Say goodbye to your headaches and migraines for good

Apex Headache Clinic is the first drug-free headache and migraine clinic in Northern Ireland, offering a unique physiotherapy treatment regime called The Nelson Headache Approach™ which isn’t available in any other clinic. This month, Apex Headache Clinic Founder and Spinal & Headache Physiotherapy Specialist, Rebecca Nelson, discusses why the cure for headaches isn’t painkillers and how the clinic’s team of Headache Physiotherapy Specialists have a high success rate in clearing headaches and migraines.

Headaches ruin lives

Here at Apex Headache Clinic, we witness on a daily basis the devastating impact that headaches can have. 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. Tension and stress are often blamed as the cause of these headaches, which sees many reaching for painkillers with little or no relief. What many people are unaware of is that there is often a physical cause for their headaches, which actually stems from their neck, even if there is no neck pain involved. The great news is that this can be successfully treated and cleared in the vast majority of cases, with no need for medication. Headaches and migraines are often the result of poor posture, hours spent hunched over desks and computers, repeated heavy lifting or a previous accident or injury.

The cure for pain isn’t painkillers

Apex Headache Clinic, Belfast has been treating and clearing 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 own 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. To be cleared of pain was life changing for me and Apex Headache Clinic was founded with the aim of helping others. Our specialist treatment which I devised, called The Nelson Headache Approach™, is offered in no other clinic. We are very proud of our high success rate, which sees patients travel from all over the UK and Ireland to avail of it.

Clearing patients’ pain for good

37-year-old ICT specialist, Vicki Neill from Ballywalter said: “I can remember first experiencing 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 three years ago, 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. At my first appointment, after my consultation and assessment, Nicola diagnosed my headaches as stemming from my neck. After each appointment, I began to notice a reduction in the frequency of my migraines. I also listened to Nicola’s advice to try and stop loading my neck. This, coupled with her treatment has led to a massive improvement. I am pleased to say that I have been migraine-free for months now.”
