Fed up with migraine treatments that involve drugs and only ease the pain and symptoms temporarily?
The Melbourne Headache Centre offers fast, safe, natural and effective migraine treatment that addresses the underlying cause of your migraine.
While recent research has shown the neck to be contributing factor, our experience shows it to be a major contributor. Treating your neck with our techniques is proven to reduce the irritation of the nerves causing migraines.
We understand how frustrating and debilitating migraine headaches are and know our clients will ask us why our treatment will succeed when the best medical interventions they've tried haven't worked.
All Melbourne Headache Centre consultants use the Watson Headache ® Approach. This treatment is the result of the pioneering work of Australian physiotherapist Dean Watson. Watson has identified a previously ignored fault in the top of the neck responsible for overstimulating the brainstem and has discovered how to treat it.
Ground breaking research into the Watson Headache ® Approach shows very clearly that we can treat the common underlying problem in migraine headache - an overstimulated brainstem.
The area in the brainstem that houses all the nerves for the head and face (the trigeminal nucleus) is overstimulated constantly in people suffering migraines. The nerves from the upper three segments of the neck (C1-C3) feed directly into the trigeminal nucleus yet are dismissed as being irrelevant by conventional medicine. Sadly, this has led to a fault in the top of the neck being ignored and poorly treated, until now.
We know it sounds too good to be true. Why not find out for yourself and click the link to start your free online assessment.
Fast: Your initial treatment block lasts for only two weeks. The aim of this block is to alter the underlying dysfunction to such a point that successful self-management becomes possible.
Melbourne Headache Centre aims for self-management - not endless ongoing treatments!
At the end of this initial block there should be a significant improvement in symptoms, which will indicate that further treatment will be beneficial. Should significant improvement not be achieved in this time treatment will cease.
When clients receive benefits from the initial treatments, the ongoing treatment is rarely more than 2 or 3 more sessions.
This is because:
* you are effectively self-managing and you don't need further treatment, or
* the progression to self management has not been successful, in which case further treatment will rarely change that outcome.
Either way, our hands-on treatment ceases at this time, in all but the rarest of circumstances.
Natural: No drugs, toxic chemicals or side-effects. Just correcting a previously misunderstood fault in biomechanics and gently re-aligning parts of the body to unload tissues and nerves.
Effective: 80% of people assessed have treatable and relevant dysfunction. 90% of these will see significant changes in the first two weeks.
Safe: All techniques involve slow and sustained pressure. There is NO manipulation of the spine.
