Using osteopathy in the treatment of migraine.
If you are looking for migraine treatment, our Osteopaths in Oxford regularly treat patients with all types of headaches and migraines. For anybody who has ever experienced the pain of migraines, you will certainly be able to understand just how painful and tiring dealing with migraines can be. It’s always comforting to hear that you are not the only person experiencing the effects of migraines, in fact, it’s assumed that around 15-20% of the population experience daily migraine attacks. Migraine headaches can be excruciatingly painful and are typically accompanied by physical signs such as nausea or vomiting, a raised level of sensitivity to noises and light and also in some cases temporary paralysis of the arm or legs. Osteopathy uses a range of techniques such as mobilisation, soft tissue/ massage, and joint manipulation, all treatment is tailored to the individual patient and patient comfort levels are the utmost of importance throughout treatment.

I discovered the practice following an injury to my back and shoulders. Sophie is confident, competent and made me feel totally at ease. She will only treat to the point where you can effectively self-manage (something she is particularly good at teaching you to do) but is always a email away should you need further treatment. I highly recommend the practice to you, you will not be disappointed!
