Treatment and Relief from Headache & Migraine

The Headache & Migraine Specialist group would like to thank Premier Build Ltd, Essex, for inviting us onto their website to promote out services.

The Headache & Migraine Specialist group represents a network of clinical physiotherapists and neurologists. Our members have a shared commitment to improving the quality of life of headache and migraine sufferers. We share best practice, we are informed by the latest clinical research and we work towards a set of common principles and practices to ensure the best quality and consistent care throughout the group.

Traditional Headache & Migraine Treatment

Pain is often described as chronic or acute. Chronic pain usually refers to pain that is of low intensity but continuous while acute pain is of a shorter duration but debilitating. For some sufferers, headache and migraine can be both chronic and acute and even when it is not present, patients live in constant anxiety of the next attack.

Many sufferers report common experiences when seeking treatment for headache and migraine.

This isn’t surprising. In our experience, most causes of head pain are over overlooked because medical practitioners are often looking in the wrong place.

Underlying Causes of Headaches and Migraines

Research shows that there are a number of factors that affect an individual’s likelihood of suffering from headache and migraine.

Research and clinical experience shows that a fifth category should be added to this list. It is this component that is often overlooked in the diagnosis of headaches & migraines.

These causal factors can build up until a pain threshold is reached, triggering acute headache & migraine.

Cervicogenic Headaches and Migraine

Cervicogenic pain refers to pain emanating from the cervical spine and in particular from the top of the shoulders and the neck. Pain signals from the neck and shoulder pass into the brain stem where they share synapses with the trigeminal nerves that are connected to the head and the face. With cervicogenic headache, normal sensory information from the trigeminal nerves becomes misinterpreted as head pain and so the originating cause is easily misdiagnosed.

Direct physiotherapeutic treatment of neck and shoulder pain reduces the cumulative effects of the factors that can contribute to headache & migraine. Up to 90% of patients suffering from headaches & migraines report significant benefits from physiotherapy of the neck and shoulders.

Assessment and Treatment of Headaches and Migraines

Assessment and Treatment of Headaches and Migraines

It is vital to screen for more serious underlying causes of headache & migraine. Most headaches and migraines are not life-threatening but it is advisable to talk to your GP if you develop sudden or severe symptoms, especially if these are different from previous attacks.

Our physiotherapists and clinicians offer a triage service from the first point of contact. Specially trained headache & migraine therapists take a thorough medical history before beginning any treatment and look at all aspects of medical history and lifestyle. Cervicogenic causes of headache can be determined by temporarily reproducing the symptoms by stressing certain tissues in the neck. This allows for more specific diagnosis and more effective treatment.

For patients with cervicogenic headaches, once the areas of dysfunction have been confirmed, carefully manipulating neck and shoulder muscles and realigning spinal segments helps to ease the symptoms. With the correct treatment, most patients find the pattern and intensity of headaches starts to change very quickly.

Further Information / Contact Us

The intention is to expand the Headache & Migraine Specialist network throughout the UK. We are always happy to hear from neurologists, therapists and GP’s who are interested in joining. At present, membership is strongest in London, Essex, Hertfordshire and the South East of England.
