How can osteopathy help me for migraines and headaches?
Osteopathy treatment will promote blood circulation in the brain, joints and internal organs using specific manipulations and techniques which will drain and regulate problematic tensions, both relieving pain during the migraine and helping to prevent future attacks. Your osteopath will focus on reharmonizing the three diaphragms (cranial, thoracic, pelvic) to normalize tensions. They will assess and treat the coccyx, sacrum and internal organs, especially the stomach and uterus which are often in lesion. It will be necessary to drain the intracranial sinuses to optimise blood circulation too. The primary function of the osteopathic treatment is to restore functionality by improving blood cir
What are the causes and triggers of migraines and headaches?
Migraines are caused by vascular disorders within the skull and neurological issues such as face parathesias, visual disturbances or difficulties concentrating. The primary causes of these vascular and neurological disorders are complex but may include head injuries, car accidents that resulted in whiplash, cervical trauma, such as sprains and fractures, a fall landing on the coccyx or difficult birth deliveries that may have impacted the pelvic area.
Although reasons are complex, making it difficult to single one cause out, common triggers for migraines include:
- Hormonal (2/3 of women experience migraines related to their menstrual cycle)
- Psychological (stress, anxiety, exhaustion)
- Dietary (alcohol, hypoglycaemia, fasting, fats, chocolate, irregular meals)
- Traumas (head trauma, fall landing on the coccyx, whiplash)
- Behavioural (lack of sleep, unhealthy lifestyle)
What are the symptoms of severe migraines and headaches?
The headache will be located either on the left or right side of the brain. A throbbing pain is often accompanied with digestive issues, such as vomiting and nausea, sensitivity to noise and light, as well as neurological issues such as blurred vision and acute facial sensitivity. Migraines can appear sporadically and last for a few hours up to three days.
