A lot of women link headaches and migraines to pregnancy and menopause. But what really is the truth behind experiencing headaches and migraines during periods of pregnancy and menopause? Here is what Dr. Beth, an Osteopath at Melbourne Headache Solutions explained.
There had been a lot of confusion surrounding the effects of pregnancy and menopause on headaches and migraines. That’s what we are going to make clear of. According to Dr. Beth, when women go through pregnancy or menopause, there are many hormonal changes that the body experiences and that is how they affect headaches and migraines. When you go through these periods, things tend to fluctuate up and down and there are three possible things that could happen to the headaches or migraines that you are suffering from.
One of these three things happens but obviously, you want the first possibility to occur....
If you are suffering from headache and migraine, you would often resort to taking pain medications. But we all know that it is not the best long term solution.
If you suffer frequent attacks, taking pain medications every time can have adverse effects on the body.
Is there another option you can take to actually prevent headaches and migraines from coming on?
What can you do to decrease the intensity and frequency of the pain?
Fortunately, there is another way to relieve the pain without causing harm to the body.
There are quite a few supplements that you can take to help with the pain.
Natural supplementation can actually help you deal with your headaches and migraines - sometimes more effectively than medications.
As mentioned several times before, brain stem sensitization is the underlying disorder in headaches and migraines. Essentially, many things can contribute to brain stem sensitization. One of the major contributing...
Headaches and migraines have detrimental effects on the body especially the neck and shoulders that can get really uncomfortable during attacks. If you have been suffering from headaches and migraines, chances are, you feel chronically tight through your neck and shoulders. Rather than getting a massage to deal with it, Dr. Beth, at Osteopath at Melbourne Headache Solutions shares a helpful exercise that significantly reduces that sort of tension you feel around your neck and shoulders.
But before performing the exercise, we need to run through a test to see if you really need it. There are some techniques to know that. Here’s how it is done.
In a standing position, pop your hands on your hips and you control your shoulders all the way to your ears and then all the way down, trudging all the way up and then way down. Repeat this step. Your shoulder blades should move evenly and smoothly with one another. If they are clunking instead of moving smoothly, that is a good...
There is often a vital element missed in treatment, which means that you are still a headache/migraine waiting to happen 24/7. When this vital element is missed during the treatment, you often see little to no results happening or you see changes happening for a short period of time but then those changes stop and you go back to the original state of pain. Basically, you are not seeing the changes that you want to happen at all.
What is this vital element and what can you do to treat it? That is what Dr. Beth, an Osteopath at Melbourne Headache Solutions, is going to explain.
For headache and migraine sufferers, very commonly, we put on medications that we honestly do not have idea what they are doing us. Or alternatively, you are getting manual therapy to your body that makes limited changes. But again, you are not seeing those long term results that you are after.
Taking medication may help to relieve the pain but afterwards, it won’t totally go away....
It strikes me every day just how much people have lost to migraines.
"I want to feel like myself again" is a common statement we hear. We deserve better...we deserve more. Don't lose anything else to migraines. Want to speak to our headache experts personally? Schedule your free 15 min. call here https://www.melbourneheadachesolutions.…
“I can feel it in my bones” – but can you really?
Does the weather really affect my headaches and migraines?
Anecdotally, it has been said for many years that the weather can play a role in the perception of pain. People often state that they can predict a change in the weather by noticing pain in an area they may have injured years earlier or any arthritic joints they may have. More specifically, migraine and headache sufferers often report certain weather conditions causing a headache/migraine as well as increasing the intensity of their symptoms associated with their migraine/headache.
But how true is this?
Well, it turns out there is some truth to it.
According to the American Migraine Foundation, more than a third of people with migraines claim that weather patterns trigger their headaches, at least some of the time. Weather-related triggers also may worsen a headache caused by other triggers.
The most likely cause...
