Patient: Woman 38 years
Complaint:Classic Migraine Headaches when stressed or angry. This patient had a minor scoliosis and was hypermobile. There were various areas of asymmetry which I noticed when I looked at her, the most obvious being her face.
The Migraines lasted for 24 hours, with a frequency of 1 per week. There was no link to her menstrual cycle.
Treatment: I treated this Lady using Cranio-Sacral Therapy. Two areas were problematic, the left sacroiliac joint and right temporal bone. It took 3 treatments over 2 weeks to correct these areas. The Lady was pain free for 3 months after this treatment.
Prognosis: The intensity and frequency of her Migraine Headaches is markedly reduced.
She returns for treatment 2 or 3 times a year – when she feels the need.
David Drysdale has worked as an Osteopath in the West End of Glasgow since 1996.
David combines a wide range of techniques when treating a patient, ranging from Osteopathic Manipulation, Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Nutrition and Exercise.
Treatments are tailored for the Patient. It is understood that some people simply do not like osteopathic manipulation, while others like Deep Tissue Massage, or benefit from Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
There are different ways of treating people who are in pain, and providing the treatment that works for you is very important.
Osteopathy is well known for treating Headaches, Neck & Back Pain, but many other conditions such as migraines, frozen shoulder and arthritis can all respond well to good Osteopathic treatment.
