Treatment for migraines
Migraines can have a significant negative impact on people’s lives. Absence from work or school and missing out on social events due to migraines are not uncommon. We want to help you to live the life you want to again.
The causes of migraines are often complex and multifactorial (lots of different things trigger them). You have probably already tired lots of different treatments for migraine.
As osteopaths we look for mechanical issues within the head, neck, muscles and even jaw, which may be significant triggers for your migraines.
Treatment for migraines works by reducing some of these mechanical triggers and identifying other factors such as lifestyle, diet. We can help to relieve your pain and manage your migraines better.
