Advertising headaches and migraines
I don’t watch a lot of TV but I did happen to spot this advert for Nurofen.
Now I’m pretty sure that a couple of nurofen isn’t going to make a huge difference if you have a migraine but what this advert does show is how the physical structures in the head and neck affect headaches.
Tension headaches and migraines are both related to physical issues – tension in the muscles in the neck can be part of the pressure on the nerves which results in migraines.
Undoing this tension (along with a thorough clinical assessment and thermal imaging to determine the nerves causing the issues) can reduce the severity and frequency of headaches. I’d like to think it’s at least a little more effective than a nurofen!
