DO YOU HAVE HEADACHE OR MIGRAINE?

Highly specialised therapists providing lasting relief from headaches and migraines using the latest scientific evidence to guide our treatment protocols.

Migraines and Headaches are poorly understood and very confusing for patients when they experience debilitating episode. Our therapists are at hand to explain this issue in a simple manner.

OVERVIEW/CAUSE OF PROBLEM

  • When suffering from headaches or migraines patients will just rely on medication to find relief. Many people do not realise that there are other treatment options available with long lasting results without the use of drugs.

  • Over 80% of migraine suffers have an issue with their upper cervical spine.

  • Previously migraines and headaches were poorly understood, today we know that migraine and headaches are as a result of a sensitized nervous = system and hypersensitivity to an area known as the brainstem region.

  • In normal people the brainstem requires a lot of stimulus to produce a headache but with people who suffer from migraines and headache the stimulus require is a lot less. Think of it like this, if you bump your arm, it is sensitive for a few days then it resolves. The sensitive part of your arm is like your brain stem, it has become very sensitive to pain touch and pressure.

  • “I’ve tried everything but nothing has given me relief.” We hear this quote a lot in our clinic.

    Many people just use medication to manage their migraines when in fact the root cause of the migraine can be coming from the upper cervical spine. Your brain stem is in this region and if the upper cervical spine is not moving correctly it will cause the brain stem to be come more sensitive.

OVERVIEW OF TREATMENT

  • Upper cervical mobilisation to desensitise your brain stem.

  • Neck and shoulder strengthening.

  • Cervical and upper back mobility.

  • Education on self-massage and how to relief pain during acute episodes.

  • Relaxation and breathing control with correct use of diaphragm.

  • Diarmuid is our clinical specialist in headache and has been trained by world renowned researcher Dean Watson from ‘Watson Headache Clinic’ in Sydney. Dean has designed a specific program to identify the upper cervical issues that can be contributing to your headache and migraine.

  • Unlimited treatment programs to reduce your cost of treatment and guarantee success.

Thanks so much, Sarah. I struggled with a recurring ankle injury and she helped me strengthen my ankle by finding the underlying causes so that I can strengthen my legs and have better mobility with less chance of injury. Highly recommended.

I visited Diarmuid after almost a year of going to another Physio, trying to resolve a nasty shoulder injury following an RTA. Pretty quickly Diarmuid diagnosed what the issue was and began working to remedy it. When a suggested treatment wasn't working, he was not afraid to stop, step back and start again from a new perspective. He is very honest, very straight talking and very good. If you are serious about your Sport or just want to keep your body ticking over, I could not recommend Diarmuid highly enough.

I visited Sarah unable to move due to acute back pain. Within 2 sessions she had me back moving freely and pain free. Sarah then worked to identify the underlying weakness, developing a custom rehabilitation plan to get me back mobile and strong. I can't recommend Sarah enough, and she will doubt be my go-to physio going forward.

Diarmuid successfully diagnosed an injury I had for about 4 years, and had seen a few different physios. One of whom is very well known. He has a very organised and clear thinking approach and you could see him working through the different possibilities. I sent my brother in law to him with another long term issue... same result. Very impressed!

If you are looking for a good physiotherapist I highly recommend Resync Physiotherapy.Few days ago I woke up with stiff, blocked, severely painful, inflamed and sore elbow. I could not bend my hand at all and any attempt to do so brought tears to my eyes. I booked an appointment online with Diarmuid for the same day. He told me they never had a case like mine in their practice before. Even though, Diarmuid quickly determined what was wrong and advised what to do to get my elbow fixed. Thanks to Diarmaid my hand got back to normal in few days, I avoided GP visit and what was most important to me I didn’t have to take anti inflammatory meds which makes me seriously ill. The booking system is also simple and straightforward. I will definitely chose Resync Physiotherapy again in the future.

Would definitely recommend Resync. I went to Sarah after I had fractured my elbow and couldn't straighten my arm. I did the 6 week program and have full functionality back! The team were really friendly too.

