Fewer, less intense headaches

Better neck movement

Reduced stress levels

Chronic headaches and migraines can be a burden on your life – they don’t just cause you pain and discomfort, but they can impact your social life, work life and even family life.

An Osteopath can help treat your headaches so you can spend more time doing the things you want, without the stress and burden of chronic headaches.

If you’re searching for more than just a temporary fix, but a lasting solution to break free from the cycle of headaches and migraines, you’re in the right place.

Common headache and migraine symptoms you may be experiencing:

Intense Head Pain

Pain is often on one side of the head but can be on both sides. The nature of pain is typically throbbing, aching, or pulsing.

Sensitivity to Light, Sound and Smell

During a migraine attack, you may find bright lights, loud sounds, or strong odours overwhelmingly uncomfortable.

Nausea and Vomiting

This can be a frequent and distressing symptom, often exacerbating the head pain.

Visual Disturbances

Some migraine sufferers (migraine with aura) may experience blurred vision, blind spots in the field of vision, or bright colored or flashing lights.

Physical Activity Worsens Pain

Even routine activities like walking or climbing stairs can intensify the head pain during a migraine crisis.

Neck Stiffness or Pain

Particularly for chronic tension-type headaches, neck discomfort or stiffness is often a significant issue.

These symptoms can severely impact your quality of life, often leading to frequent days away from work and interruptions to daily activities, like playing with your children or enjoying time with friends.
