Osteopathy for Headache and Migraine
Living with headache or migraine?Our Osteopaths regularly assess, diagnose and treat people experiencing headache and migraine. Living with these conditions can be exhausting and tough. People often think they have to live with them forever. If you have concern about how much pain relief medication you are taking to control them, it may be time to consider something new, such as Osteopathy. Osteopaths use a hands-on therapeutic approach, commonly used to alleviate the pain and stress associated with numerous types of headache and migraine.
A headache originating from a neck complaint or from increased tension are the most common types of headache.The osteopath may assist with cervicogenic (neck), tension headaches and migraine. Treatment aims to improve the quality of movement in the neck, reduce muscular tension, decrease pain, optimise blood flow and reduce irritation of nerves.
Lifestyle considerationsOur osteopaths have experience treating people suffering with headache and regularly provide advice on posture, exercises, dietary factors and stress management support that may be of assistance. By reducing the frequency and severity of pain, less pain relief should be required over time. You may wonder why you should see an Osteopath rather than another health care provider.
