What Is a Headache / migraine?

A migraine is a headache that can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours to days, and the pain can be so severe that it interferes with your daily activities.

Common Symptoms

Migraines, which affect children and teenagers as well as adults, can progress through four stages: prodrome, aura, attack and post-drome. Not everyone who has migraines goes through all stages.

Symptoms:

  • Prodrome: The first stage lasts a few hours, or it can last days. You may or may not experience it as it may not happen every time. Some know it as the “preheadache” or “premonitory” phase.
  • Aura: The aura phase can last as long as 60 minutes or as little as five. Most people don’t experience an aura, and some have both the aura and the headache at the same time.
  • Headache: About four hours to 72 hours is how long the headache lasts. The word “ache” doesn’t do the pain justice because sometimes it’s mild, but usually, it’s described as drilling, throbbing or you may feel the sensation of an icepick in your head. Typically it starts on one side of your head and then spreads to the other side.
  • Postdrome: The postdrome stage goes on for a day or two. It’s often called a migraine “hangover” and 80% of those who have migraines experience it.

What Are The Treatments For Headaches / Migraine?

Osteopathy is a holistic form of treatment where the practitioner is concerned with treating the patient rather than the condition.  Migraines are often triggered or worsened by stress, muscle tension, injuries, sinus pressure and incorrect posture.  An Osteopath can help manage all of these issues.

A variety of techniques can help to improve circulation in both the vascular and lymphatic systems and help to release muscle tension.  This can help to prevent muscle spasms, restore lost mobility and promote your body’s natural healing processes.  Have you ever massaged your temples when you have a headache?  Now imagine how a trained Osteopath could help relieve migraines.

I had a session with Rishi today...amazing and so friendly, informative and helpful. He has referred me to one of his team for ongoing treatments. Made me feel totally at ease. Feeling so much better already. He really knows his stuff! Don't delay getting those niggles seen to...the sooner you get them seen to the better!

I’ve seen Poonam, Christie and Warren and have enjoyed all of my sessions. Each of them have their own style and approach to treatment but the one thing they have in common is results. Any time I’ve gone in with an ache or a pain they’ve managed to work the problem at the cause and alleviate it. I’ve told all my friends and family to book in an appointment as couldn’t recommend them enough!
Priya Bhayani
I saw Nick last Saturday and the treatment was great. He doesn't mess around! I'm looking forward to seeing him again next week. I've seen around 10 Chiropractors/Osteopaths/Physios in my lifetime — he is the best. I highly recommend Nick.
