Apex Headache Clinic may have the cure for your child’s headaches / migraines

Does your child suffer from frequent headaches or migraines? This month, Apex Headache Clinic Founder and Spinal & Headache Physiotherapy Specialist, Rebecca Nelson shares how the team at Ireland’s first drug-free headache and migraine clinic, has been successfully using her evidence based manual physiotherapy regime to clear children and teenagers of their headaches and migraines.

Children suffer from headaches and migraines too

While it’s widely known that adults suffer from headaches and migraines, it might surprise you to learn that 70% of school children have a headache at least once a year, with 25% of these children experiencing recurring headaches. Furthermore, a staggering 10% of school children suffer from migraines, affecting both girls and boys.

Are headaches ruining your child’s life?

At Apex Headache Clinic, our team frequently sees the devastating consequences that headaches can have on lives. Parents often come to the clinic, after trying all other avenues, including consulting GPs, paediatricians, neurologists and opticians, in desperation to find a cure for their child’s headaches or migraines. At Apex Headache Clinic, we offer hope to families, thanks to our drug-free specialist approach to treating and clearing headaches and migraines.

The Nelson Headache Approach™

Our approach of treating and clearing headaches/ migraines, called The Nelson Headache Approach™ is offered in no other clinics in Northern Ireland, and its high success rate explains why people travel from all over the UK and southern Ireland for this treatment.

It was whilst I was working as a physiotherapist in New Zealand, early in my career, that I sought treatment for my own migraines. These were diagnosed as stemming from my neck, and following treatment, I have been pain-free ever since. The change this had on my life was indescribable.

With years of experience of treating headaches and migraines sufferers, I further developed a regime for treating and clearing headaches and migraines. We offer this unique, drug-free approach to all ages, including children and teenagers.

Rachel’s life was changed after visiting Apex Headache Clinic

15-year-old Rachel Caldwell’s visit to Apex Headache Clinic restored the quality of her life.

She said: “My headaches began four years ago when I was 11. They would last all day long and felt like a tight band circling my head with a constant pain at the top of my neck. These got worse and worse until they became a daily occurrence and suddenly this horrible pain was consuming my life. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to Rebecca and her team. I can now live my life like any normal teenager for the first time in five years. I never thought I would end up where I am now with my life back on track and looking forward to the future again.”
