Headaches and Migraines
Current research shows that people suffering recurring headaches and migraines all have something in common and that is a sensitised part of the brainstem called the trigemino-cervical nucleus (TCN). It is believed that dysfunction in the upper three segments of the cervical spine is a major reason for this sensitisation. Ground breaking research by Dean Watson from the Watson Headache Institute has demonstrated that treatment techniques now known as "The Watson Headache Approach" are extremely effective in correcting the dysfunction in the upper cervical spine. His research demonstrated that the Watson Headache Approach is able to de- sensitise the sensitised brainstem. By using the Watson Headache Approach we are now able to treat the underlying cause of headaches and migraines. Joshua Lynam learnt "The Watson Headache Approach" from Dean Watson himself in 2013 and since then has been using the gentle and extremely effective treatment technique to help resolve headaches and migraines in patients from North Lakes and the surrounding areas.
Over 80% of Australians will suffer from back pain at some stage in their lives. There are many reasons for back pain including injuries to your lumbar spine discs and spinal facet joints, arthritis, muscle strain, ligament strain, pinched or irritated nerves, osteoporosis, muscle imbalances etc. Joshua Lynam is able to assess your back pain and decide which treatment techniques are going to be the most effective in easing your symptoms and improving your function. He will give you advice on how to manage your condition and exercises to improve your core stability to help prevent a recurrence of the problem in the future. Joshua is also able to use Real Time Ultrasound Scanning to assess how well you use the deep spinal stabilising muscles such as your Transversus Abdominus Multifidus and Pelvic Floor. He can also teach you how to activate these important muscles better. This has been shown in research to significantly reduce the chances of back pain in the future.
Dry Needling Dry needling is the use of fine steralised needles to help decrease pain, improve movement and help restore tissue health. It is different from acupuncture in that it is used more directly on the effected tissue, commonly around areas of tightness in muscles and joints. Joshua Lynam has undergone further training in Dry Needling and is able to use this effective treatment modality to improve the outcome of patients with various musculoskeletal injuries.
