We can help alleviate your headaches or migraines. Our approach embodies the use of up to date research and techniques to bring you the best results. There are many causes of headaches and migraines. Often people come to us as a last resort having crossed a lot of other causes from the list or still frustrated as medical treatment offers them little relief without strong side effects from drugs. Clinical Myotherapy can give you relief and reduce the need for drugs in a cost effective manner.

Here’s how we treat headaches and migraines.

Step 1. We assess the underlying cause of your headache or migraine. No matter what triggers are involved current research is pointing towards the upper neck being a major cause of headaches and migraines. We will start with the assessment of your neck and trigger points that can refer to the head (usually found in the shoulders and upper back) to determine how effectively we will be able to help you.

Step 2. We treat using body movements, dry needling and other techniques to get rid of any current symptoms. We use what is most appropriate for you on the day. Sometimes our patients feel quite ill with their headache or migraine so we keep this in mind. Some of our patients come in without symptom and this is fine too. Our treatment will still be effective. We treat the person not just the condition.

Step 3. Many of our patients already know their headache and migraine triggers but for those who need assistance in this area we can help to identify triggers however with treatment our aim is that those triggers will become less and less of a problem.

Step 4. We teach you how to perform special movements to combat the underlying cause of your headache or migraine. These movements can relieve a headache or migraine before it takes hold and help to reeducate your system so the triggers get less and less as time goes on. This also means less need for medication.

Treatment techniques.

  • Dry Needling to release active trigger points referring into your pain zone
  • Active Cupping to release tight fascia that’s stopping the muscles from moving freely
  • Joint Mobilisation to release locked up joints creating unnecessary stress on your system
  • Manual trigger point release for those who prefer not to use dry needling
  • Deep Massage techniques to calm the nervous system by creating a release of endorphins and other feel good hormones to help relieve pain naturally
  • McKenzie Method ® with Dwan Rosairo and Sarah Hall only

We can use one or several of these techniques. It’s all about figuring out what works best for you however we will not use a treatment technique that you aren’t comfortable with. We look forward to helping you get rid of your headache and migraines once and for all!
