translates into my love for treating sports related injuries. I continue to compete in golf and curling and enjoy skiing, fishing and kayaking.

At Barclay Chiropractic, you are welcome to experience the remarkable combination of "Traditional Chiropractic and State of the Art Technology."


Dr. Ryan Barclay

Although, he was born in Maine and was raised in Hudson, New Hampshire, he was not afraid to share his New England colors with the Midwest! Dr. Ryan Barclay is a 2008 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While in school he was a member of the Delta Sigma Chi fraternity, an organization dedicated to the promotion of chiropractic.

Since joining his father in practice in 2010, Dr. Ryan has become very involved with the community. He's currently a member of the Nashua Rotary Club as well as the Merrimack Valley Curling Club.

Causes Of Headache

There are two types of headaches:

Primary Headaches include tension, migraine, cervicogenic, and cluster headaches and are not caused by other underlying medical conditions. More than 90% of headaches are primary.

Secondary Headaches result from other medical conditions, such as infection or increased pressure in the skull due to a tumor. These account for fewer than 10% of all headaches.

Descriptions of the Primary Headache Types:

1. Tension Headaches: are the most common, affecting more than 75% of all headache sufferers. As many as 90% of adults have had tension headaches.

Tension headaches usually involve a steady ache, rather than a throbbing one, are described as a feeling of pressure or tightening, may last minutes to days, affect both sides of the head, and and do not worsen with routine physical activity. It may also be accompanied by hypersensitivity to light and noise. Some people get tension (and migraine) headaches because of stressful events. Tension headaches may also be chronic, occurring frequently or daily.

Rebound Headache: Rebound headache may occur among people with tension headaches, as well as in those with migraines. It can be the result of taking prescription or nonprescription pain relievers daily or almost every day, contrary to directions on the package label. If prescription or nonprescription pain relievers are overused, headaches may 'rebound' as the last dose wears off--leading you to take more and more pills. This is a great reason to call your chiropractor. Break that cycle!

2. Cervicogenic Headaches:

Cervicogenic Headaches come from disorders of the neck. They are often brought on by neck movement and/or sustained awkward head positioning (such as painting the ceiling or washing the floor). There may also be stiffness in the neck or shoulder and arm pain accompanying the headaches.

3. Migraine Headaches:

Migraine Headaches are less common than tension headaches, but still afflict 25 to 30 million people in the United States As many as 6% of all men, and up to 18% of all women experience a migraine headache at some time.

Migraines may last 4-72 hours and involve the entire head. They can cause throbbing and are aggravated by routine physical activity.

Nausea, sensitivity to light and sound often accompany migraines. An "aura" may occur before head pain begins-- involving a disturbance in vision, and/or an experience of brightly colored or blinking lights in a pattern that moves across the field of vision. About one in five migraine sufferers experiences an aura.

Usually, migraine attacks are occasional, or sometimes as often as once or twice a week, but rarely occur daily.

4. Cluster Headaches:

are pretty rare, affecting about 1% of the population. They are different from migraine and tension headaches. Most cluster headache sufferers are male -- about 85%.

Cluster headaches come in groups or clusters lasting weeks or month. The pain is extremely severe but the attack is brief, lasting no more than a hour or two. The pain centers around one eye, and this eye may be inflamed and watery. There may also be nasal congestion on the affected side of the face.

These "alarm clock" headaches may strike in the middle of the night, and often occur at about the same time each day during the course of a cluster. A history of heavy smoking and drinking is common, and alcohol often triggers attacks.

Testimonials

*"When I first went to Dr. B my head would be cocked to one side by 2:00pm and I could not straighten it out. Through regular adjustments with Dr. B this problem no longer existed. I can’t tell you how many times I would be doing something and all of a sudden my back would go out. When this would happen, I would call the office and was always told to come in immediately. Another time I pinched a nerve in my neck and my arm felt like it was on fire but after many adjustments at Barclay Chiropractic, my problem was alleviated.

I can’t say enough about Dr. B’s staff; they are all so pleasant and helpful. I have participated in all the services the office offers and love the massages too!"
Kenneth L. - 59


*"I’ve trusted Barclay Chiropractic with my care for over 12 years after having been recommended by a physical therapist specializing in cervical/spinal care. I’ve had good progress with maintaining functionality and minimizing pain. Most recently, with the addition of cold laser treatments, I’ve experienced incredible improvements-especially in my neck and upper back which had been causing me chronic pain. I’ve been able to go off Celebrex, which I had been on for over 10 years. I am working long hours without daily pain and I’m able to do more of the things I enjoy like gardening. My quality of life has been greatly improved!"

Judith K. - 54


*"Barclay Chiropractic has freed me from severe pain in my neck and lower back. They're always very willing to accommodate my crazy schedule and I couldn't imagine what I'd do without them!"
​Brian M. - 47


*"Barclay Chiropractic helped throughout my karate tournament season. I got adjusted before the World Championships and I wouldn't be able to compete without that adjustment. The adjustments helped me be relaxed, perform at my best, and win 2 world titles."

Hayden M. - 11


*"As an athlete aspiring for Olympic level rowing endeavors, chiropractic care has been an instrumental health care tool for staying aligned and healthy. I came to Dr. B over 12 years ago for a problem with my neck which, with regular adjustments, was solved in just a few visits. I am a firm believer in chiropractic care ever since high school after being injured. A compressed sacroiliac joint was corrected through regular maintenance. Dr. B and his staff are among the best of the best in support of supplemental care including massage, other treatment modalities, and health guidance. Next time you feel like you need a pill to fix something, consider chiropractic care with Dr. Warren Barclay and his team. Well worth a visit."

Michael S. - 40


*"I’ve been coming to Barclay Chiropractic since 1987 and have had great results! I have had no surgeries and have been able to work and travel. I recently started the new cold laser therapy and have had great results as well. I now feel 100% better. The staff is also very caring and always accommodates my schedule the best they can."
Sarsha M. - 63


*"My name is Adam and I’m 34 years old. I have been making an hour commute each way to and from Dr. Barclay’s office faithfully for over nine years. I have taken advantage of all their modern and traditional forms of therapy ranging from the pain relieving adjustments from Dr. B and Dr. Ryan, the Standard Process cleanse, relaxing and stress relieving massages from Kendra to the fantastic and fast acting treatments of the Erchonia cold laser therapy and the ultra sound therapy. The entire staff’s attitude and overall general honesty, sincerity, and care they display to all patients, is one of the major reasons I continue to come to Barclay Chiropractic’s "cabin of relief!" I’m truly grateful for all their help!"

Treatment Options

Chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that gets you feeling better quickly , safely, and effectively.

How Is a Headache Evaluated?

Early diagnosis and treatment are important in identifying the underlying cause for your headaches. In most cases, an in-depth history and physical examination will help determine this.

Once the cause has been identified, we will develop a specific management plan to help eliminate your pain based on your individual needs.

What Is the Treatment for Headaches?

Chiropractors treat patients with tension-type headaches and as well as headaches caused by problems with the joints and muscles in the neck.

Adjustments of the neck, along with stretching and strengthening exercises, have been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of headaches. Massage and other forms of soft-tissue treatment can sometimes be helpful.

Scientists are also investigating other therapies, such as acupuncture, to prevent and treat this disorder.

Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, may be used for an occasional headache, but long-term use can lead to health complications such as gastrointestinal difficulties, liver problems, and kidney failure.
