Headaches and Migraines

TREATMENT OF HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES

MIGRAINE AND HEADACHES CAN HAVE A VARIETY OF CAUSES AND A VARIETY OF TREATMENT APPROACHES CAN BE UTILISED TO HELP STOP THEM RECURRING.

A RESEARCH STUDY IN THE EARLY 1980s FOUND THAT THE MAJORITY OF SUFFERERS OF REGULAR HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES HAD DETECTABLE MUSCULO-SKELETAL MECHANICAL JOINT PROBLEMS, AND THESE CAN BE TREATED BY MANIPULATION, MASSAGE, OR PHYSICAL THERAPY TO PREVENT THE MECHANICAL CAUSES OF HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES. THE HIGHER LEVEL OF PAIN WITH MIGRAINES CAN CAUSE ADDITIONAL SYMPTOMS FROM ‘SHOCK-LIKE’ HORMONAL CHANGES IN THE BODY IN RESPONSE TO THE PAIN LEVELS.

DIRECT NERVE INTERFERENCE CAUSE OF HEADACHES (FOR EXAMPLE THE ACIDITY OF THE STOMACH CAN BE AFFECTED FROM THE TOP OF THE NECK), CAN BE QUICKLY CLEARED WITH TREATMENT.

PATIENTS COMMONLY INFER THE WORST SELF DIAGNOSIS FROM REGULAR HEADACHES WHEN STATISTICS ACTUALLY SHOW THAT SERIOUS PATHOLOGICAL DISEASE ACCOUNTS FOR A MINISCULE PROPORTION OF REGULAR HEADACHES.  DIRECT ACCESS TO HOSPITAL TESTING PROCEDURES CAN BE UTILISED TO SCREEN OUT SUCH CAUSES BEFORE TREATMENT.

MOST OF THE HEADACHE SYMPTOMS EMANATE FROM TIGHTNESS AND ALTERATION IN THE BONY CONFIGURATION OF THE UPPER BACK AND OUR PRACTITIONERS OFTEN FIND THEMSELVES TREATING THIS AREA BECAUSE THEIR KNOWLEDGE SHOWS THEM IN MANY CASES THAT THIS IS THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. LIKEWISE, HOWEVER, THE HEAD ITSELF CAN BENEFIT FROM THE THE VERY GENTLE CRANIAL RELEASE TECHNIQUES OF TENSION IN HEADACHE AND MIGRAINE SUFFERERS.

TENSION HEADACHES ARE VERY COMMON AND ARE EFFECTIVELY TREATED BY MASSAGE TECHNIQUES, OF WHICH A RANGE OF DIFFERENT STYLES ARE AVAILABLE FROM RINGMER NATURAL HEALTH CLINIC.
