Why Osteopathy is great for treating migraines

Are you struggling with migraines?

Migraines are more than headaches. They can wipe you out for days and leave you feeling totally depleted.
If you’re experiencing migraines, it is a good idea to check in with one of our Osteopaths. We can help to release tension in your muscles, joints and nerves, promoting natural healing.

What is a migraine?

Migraine is a common and distressing disorder. Typically it is a moderate or severely throbbing headache, on one-side of the head.
Migraine headaches are often aggrevated movement and activity and can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
You may also experience increased sensitivity to light, sound and certain smells.

How can Osteopathy help migraines?

Osteopathic treatments target the underlying physical conditions that cause chronic pain and illness.
Through hands-on therapy, Osteopathy can relax muscle spasms and release areas of tension in the body. This allows better movement and drainage of body fluids and assists the body’s natural healing process.
Osteopathic treatment can help relieve migraine pain. Treatment can also help restore the body’s ability to function and move well.

What we do

Our Osteopath’s can help you better understand your migraine disorder and minimise the effect of migraine triggers.
Your migraine treatment focuses on relieving tension in the muscles of the neck and shoulders, as well as around the base of the skull and the jaw. These areas impact migraine by directly affecting blood flow and the sensitivity of nerves inside your head.
We also look at your posture and correct any imbalances in the body caused by growth, work, illness, injury or habit.
By improving posture and releasing muscle tension we aim to provide you with long-term migraine relief and management.
Osteopathy can work in combination with migraine medication prescribed by your doctor or naturopath.
