Migraine Treatment

A migraine is a headache that causes severe throbbing pain or pulsing, usually on one side of the head. Some migraine sufferers also experience nausea, vomiting and extreme light and sound sensitivity. A migraine can last hours to days and severely impact normal activities.

The two most common migraines are classic migraine which is accompanied by an aura, and common migraine with no aura. Hormonal or menstrual migraines are triggered by changing levels of estrogen and progesterone.

People who suffer from classic migraines may experience auras such as visual disturbances, vision loss, difficulty speaking, pins and needles, and weakness in the face or one side of the body.

For migraine treatment and support, manual therapy can be beneficial. Treating stiffness and tension in the joints and muscles can help with migraine and tension headaches that originate from the neck. Osteopathic Practitioners, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, and Physiotherapists are qualified to assess the possible causes of your headache pain and set up a treatment plan for you.
