MIGRAINE & HEADACHE FREQUENCY
She suffers from tension type headache every single day which has gotten worse over the past 2 years.

TRIGGERS

PREVIOUS TREATMENTS
She has tried numerous forms of treatment including physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture, naturopath, myopathy, ENT and many different types of medications. She has had MRI scans of the brain and X-rays which reveal nothing abnormal.

DIAGNOSIS
Chronic Migraines
Daily Tension Type Headache

CAUSE?
The primary cause of her headaches and migraines was found to be due to a disturbance in her brainstem. Her brainstem along with her trigeminal nerve was found to be hypersensitive. This was as a result of an issue along there upper three cervical spine whereby a disc disturbance was found between the second and third vertebrae. Her headache and migraine symptoms and pain were easily reproducible upon sustained pressure along the upper three cervical spine, indicating that her brainstem was at fault.

TREATMENT
Treatment began in order to desensitise her brainstem. This was done by correcting her disc disturbance, then desensitising her trigeminal nerve through careful manual therapy of the upper three cervical spine.

RESULT
By the second session her daily headaches were no longer daily and every second to third day.
By the third session her daily headaches stopped and was experiencing one headache every second week
By the sixth session her migraine attack cycle stopped from being every 3 weeks and went 8 weeks between a migraine attack.
She continues to undergo treatment and her headache and migraine frequency of attack continues to improve.

OUTCOME
She currently reports that her life has improved dramatically. She no longer suffers from daily headaches which burdens her daily activities. She also feels amazed that she no longer requires daily neurofen plus. Previously she was taking on average 2-6 tablets every single day. She can focus and concentrate better at work, and her severe migraines are no longer affect her on a three weekly basis.

We wish this pleasant lady all the very best in her future endeavours and we look forward to seeing her continue to improve with a plan of resolving her headaches and migraines completely.

Imagine a life free from headaches ???
