Headache & Migraine Relief With Osteopathy

Based In North Lakes & Ashgrove

Osteopathy for Headaches & Migraines

Living with constant headaches or migraines and getting fed up with the pounding in your head? Our osteopaths regularly assess, diagnose, and treat people experiencing regular headaches and migraines. There are multiple types of headaches, with tension-type headaches, migraine, and cluster headaches being some of the most common types. At Still Point Osteopathy, we are trained to differentiate between headaches with common causes (such as muscular tension, poor posture, eye strain, whiplash injuries, and teeth grinding), and those due to serious pathology where we will refer you to your doctor as required.

Evidence Based Approach

Our practitioners use a combination of current literature and clinical experience to achieve the best results for you

What causes headaches & migraines?

Anything that stimulates the pain receptors in the head and neck can cause a headache. This includes anything from poor posture, stress, eye strain, and sinus congestion to whiplash, teeth grinding, allergies, and infections. The most common type of headache originates from muscle stiffness or joint strain in the neck and upper thoracic (upper back) region.

Whatever the cause, our Brisbane osteopaths at North Lakes and Ashgrove can help to assess and diagnose the underlying issue and work towards a treatment together.

How can osteopathy help my headache or migraine?

Our osteopaths have detailed knowledge about the musculoskeletal system and its functions that can help us understand your pain. The practice is holistic in nature, meaning we look at the whole body and how one small injury in one place may affect the rest of your body and cause dysfunction. This skillset helps us determine the most effective course of action for you based on an initial consultation that includes a thorough medical history and an understanding of your lifestyle habits and diet. 

The goal is to enhance your general mobility, reduce muscular tension, nerve compression, and inflammation as well as increase blood supply and drainage to and from the head and neck to prevent congestion and pressure. To reach these goals, we may work with you on your posture, diet and hydration, exercises and stretching, and improving the ergonomics of your home or office.

Osteopathic treatment for headaches and migraines is suitable for all ages and may be covered under your private health insurance policy. The individualised treatment plan provided to you by our team at Still Point Osteopathy will help reduce the symptoms of your headache or migraine by focusing on the health of your muscles, bones, and joints.

The number of appointments your osteopath requires will depend on the severity of your problem and how quickly you respond to treatment. Some patients may need just two or three treatments before their pain is relieved, while others may require more extensive therapy over a longer period of time. In the event that an X-ray or MRI is needed to diagnose your pain, your osteopath will refer you for further testing.

I have been seeing Phil in regards to a chronic neck pain issues as well as various other muscular issues. Whenever I see him for a treatment he takes the time to understand how I am experiencing the issue in my body and works with me to create a treatment plan. It’s a refreshing change to feel heard and seen as an individual. I have found him to be professional, kind and knowledgeable. I recommend Phil highly and continue to go there myself. I have also been to the Ashgrove clinic and recommend it as well.
