What can Help Treat Migraines

Hi, I’m Joanna from Cram Osteopaths. I wanted to post a video today to talk about headaches and migraines. This is something that we see absolutely tons of in clinic. If you’re a migraine sufferer, it may be that you’re getting auras, flashing lights or colours that warn you that a migraine is coming on. It may be really disrupting your life and causing you to have to leave work early or stop work altogether for a couple of days in really severe cases.

It can be a very difficult condition and often people feel that the only solution is to keep taking the medicine each time they feel that migraine coming, but the good news is that we have lots of success at Cram Osteopaths with helping migraine sufferers, reduce the severity of the migraines and the frequency by using nice, gentle osteopathic treatment to release the tension around the upper back, the neck joints, the shoulders, the jaw, and the cranium. This treatment can involve mobilisations and gentle osteopathic adjustments where you may hear some clicking and popping, as long as it’s appropriate for that patient. We would talk through all of that beforehand and usually a short course of treatment is enough to begin to make a change and then do reviews moving forward.

So if you are suffering with migraines and it’s something you’ve had for years, and you feel like you’re running out of options, please do get in touch with us at Cram Osteopaths and let us have a look at you. Let us assess it and have a good discussion about what we can do going forward. Put a treatment plan together and look at all the different treatment options.

In my next video we’ll talk about those that maybe haven’t responded to manual treatment, they’ve maybe tried everything else before and we will talk about what else we can offer at Cram Osteopaths in Glasgow.
