Migraine Awareness Month 2020

June is migraine awareness month.

Migraines are one of the most underdiagnosed misunderstood conditions currently. Our physio James was interviewed by Migraine Australia last week in conjunction with calmd.

What is a migraine?

Migraine is a long-term ongoing condition that can affect up to 1 in 5 Australians. A migraine is characterised by severe throbbing pain, usually localised to one side of the head. This can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, cold hands and aura (visual disturbances that might include numbness of the arms or legs). However, a migraine does not have to be accompanied by a headache.

Migraine Australia has a wealth of information about migraine that can be found here.

June 21 is International Migraine Solidarity Day. So join us in putting up a selfie wearing your shades using the hashtag #shadesformigraine and #mam2020

See the interview below to learn a little bit about how the calmd face mask (available online and in all PhysioLife locations) can help you not only with migraines, but also with other headaches and even relaxion.

If you suffer from migraine, physiotherapy may be able to help. Please feel free to contact James via email with any questions or book in online for an appointment.
