Do you suffer from regular headaches? Are you tired of starting or ending each day in pain? Or perhaps every time you try to do a particular activity your head hurts…again!

Headaches can be a frustrating and debilitating condition that can significantly impact your quality of life. They can range in severity from mild, annoying discomfort to 10/10 pain and regardless of the cause, headaches can be draining to deal with. Furthermore, finding relief, that isn’t just taking more pain medication, can be challenging. At our osteopathic clinic we have a team of highly skilled, expert osteopaths who frequently treat headache patients. We understand the many and varied types of headaches and take time to find the cause of your headaches so they can be dealt with effectively, once and for all!

If you're suffering from headaches, don't suffer in silence. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and take the first step towards finding relief and get back to doing the things you love, pain free.

At Enhance Osteopathy Heidelberg we work closely with our patients to understand their unique needs. We develop personalised treatment plans to address your specific, individual symptoms and concerns. This involves asking many questions about your headaches and your overall health so we can get to the heart of the complaint as it presents for you. Keeping track of where and when your head hurts, any headache triggers, and the quality of pain, throbbing or aching for example, will all assist us in helping you.

Headache diary:

If you get regular headaches, try keeping a headache diary. Keeping a headache diary can help identify triggers and ultimately help avoid them. A headache diary allows you to record important details about your headaches, such as symptoms and frequency. This diary will provide your osteopath with important information.

Many patients have never thought about the specifics of their pain in depth, they just know their head hurts, so here are a few things to focus on before you come for a treatment. Your osteopath will want to know where exactly the pain is in your head. What time of day the pain is worse? What type of pain is it, for example aching, throbbing, burning? What makes the pain better and what makes the pain worse? Do you get any nausea or visual changes with your headache?

All this information will assist your osteopath in diagnosing and treating your headaches more efficiently.
