Andrew first visited the Crows Nest Spine & Health Clinic in July of 2014 complaining of recent pain between his shoulder blades and chronic lower back pain both made worse by lifting.
After being treated with postural therapy by Dr Adrienne Leahy, Andrew rarely feels any discomfort or pain in his back anymore. He’s also noticed that his breathing and exercise has improved now that his posture is in a safe and healthy range.

Imagine knowing you are about to get a migraine which can last for days to have it switched off in only a few minutes….
Did you know that migraines are nerve pains? The nerve that causes migraines is called the trigeminal nerve, which is a nerve that supplies your face and structures in your head. This new migraine therapy works by calming down the activity of this trigeminal nerve, and therefore stops your migraines.
When the therapy is applied during the onset of a migraine, the migraine is stopped dead in its tracks and does not develop.
Some what sceptical? So were we!
But we read the research, and the chiropractors of Spine and Health decided to get trained in this breakthrough technique.
The results? We and our patients were shocked, as migraine after migraine, we were able to give relief and switch off the pain of migraine.
So how does it work?
It’s really clever research that addresses the major pain producing cause of migraines, which is over activation of the trigeminal nerve.
The neurology is somewhat complicated but by gently stimulating the nerve to the surface of your ear drum it calms down the over activation of the trigeminal nerve which is causing the migraine pain.
The ear drum nerve is stimulated by using gentle rhythmic air pressure (to the left or right ear or a combination of both, depending on the migraine presentation) to calm down the over active trigeminal nerve to switch of the migraine. The device to deliver this gentle rhythmic air pressure is called an otoscope, and has a special attachment (an insufflation bulb) for this unique therapy. It’s gentle, non-invasive and free from drugs or manipulation.
So if you or someone you care for suffers from migraines there is now a highly effective therapy for relief that requires no drugs, surgery, manipulation or home exercises.
The best way to know if you can get migraine relief and stop suffering from this often debilitating condition is to come to one of our centres and receive a diagnostic consultation. If you fit the treatment criteria then treatment and relief from migraines can begin.
