Osteopathic & Massage Treatments in Cairns for:
Headaches & Migraines
Headaches come in many shapes and forms.
There are primary headaches such as Tension headaches, Migraine headaches and Cluster headaches to name a few.
Headaches are quite often hard to pigeon hole as one specific type of headache, as quite often there can be combinations of causes which lead to atypical headaches.
This probably explains why there is no "one " treatment for all headaches.
Our practitioners recognize that headaches are often complicated in nature and therefore take a holistic approach towards their treatment
During pregnancy a great amount of change and development occurs to accommodate a growing foetus.

Osteopathic concepts emphasize the following principles:
The human person is a unit in which structure, function, mind, and spirit are mutually and reciprocally interdependent.
The body, through a complex system, tends to be self-regulatory and self-healing in the face of disease processes.
Adequate function of body systems depends upon the unimpeded circulatory mechanisms, nerve impulses, and neurotrophic influences. (In other words, structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.)
A rational treatment regimen is based on this philosophy and these principles.
