Understanding Migranes

Last nights speaker was John Wilson a physiotherapist specialising in the treatment of Migraines.

John explained that the real cause of migraines wasn’t caused by pain in the brain.

It is actually referred pain from pressure on the brain stem which is within the top two vertebrae in the neck.

A trained physiotherapist can help by applying pressure to the neck at the appropriate point.

If you are suffering from a Migraine it is sometimes possible to reduce the effects by pushing the chin horizontally backwards.
