Migraines are a common neurological condition that can cause many symptoms. Migraines often run in families and can affect all ages.

According to Migraine and Headache Australia, 4.9 million people in Australia suffer from migraines. Migraines are more common in women with 71% of migraine sufferers being female. 86% of those who suffer from migraines are of working age.

What symptoms do migraines cause?

Symptoms include intense, debilitating headaches, nausea, vomiting, difficulty speaking, numbness or tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can last from anywhere between 4 to 72 hours. 

What are traditional treatments for the pain caused by migraines?

Traditional treatments for the pain caused by migraines include over the counter painkillers, chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, relaxation techniques, hypnotherapy, avoiding certain ‘trigger’ food/drinks, and prescription medication.

Are there alternative options for the treatment of migraine pain?

If you are experiencing long-term issues with the pain caused by migraines and have tried other medications that haven’t worked for you, we encourage you to seek medical advice and speak with one of our experienced practitioners.

After assessing your specific needs, our practitioners can offer you the medical advice and support you need to take control of your pain through alternative treatment options.
