Having recently seen clients with extreme migraines, I wanted to include some tips for reducing the number and intensity of migraine occurances.
Bad posture can contribute towards Migraines as well as back pain. Other triggers includes neck or shoulder tension, low blood sugar, irregular meals, dehydration, caffeine, chocolate, cheese, bright lights, flickering screens, jaw clenching, eye strain, stress and anxiety.
It is therefore important to address these factors, Keeping a diary of symptoms can help to identify any particular personal triggers, talk to your Doctor for the latest medication recommendation, check with your dentist that you aren’t exhibiting jaw clenching symptoms, try a specialised ergonomic chair and try a mindfulness app to help reduce stress. For postural tips, see
NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) also recommend acupuncture as a treatment for migraines and for patients to consider a course of up to 10 sessions of acupuncture over 5-8 weeks for the treatment of chronic tension-type headache.
