Say goodbye to headaches, migraines, vertigo & tinnitus
This month, Apex Headache Clinic founder and spinal and headache physiotherapy specialist, Rebecca Nelson, discusses headaches, migraines, vertigo and neck-related tinnitus and how Apex Headache Clinic is treating and clearing these debilitating conditions.
Are headaches or migraines making you miserable?
Persistent headaches and migraines can literally ruin the quality of people’s lives,leaving them desperate to find a solution that brings relief to their pain.Many people don’t realise that headaches or migraines can be triggered from damage, stiffness or stress in the structures of the upper neck region. Poor posture or hours spent hunched over desks and computers can cause persistent neck-triggered headaches and migraines, as can repeated heavy lifting, a previous fall or an accident.At Apex Headache Clinic we understand your pain. We know, from years of treating headaches and migraines, that specialist physiotherapy rather than painkillers can be the long-term cure that you are looking for.
Is vertigo or dizziness ruining your life?
Dizziness originating from the upper neck region of the spine is called cervical vertigo and is commonly overlooked as a source of vertigo. It originates from stiffness or damage of the upper two neck joints of the spine. Often, the person has no actual neck pain, only dizziness. At Apex Headache Clinic, we have been successfully diagnosing and treating cervical vertigo for years with our unique regime of manual treatment to the upper neck region. On arrival at the clinic, one of our specialist physiotherapists will assess your neck to establish if it is involved in causing your vertigo and to differentiate it from vertigo from the inner ear (vestibular vertigo). A treatment plan can then be started to clear it. One of the features of cervical vertigo is that it does not respond to drugs given for inner ear vertigo.
Is tinnitus getting you down?
Tinnitus can be experienced as a ringing,hissing, whistling, buzzing or clicking sound that can be intermittent, or constant. It is an intrusive, annoying and, in some cases,devastating condition for sufferers. Although often associated with damage to the hearing system, tinnitus can be caused by injury or stiffness of the upper neck joints. The good news regarding tinnitus triggered from the neck is that, in most cases, it can be treated and cleared at Apex Headache Clinic.
Treat and beat pain at its source
As with all niggles, aches and pains, we recommend that you get to the root cause of your symptoms as soon as possible. Once diagnosed, Apex Headache Clinic’s specialist manual physiotherapy treatment regimes can clear all of these conditions, restoring your quality of life and allowing you to get on enjoying life pain-free.
