Migraine and Headaches


NEW Breakthrough migraine therapy that stops migraine pain in minutes

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.

Somewhat sceptical? So where 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 of 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 debilitation 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.



Do you have some of the following symptoms? If so you could be suffering from migraines.

  1. Headaches lasting 4-72 hours (untreated or unsuccessfully treated)
  2. Headaches with at least 2 of these characteristics:
    1. Pain on one side
    2. Pulsating quality
    3. Moderate or sever pain intensity
    4. Aggravation by physical activity
  3. During headache (either/or):
    1. Nausea and/or vomiting
    2. Aversion to light or sound

Migraines are a multifactorial problem.

Research shows that migraine sufferers have a dysfunction in their brainstem, which controls areas of pain control, balance, and blood flow regulation. Triggers for migraine can include foods, hormonal changes, emotional stress, fatigue, tight neck muscles, and trigger points and joints that are not functioning properly.

Furthermore people who suffer from migraines tend to have a habituation problem. That is, the average person can walk in to a loud room and after a while will not notice the noise because the body adapts and blocks out excessive noise. Migraine sufferers do not have this response and so things like noise and stressful environments can cause  a migraine to be triggered.

The team at Spine and Health have found that the most effective way to reduce symptoms of headaches and migraines and also to reduce the likelihood of them being triggered is to restore normal posture.

As  we can reduce your amount of forward head carriage we  reduce the stress this extra weight places on the body and also ensure the communication pathways from the brain to each part of the body are open and flowing.

By working with you to restore your normal posture, and following healthy lifestyle choices, we can help to minimize your migraines and headaches and improve your overall health.
