My Name is Karl and I am a Remedial therapist researching for a client of mine and was wondering if you folks could help me out?

My client has suffered migraine headaches for years and has a host of other related and unrelated conditions and symptoms: Fibromyalgia, whip lash, cystitus, etc.

In treating her collar bone for a fall that she had from a horse years ago darn near everything that I do by way of treatment in this area produces migraine effect. Any movement that targets this area seems to have migraine consequences. Has anyone got any ideas for movement induced migraine.

Please keep in mind that the area is being treated to provide greater qualiity of life outside of migraine pain. The damaged area makes lifting difficult as arm is weak and range of motion reduced. My client would love to be able to move freely without the fear of migraine response.

Please help as I would love to help her.

i am not sure what a movement therapist does, but i do massage. is it the same as 'muscle reintroduction" type retraining? have you talked with a chiropractor? sounds like there could be some nerve impingement in the cervical area. you may also find an osteopath(md) as they do spinal manipulations too if your client is afraid of dc's. good luck- it's cool that you are researching for your client.

there is a chiro- dr dave and laural an md that frequent this site. maybe address a thread to them as they are both very knowledgeable.

best to you

I can related to this.  If I do any type of excessive overhead reaching, sleep wrong, use improper posture while typing, etc., I can count on a migraine within two-three days.  I get treatment from a chiropractor who has helped me a lot.  Lately, I've been getting them more, which I am blaming on pre-menopause, however the intensity and ability to get rid of my headaches has greatly improved.
