Do you, or someone you know, suffer from Migraines?
Migraines can be debilitating and interfere with life in many ways – whether that be in home life, work life or social life.

Claire will present an evening information session including:

  • What is a migraine? What causes it?

  • What are the common migraine triggers?

  • How are migraines treated? What options are there for pain or symptom relief?

  • Which health professionals should be involved in migraine care? Should you be seeing a neurologist?

  • How can you manage your condition yourself? Self care strategies for pain management and migraine prevention and relief.


Claire is our clinic director and an Advanced Practice Pain Management Osteopath. She sees many patients managing migraine headaches and works closely with referring GPs and specialists to assist patients with chronic pain conditions such as migraines.

Claire works as a pain educator as well as an Osteopath, assisting patients to understand how migraines occur, their options for management and the measures that they can take to ease the suffering that is often associated with migraine headaches.

Claire understands that the best outcomes for patients suffering from migraines are achieved when they are educated and empowered to take an active role in their condition management, and aims to help patients understand their condition in simple and clear language.

Migraines – Cause and Treatment

The word “Migraine” is used fairly loosely when describing a severe headache, however there are differences between headache (which can be severe) and migraine.
The word “headache” is a description of pain in the head, which can be caused by many different things, usually innocuous. Headache does not indicate the cause of the pain and thus, is not a diagnosis in and of itself. Not all severe headaches are a migraine, and not all migraines cause severe headache!

Rib Sprains

Rib sprains, as mild as they may sound, can actually be quite painful and disconcerting, and usually present as a sharp, localised pain on one side of the spine that is worse with movement and can also sometimes aggravated by deep breathing, coughing or sneezing.
