It’s time to stop headaches or migraines ruining your life

Apex Headache Clinic, Belfast, is Ireland’s first drug-free headache and migraine clinic. An experienced team of expert Headache Physiotherapy Specialists is led by clinic founder and Spinal & Headache Physiotherapy Specialist, Rebecca Nelson. This month, Rebecca shares the message that getting to the root cause of headaches or migraines, rather than painkillers, is the essential secret to curing them.

The statistics on headaches are shocking

At Apex Headache Clinic, we see everyday how headaches can ruin lives, leaving the sufferer desperate to find a long term solution to relieve their pain. In the UK, a shocking 10 million people suffer from daily or recurring headaches. Having previously suffered from migraines myself as a teenager and young adult, I fully understand how devastating it can be to live with constant pain.

From years of treating headaches and migraines at Apex Headache Clinic, we know that specialised physiotherapy treatment, rather than painkillers is usually the cure.

The first drug-free headache clinic in Ireland

Apex Headache Clinic sees people travelling from all over the UK and Ireland to avail of our specialist treatment. We firmly believe that the cure for pain isn’t painkillers and in fact, it is commonly recognised that excessive medication actually makes many headaches worse. Instead, using my own unique, specialised regime of manual physiotherapy techniques to the neck called the Nelson Headache Approach, we have a very high success rate in clearing patients of their headaches and migraines.

The source of your headaches may surprise you

During the early part of my physiotherapy career in New Zealand, over 25 years ago, it was discovered that my migraines, were actually originating from my neck, even although I had no neck pain. Following treatment in New Zealand, my migraines cleared and I have been pain-free ever since. To be cleared of this pain completely changed my life and so, I later launched Apex Headache Clinic with the aim of providing a cure to other headache and migraine sufferers like myself.

The Nelson Headache Approach™

This regime was inspired by my experience of treating headaches in New Zealand. The Nelson Headache Approach™ is my own specialist regime of manual physiotherapy treatment for headaches and migraines and has successfully been used in patients of all ages. All of our specialist physiotherapists have been extensively trained in this approach and we have a very high success rate in curing persistent, longstanding headaches and migraines. The Nelson Headache Approach is only available in Apex Headache Clinic, Belfast and in no other clinic at this time.

Say goodbye to your headaches for good

“I first experienced migraines 15 years ago. At the time, they came and went without me doing anything about it. I suffered with headaches over the years but it was after the birth of my daughter, that they came back with a vengeance. Suddenly, they became so severe, and I would get a migraine about three times a week.

It was terrible. I have two young children and I found myself just struggling to get through the day. I was constantly waiting on my husband to return home from work so I could go to bed.

At my first appointment at Apex Headache Clinic, after my consultation and assessment, my specialist physiotherapist diagnosed my headaches as stemming from my neck. After each appointment, I began to notice a reduction in the frequency of my migraines. I am delighted to say that I have been migraine-free for months now.” – Vicki Neill.
