Headaches and Migraines

There are many different types and causes of headaches and migraines. Some people have a single trigger or cause, while others may have multiple. Neck strain, joint sprain, muscular tension, stress and poor posture are some of the very common triggers for many people. These triggers may respond well to treatment with manual therapy to reduce the pain and severity of headache and migraine

Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Acupuncture and Massage, may be effective for the treatment and management of headache and migraine. These therapies often complement standard medical care and can often reduce the need for pain relieving medications. They may provide a reliable, long-term solution especially when used together.

Osteopaths, in particular can identify more serious and sinister causes of pain when it comes to headaches and migraines. They are can also differentiate and diagnose the origin of the head pain. They will refer to other medical providers if they determine that the head pain requires further investigation. Osteopaths can refer for x-ray and MRI if required.

Often headaches are simply the cause of a regular bad habit in your day to day life. Some simple activity that you are undertaking or a postural imbalance. Osteopaths are trained to consider your daily experience when discussing your presentation at your appointments. This allows them to think differently about things that may be affecting you and where your pain is coming from. Perhaps it is an ergonomic desk setup problem, too much time on your phone, or you are undertaking your lifting at the gym wrong. come in, have a chat and let a qualified professional figure out your cause.
