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.

I’ve seen several osteopaths at Fulham Osteopaths over the past 3 years. All have been excellent and assisted with pain in pregnancy, migraines and back/neck tension . Staff is also friendly and helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this practice!

My experience with Giulia is incredibly positive. I have suffered from chronic back pain and coccydinia for over two years and have seen many different specialists during that time. Since I started working with Giulia I have seen by far the strongest improvement in my conditions. Our weekly craniosacral therapy appointments have definitely reduced the pain in my back and clearly improved my overall posture. I am really happy with the progress and will continue to see her in the future. I could not recommend her enough.

Amazing experience when we brought our newborn son. Katie was super knowledgeable and made us feel as ease straight away. She helped ease any concerns and the osteopath treatment was brilliant. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough for baby and parent.

We have been seeing Melinda with our little one since he was 3 weeks. After the first session, I noticed a significant improvement in his latch and posture. We have really appreciated the small exercises suggested which we can leverage to keep improving. Also, the little videos are a really kind extra thought, and helps us remember things we may have forgotten after the session (especially with the lack of sleep). Melinda has been a wealth of knowledge at every session, and our little one is so calm in her presence.
