Migraines & Headaches Explained In Plain English

There are two common kinds of headaches, tension headache and migraine. They are both quite different, and some unfortunate people have both!

It varies from a dull ache that comes and goes in the back of your head, to shooting pain over the head and behind your eyes.

Sometimes with rest and time things improve, but more often the problem doesn’t get 100% better and feels achy, painful or vulnerable. It often just comes and goes. This means you are stuck, afraid of getting back to normal activities. Lets look at both kinds a bit more deeply.

Tension Headache

Typically, trouble in the top of your neck leads to tension and spasm in the muscles that anchor your head to your neck. The small joints in your neck are strained, the nerves to your head are irritated, and the end result is headache. The problem in your head comes from your neck, and the neck must be properly treated to get long term relief. We have specialised in treating headache for many years, and can say with confidence that we have a protocol for treatment which is gentle, safe and highly effective, with over 90% of patients achieving complete relief from tension headache pain.

Migraine

Often this comes in a wave, so you know it is coming, and builds to a crescendo which can last days. It often comes with nausea, eye sensitivity and dizziness. It is a problem with the control of blood flow in your brain, which is why it is “triggered”, by food, the weather or hormone cycles. It is frustrating to try to figure out triggers, and avoid them. This is because migraine is caused by blood vessel constriction, but you get the migraine when the tension releases. You must treat the cause of the blood vessel constriction in the first place or you will never be free of it. This is more difficult to treat than tension headache, but we treat reflexes from the spine that irritate the nerves to the blood vessels, treatment that steadily reduces the frequency and severity of the migraine.

How Does An Osteopath Treat Migraines & Headaches?

We have run a specialist headache clinic for over twenty years, helping thousands of people achieve complete relief of their pain. We have a special protocol which relaxes the neck and takes away the neck and head pain (and it’s causes), so that the tension which creates your headache is removed, and the pain steadily reduces.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show drastic improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected. For example, many issues with dizziness, brain fog and even digestion are resolved when your headache is relieved.

We have written an interesting and informative Blog post about Headache and it’s causes, you can read it here.

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
