Migraine Osteopathy Treatment in London with our Specialised osteopath at home or in our practice

Our Osteopath has many years of training and experience treating migraines. Migraines being due to a large variety of causes, every migraine treatment will start by an assessment with our osteopath to define the cause of your migraines. The primary goal of osteopathy is to promote blood circulation in the body using specific manipulations, which will drain or regulate problematic tensions.

Most used Techniques to treat migraines by our London Osteopath

  • Re harmonisation of the 3 diaphragms (cranial, thoracic, pelvic) to normalise tensions
  • If needed, check and treat coccyx
  • Treatment of the sacrum and internal organs (especially the stomach which is often in lesion and the uterus)
  • Drainage of the intracranial sinuses to optimise blood circulation

Treatment’s primary function is to restore function functionality by improving blood circulation within internal organs, joints or brain.

Causes that are mainly treated for migraines are head injuries, car accidents with whiplash, cervical trauma (sprains and fractures), fall landing on the coccyx or difficult birth deliveries impacting the pelvic area.

What are Migraines?

Migraines are a form of headache located either on the left or right side of the brain. A throbbing pain is often accompanied with digestive issues (vomiting, nausea), sensitivity to noise and light, as well as neurological issues (blurred vision, acute sensitivity of the face).
Migraines appear sporadically and can last a few hours and up to three days.
Cause and effect factors are unknown and triggers can be multifactorial.
It is therefore necessary to study all those factors according to each individual case in order to find the appropriate treatment.

What Causes or triggers migraine?

In general, migraines are caused by vascular disorders within the skull and neurological issue such as face parathesias, visual disturbances or trouble concentrating.
What cause and trigger migraines is complex and causes are multiple thus it is difficult to single one cause out.

Most common migraine’s triggers:

  • 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)
