Qualified and registered osteopath Mr Ray Daniels stated, “Awareness of osteopathy as a potential treatment for headaches and migraine is low, yet it can be a very easy and timely intervention to abort headache symptoms and improve patient well-being.”
Migraine is a common disorder with a prevalence in the population of 6% in men and 18% in women. Studies comparing the efficacy of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), drugs (triptans) and sham therapies demonstrated that there was a significant difference between the group being treated with OMT compared to the drug and sham therapy groups, suggesting that OMT can be considered a valid procedure for the management of patients with migraine. Headaches often have more than one cause—physical, psychological, and pharmacological. Each cause requires treatment. Mr Daniels starts by systematically eliminating specific headache triggers to arrive at the root cause of the issue.
Osteopathy treatment is administered through drug-free, non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. Osteopathy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care. Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body, to provide overall good health and well-being. It is a form of medicine that focuses on the cause of illness. In effect, it is a science and philosophy of the human body.
Office workers and those suffering from chronic conditions, particularly headache and migraine may be able to find relief for their pain through non-invasive osteopathic treatments. My Daniels encourages patients to contact Better Bodies Osteo for special osteopathy treatments designed to promote better musculoskeletal health while at work for an enhanced sense of wellbeing.
