Migraine and Headaches
Can we help with your headache?
At our Avenue Health practices in Worcester Park, Cheam and Selsdon, Surrey, we have great success in treating various types of headaches, including tension headaches, migraines, sinus pain and spinal headaches. Our treatment does not involve taking painkillers or drugs but relies on resolving the underlying problem causing the headache.
How our treatment works
People often suffer from headaches when they are stressed, over-worked or tired. When this happens your body develops tight muscles and restricted joints that can lead to your symptoms. In most cases, people are not even aware of this underlying problem as the pain from a headache masks pain in other areas of the body. At Avenue Health we give all our patients a full assessment to identify the areas of the body that are leading to a headache. We then treat these areas by relaxing the muscles and mobilising any restricted joints with gentle massage and articulation. We also give advice on improving posture at work and home to prevent the symptoms from reoccurring in the future. For most headaches, a short course of 3-4 treatments is all that is required to permanently resolve the issue.
