Migraine Headache Physiotherapy
Migraine Headache Physiotherapy
Anyone who has ever experienced a migraine headache knows that they can be very, very painful. It can be so bad, that you can't even get out of bed, not to mention walk or work.
There is no shortage of patients unable to work, do what they love, spend time with loved ones because of migraine heaches. Some of the symptoms associated includes nausea, vomitting, light sensitivity and a lot of pain. For many patients, they experience a throbbing pain that is usually on just one side of their heads.
Some people who often gets migraines may get a "warning" sign, before the actual migraine starts. Some term this as a feeling, some term this as an "aura", and it's referring to a group of symptoms which includes disturbances in their vision, giddiness or an associated sensory feedback.
What most patients do when they get or know that a migraine headache is coming is that they reach for their painkillers. They may also have a presription by their GPs or neurologists.
We have been treating many patients with migraine headaches, given that we have a multidisciplinary team of physiotherapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, sports and conditioning coaches, and help them to decrease the migraines and gradually be recovered.
You see, what's most important is not just about treating the symptom of the migraine, which is pain (well, of course we manage the pain first and foremost) and then we delve deep into differential diagnostics to find out the main cause or core of the problem.
For migraine headaches, it can be caused by:
We do not involve any pills nor injections nor surgery - it's all manual therapy, where our therapists will first palpate the possible areas of problems and find out the cause.
If it's trigger points, we will do a series of trigger point release and myofascial release, combined with safe spinal mobilizations (we believe that the neck should never be manipulated, as it can cause stroke and even death).
If it's the case of a very stimulated and inflamed nerves and nervous system, we will employ gentler techniques to lower your body's nervous system. This approach is very useful if you had tried a lot of other solutions, medications; yet nothing seem to work.
