CLINICAL TRIALS NOW OPEN FOR NEW MIGRAINE THERAPY
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, which has been shown by neuro scientists to stop the pain of migraine.
When the therapy is applied during the onset of a migraine, the migraine can be stopped dead in its tracks!
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.
We and our patients were shocked, as migraine after migraine, we were able to give relief and switch off the migraine pain.
So how does it work?
It’s really clever research that addresses the main the cause of migraines, which is over activation of the trigeminal nerve.
” I was involved in the pre-clinical trial at Spine and Health and used to get really bad migraines twice per month, the treatment completely turned of my migraines every time, I just couldn’t believe it ” Joanne Tse
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.
We are now running a NSW clinical Trial on the new breakthrough therapy.
To be eligible you need to:
- suffer from Migraines
- get at least 2 migraines per month.
