Tension Headache and Migrainies

If you suffer from tension headache or migraine there are two ways we may be able to help you. In some patients, headaches may be a symptom of TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder), which can arise if you grind or clench your teeth together during the night for instance.

The symptoms of TMJ can be relieved with a bite-raising appliance, a soft, removable appliance designed to be worn at night to stop your upper and lower teeth from touching. Bite raising appliances are very comfortable and are designed to fit perfectly over your teeth, so wearing one won’t affect your sleep. If you’d like to find out more please feel free to get in touch.

You may know that the wrinkle softening treatment, Botulinum toxin, is great at reversing the signs of ageing, but did you also know it can be used as a treatment for tension headache and migraine?

Several studies have shown that it is very effective, and as well as reducing the frequency of tension headache and migraine, it can also help treat associated symptoms such as vomiting. Treatment is quick and straightforward too, it takes just 15-20 minutes to gently inject Botulinum toxin into your forehead muscles using a very fine needle, relaxing the muscles and soothing away tension headaches and migraine for up to 5 months.
