Headache and Migraine Article in Frontline

June 27, 2009 by dean · Leave a Comment 

In the recent ‘Frontline’ journal (which is the official journal of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists in the UK) an article was published which discussed my approach and also the clinical trial being conducted by Dr Ian Davidson at the University of Manchester. The trial is investigating the effectiveness of my approach in migraine sufferers.

One of the participants of the trial, Sonja Lord, reported dramatic results describing “I feel like I’ve had a spring clean in my head. Colours are really vibrant.” Ms Lord had had years of medication and dietary advice without success. This is a story I hear all too often – if other approaches have failed and your neck has not been examined for relevant disorders (unlike Sonja’s), then your painful journey may continue when it need not.
