Make 2020 the year you say goodbye to headaches & migraines for good

A new year and a new decade has arrived! If you suffer from headaches or migraines, make it your resolution to ensure 2020 becomes headache free. Here, Apex Headache Clinic Founder and Spinal & Headache Physiotherapy Specialist Rebecca Nelson, shares her expert advice on how to say goodbye to headaches and migraines for good.

January is a particularly busy month for all our Headache and Migraine Physiotherapy Specialists. Whether it’s the stress of December’s credit card bill arriving, or the headache associated with returning to work, the reality for many people is that long term headaches and migraines are much worse than the lingering effects of the so-called January blues.

Headaches and migraines ruin lives

At Apex Headache Clinic, Belfast, we witness on a daily basis how headaches and migraines ruin people’s lives. As a former migraine and vertigo sufferer myself, I fully understand how awful these can be. A staggering 10 million people in the UK alone suffer daily or regular headaches. But the good news is that help is at hand at Apex Headache Clinic. We have 20 years of experience of clearing patients’ headaches and migraines, even in many cases where all other treatments have failed. Patients travel from all over the UK, Ireland and further afield to avail of my unique regime of headache treatment, called The Nelson Headache Approach™, which isn’t available at any other clinics.

The cure for pain isn’t painkillers

Here, at Apex Headache Clinic, we take a very firm stance when it comes to pain. Our clear message is that the cure for pain isn’t painkillers, and rather, pain should be tackled at its source in order to clear it in the longer term. Getting to the cause of the actual problem will greatly reduce the need for pain medication, which only ever masks the pain, and often brings with it side effects.

The Nelson Headache Approach™ is a specialist regime of manual physiotherapy techniques applied mainly to the upper neck region of the spine and it has been helping headache and migraine sufferers of all ages, including children and teenagers, business people, working mums and the elderly for 20 years. We have a very high success rate in curing persistent, long-standing headaches and migraines as well as those with a shorter history.

Clearing patients’ headaches for good

Ruth Graham from Antrim said: “The first time I ever had a migraine I was 14 years ago. The pain was so bad that it woke me up in the middle of the night and I went straight to hospital. Since then, migraines had always been a part of my life and I had done everything possible to try to clear them, including numerous GP appointments, MRIs, CT scans, blood tests and I even had a lumbar puncture. I had been on every painkiller known, which had done very little to ease the pain.

When my physio at Apex Headache Clinic diagnosed my migraines as stemming from my neck, it was such a relief. After only a couple of weeks, I started to feel better and gradually, over the next few months, the frequency of my migraines lessened. Now, like everyone, I still get the odd headache but to go from having constant migraines, to a headache once a month is a massive difference.”
