This is a new service designed to help migraine sufferers ease and even eliminate the oftentimes debilitating symptoms associated with migraines.
Newly established by Consultant Osteopath, Mr Paul McQuade, this service has helped many migraine sufferers in Northern Ireland already. The majority of migraine sufferers report back on their second appointment following treatment, that they have had no migraines, even when they have been exposed to their migraine triggers. This is truly life changing for those who suffer.
This hands-on system of diagnosis and treatment is drug-free and non-invasive. It can be easily applied to children and older adults alike with minimum risk of injury.
Three appointments are booked. The second appointment follows four weeks after the first appointment and the third appointment follows six months after the second appointment. Appointments are scheduled on the hour. Appointments with the nurse are booked according to the service required.
Yes, absolutely. Children can develop migraines at any age, and we have seen complete resolution of migraines in children as young 11. We will require the child to be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
When you arrive for your consultation, we will review your medical history to ascertain any red-flags or contraindications to treatment. You may also have your blood pressure and temperature taken. Providing there are no complications to treatment, you will receive an assessment to determine the cause of your migraines. We will explain our findings and propose how we will administer treatment to help relieve your migraines.
Over many years of clinical observation, we have noted that those suffering from migraines have a predictable pattern of movement dysfunction. This pattern is quite consistent and so too is the treatment and patient reported positive outcomes.
We typically recommend three consultations. Your second appointment is one month after your first appointment and the third appointment follows six months after the second appointment. This is flexible and dependant on individual requirements. All consultations take place in our clinic in Antrim.
Please do. Having a full understanding of your health history is important in the decision-making process as to whether our treatment protocol will benefit you.
Although we have shown a high success rate to our treatment protocol, our approach will not benefit everyone. In our experience, there are different causes to migraines such as the dysfunction we identified as well as tumours or other brain/ neurological dysfunctions or deficits.
We are happy for you to bring one extra person to any of your appointments.
Consultation fees are £250. This fee is applicable to all patients. Receipts are issued should you have Private Medical Insurance or a Health Cash Plan. Consultation fees with our nurse, varies on the service.
