We may have the cure for your headaches, migraines, vertigo or tinnitus

This month, Apex Headache Clinic founder and Spinal & Headache Physiotherapy Specialist, Rebecca Nelson, discusses how Apex Headache Clinic, the first drug-free headache and migraine clinic in Ireland, has a very high success rate in treating and clearing headaches, migraines, vertigo and tinnitus.

Headaches or migraines ruining your life?

At Apex Headache Clinic, we regularly witness the devastating effects that headaches and migraines have on people’s lives. Many of our patients come to the clinic, after having tried numerous avenues of treatment, desperate to find a cure.

Many people don’t realise that headaches or migraines are often triggered from damage or stiffness of the upper neck region of the spine, even if the person has no neck pain. Contributing factors such as poor posture or hours spent hunched over desks and computers can lead to persistent headaches and migraines, as can repeated heavy lifting, a previous fall or an accident.

At Apex Headache Clinic we understand your pain. We know, from decades of treating headaches and migraines, that our specialist headache physiotherapy regime called The Nelson Headache Approach™ can be the cure that you’re looking for, in the vast majority of cases. Our ethos is that the cure for pain isn’t painkillers and getting to the source of the problem is much more effective.

Feeling frustrated by vertigo or tinnitus?

At Apex Headache Clinic, we also have extensive experience in treating vertigo or dizziness, with patients travelling from all over the UK and Ireland to avail of our specialist treatment. This common health complaint has devastating symptoms such as poor balance when walking, light headedness or a feeling of being removed from the world. Sometimes the symptoms are so severe that the person is confined to their home.

Dizziness originating from the upper neck region of the spine is called cervical vertigo and is hugely overlooked as a source of vertigo. In most cases, the person has no neck pain at all, only dizziness. It originates from stiffness or damage of the upper two neck joints of the spine.

Your initial consultation at Apex Headache Clinic will involve one of our specialist physiotherapists assessing your neck to establish if it is involved in causing your vertigo and to differentiate it from vertigo from the inner ear (vestibular vertigo). A treatment plan can then be started to clear it. One of the features of vertigo from the neck, is that it doesn’t respond to drugs given for inner ear vertigo. With our specialist treatment regime, patients usually start to feel relief within just a few sessions.

Is tinnitus getting you down?

This ringing, hissing, whistling, buzzing or clicking sound that can be intermittent, or constant can be extremely bothersome, intrusive, and, in some cases, a life-ruining condition for sufferers.

Tinnitus can be triggered from two main sources; damage to the hearing system, or from injury or stiffness of the upper neck joints, even when there may be no neck pain. The good news is that tinnitus, which is triggered from the neck, in most cases, can be treated and cleared at Apex Headache Clinic.

 Get to the source of the problem

As with all niggles, aches and pains, we recommend that you get to the root cause of your symptoms as soon as possible. Once diagnosed, Apex Headache Clinic’s specialist manual physiotherapy treatment regimes, developed by Rebecca Nelson, Spinal & Headache Physiotherapy Specialist, can clear or ease all of these conditions, restoring the quality of your life again.
