Battling Headaches and Migraines? An Osteopathic Approach at Remedium Wellness in Worcestershire


Headaches and migraines can be debilitating, putting a serious damper on your day-to-day life. While medication can offer relief, many people seek a more holistic approach to manage these conditions. Enter Osteopathy, a form of manual therapy that might be the key to unlocking a life less plagued by head pain.

Osteopathy: A Hands-On Approach to Pain Relief

Osteopathy takes a comprehensive view of the body, focusing on how the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, muscles) influences overall health. Osteopaths use gentle manipulations, stretches, and massage techniques to improve mobility, relieve tension, and enhance blood flow. This holistic approach can be particularly beneficial for headaches and migraines that have a musculoskeletal origin.



Science Backs the Benefits

Research suggests that osteopathic treatment (often referred to as osteopathic manipulative treatment or OMT) can be effective in managing headaches and migraines. A review published in the journal The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association (JAOA) analyzed studies on OMT for headaches. The findings showed a reduction in pain intensity and frequency of headaches in patients who received OMT compared to controls [1].
