Headaches ruin lives
Living with persistent headaches can quite simply, ruin your life. In the UK alone, an astounding 10 million people suffer from daily or regular headaches.Having previously suffered from migraines myself, I understand how debilitating it is and how the quality of your life can be ruined. Headaches and migraines often get attributed to stress and tension with many reaching for painkillers with little or no relief. What most people don’t know is that often there is a physical cause for their headaches, stemming from their neck
which can be successfully treated without medication. You don’t need to have neck pain for your headaches to be triggered from you neck.
The cure for pain isn’t painkillers
Apex Headache Clinic officially opened its doors in May 2012 although I have been treating headache and migraine sufferers for over 20 years. While spending the early part of my physiotherapy career in New Zealand,I sought treatment for my migraines, which were diagnosed as originating from my neck. Following treatment, to my amazement my migraines cleared and I have been migraine free ever since then.To be cleared of pain was life changing and Apex Headache Clinic was founded with the aim of helping others like myself.
The Nelson Headache Approach
Inspired by New Zealand and Australian physiotherapy approaches, I developed the Nelson Headache Approach. This is my own specialist regime of manual physiotherapy treatment to the neck to treat headaches and migraines. This approach is helping headache sufferers of all ages, including children and teenagers, business people, working mums and the elderly. Using the Nelson Headache Approach, our team of specialist physiotherapists at Apex Headache Clinic have a high success rate in curing persistent and longstanding cases,with patients travelling for miles to receive our specialist treatment.
Clearing patients’ pain for good
Keith Lockhart, Architect, from Belfast said:”I had suffered from painful, persistent headaches for more than 15 years. As a busy architect and father, my headaches were having a terrible impact on my professional and home life. After visiting Apex Clinic, I finally received relief from my headaches and after several weeks of treatment the headaches stopped completely. The difference this has made to my daily life is indescribable.”
