Child's headaches

We have the cure for your child’s headaches or migraines

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

Headaches and migraines effect children too

We’re all aware that headaches and migraines are common in adults, but the fact of the matter is that children experience them too. Statistics show that approximately 70% of school children have a headache at least once a year, while one in four of these children experience recurring headaches. Furthermore, around 10% of school children suffer from migraines, effecting both boys and girls.

Are headaches making your child miserable?

At Apex Headache Clinic, we have witnessed the devastating effects that headaches can have on people’s lives. Parents often tell us that they have tried all options including consulting GPs, pediatricians, neurologists or opticians, in desperation to find a cure for their child’s headaches or migraines. When all else has failed, we offer hope to families, thanks to our drug-free specialist approach to treating and clearing headaches and migraines.

Apex Headache Clinic’s proven hands on approach

Apex Headache Clinic first opened its doors five years ago and we have been successfully treating patients from all over Ireland and the UK. We are proud of our immensely high success rate in clearing patients of their headaches, thanks to my own unique regime of manual physiotherapy techniques to the neck. It was whilst I was working as a physiotherapist in New Zealand, early in my career, that I sought treatment for my own headaches. 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.

Rebecca Nelson has trained all the team of specialist physiotherapists in her regime for treating and clearing headaches and migraines, from her experience of over 20 years of successfully treating these conditions.

Beth’s life was changed following treatment at Apex Headache Clinic

“My headaches began four years ago and have been present ever since. I attended several doctors’ appointments, and carried out all recommendations, with no relief at all. I was also sent to paediatricians at the hospital, and again the outcome was the same. We literally tried all angles and the pain continued to get worse and worse, with no relief from painkillers at all. As a teenager, the pain had a major impact on my life. Thankfully, I finally found Apex Headache Clinic. When I attended my first appointment, what I noticed straight away was that the team genuinely wanted to help. Nicole was confident that she could get to the source of the problem and it was the first bit of hope I’d felt in four years. To go from suffering headaches all day everyday, to the odd one is just unbelievable and Apex has truly changed my life.”  – Beth Neely, Ballycastle
