Natural Headache & Migraine Treatment
Muscle tension and joint restriction in the neck, shoulders and jaw, may cause headaches. With these restrictions and tightness in the head and scalp area, blood supply is reduced, which can then cause pain.
Osteopathic treatment aims to gently ease these restrictions, improving the blood supply to the tissues, which can relieve the pain.
Why am I in pain?
Unless there has been a specific trauma, e.g. from a car accident, fall, or sporting injury, headache and migraine problems in adulthood generally tend to be a result of stresses that have accumulated over the years, until the body’s compensatory mechanisms begin to breakdown. It is important to note that high blood pressure and eye strain can also cause headaches.
Your osteopath will complete a thorough case history and examination, to determine what may be causing your headaches or migraines. They will then explain whether or not you need to see your GP or another health professional, or whether osteopathic treatment can help you.
If osteopathic treatment is appropriate , they will explain how many treatments you need, and what they expect to happen over the course of the treatment.
