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

We went to see Katherine for our 4 month baby who was very agitated during the nights. Katherine was very thorough in her investigation, explaining in details what she was doing. She was extremely kind and gentle with our baby. The sessions tremendously improved our boy's sleep. Plus she's super friendly so it's always nice as parents to go and see her! We cannot recommend her enough, thanks Katherine!

I’ve been seeing Constantino (Tino) for my treatment, he’s helped me very much. He’s very good & professional at what he does. I previously had a lot of problems with my neck, stiffness and pain, which was affecting my daily life. After a few sessions the pain has gone away. I’m able to do the things I enjoy again. Tino is a very good Osteopath, the best around in my experience.

I had back pain in the latter stages of my pregnancy and Verena used a combination of osteo treatment and suggested exercises to realign my hips and loosen my back in order to alleviate the pain. I was impressed of her knowledge of all things pregnancy related and felt in very safe, capable hands. Highly recommend.

I have been seeing Verena for about a month now and I am very happy with both the service and results, my only regret is i wish i had came to see her sooner!I feel every session is always informative, detailed and the treatment is always in depth. It has really speeded up my sports injury so that i can get back to it.I will be continuing to visit frequently for a general MOT and could not recommend the clinic and Verana enough.

I visited Verena for my back pain, tension, neck pain in my body due to having a new baby who had a feeding and sleeping problem. Her amazing hands released the pain and tension in my body just after 2 sessions, she also recommend some exercise for me to do at home, that exercise really helps my body. Thanks a lot Verena, looking forward to my session tomorrow.

We visited Verena for our 4 month baby sleep problem and tongue tie. After the first session, our baby relaxed a lot and had a great sleep for the next couple of days. Verena’s magical hands have released all the tension from our baby and our baby is much happier when breastfeeding. Looking forward to our 3rd session tomorrow morning. It really changed our life in a better way, thanks a lot, and highly recommended.

Went to see Giulia with a terrible back, shoulder and neck pain. She sorted me out and other long term issues. I’m painless, taller and straighter! Really happy I met her.

Melinda has been amazing! She’s really helped me to recover postpartum and I wish I visited her during my pregnancy. I had quite a few complicated issues due to my pregnancy and she really helped me to feel like myself again. My postpartum recovery wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much with your magic touch!

Excellent service and very professional. I was in a lot of back pain and Tino fixed it after just the first appointment! He also recommended some great exercises to prevent it happening again - I would highly recommend.