This place is great, went in a with a " working from home " back & hip issue and ended up going with the 3 week program with Conor. I would really advise the programs as it gives time to root out any other issues.. Conor not only solved my initial problem, but other ones that cropped up like shoulder pain etc.. it is the first time a physio program has actually worked for me, and I know what to do to avoid any pain in the future too.. highly recommend, thanks Conor!!

I can’t recommend Re Sync Physiotherapy enough, I went to Diarmuid with a Shoulder injury last year after being to so many physio’s & attended St.Vincent’s pain clinic for three years with no success But he had my shoulder sorted in a few sessions... This time I had an elbow injury so I signed up for a course, it took longer than we thought but Diarmuid did not give up until I was pain free at no extra cost , I came away with lots of techniques to help me stay pain-free

Conor sorted me out with a 3 week strength and conditioning program for my hamstring during the season. Very professional and friendly!

I would highly recommend Resync Physiotherapy. I did a course of treatment with Diarmuid for a shoulder issue, but came away with advice on training techniques for completely unrelated areas which will continue to improve my strength, mobility and injury prevention after the treatment completed. This holistic approach makes Resync stand out over other physiotherapy clinics I have attended.

Couldn't recommend Conor & Diarmuid more highly, having being recommend by a friend myself I've since told 2 other friends to go there.From the initial consultation where Diarmuid not only found my limits but made me push past them to prove my body was only protecting itself after I tore my MCL, LCL and meniscus cartilage, I realised I was in the right place.Rather than the usual routine of just fixing the problem facing him. Conor went through a full programme to get my knee back to being stronger than it was before, once more pushing me out of the comfort zone and forcing my muscles to get back to work properly again. Through out the 12 week programme I had some other minor movement issues addressed that I had being unknowingly compensating for over the years. All leading to me getting back to playing GAA sooner then I thought was possibly when I first got injured. Having a rehab plan tailored to my sport and position instead of just a standard knee programme definitely added to the reduce recovery time.If your expecting to be wrapped up in bubble wrap and told everything will be fine without putting in the rehab required then maybe look somewhere else, but if you want to get injuries fixed properly while being told honestly what is going on then Resync in the right place to go.

Very much recommend Resync Physio. I went in with a repetitive strain injury in my wrist from incorrect home office setup and a sedentary lifestyle. Over the 6 week course we worked on the initial injury and then onto strength training for my whole body which I just can't believe I was capable of. The careful bespoke approach for me specifically to start weight lifting has given me strength in my legs/core and whole body that I never thought I could achieve. Initial injury is gone and overall feeling stronger and most importantly healthier. Looking forward to my follow up contact with Diarmud and the team as I continue my fitness journey.

I have just completed several sessions with Sarah for a back problem. Sarah is excellent and really easy to talk to. She looks at the problem from a hollistic perspective taking all lifestyle factors into consideration. I would strongly recommend Sarah and ReSync to anyone looking for physio support. The booking system is very easy and user friendly and being able to book online makes it very efficient. They also have great opening hours making the service very accessible. 100% satisfied.

As a physio myself Sarah is my go to physio for any aches and pains. Sarah treated me for a hip and stomach injury. She resolved the pain within two sessions and put a long term plan in place for me. Sarah is amazing and really knowledgable she is a credit to the profession and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Came in with a knee injury and Sarah identified the related injuries and root cause. From there on I signed up for the six week treatment plan and I cannot recommend it enough!The flexibility with the plans are great specially if you have a busy schedule.The treatment was also very effective. Sarah made sure to understand the goals and outcomes I was hoping for an worked toward that. I'm back on the road and running again and the knee's never felt better!

I can't recommend this place enough. I had an intermittent back issue that had defeated a few other physios I had consulted over the years but Diarmuid sorted me out in two visits. He was modest and said it was a simple fix but the magic was in the diagnosis. The clinic is well run, sparkling clean and feels very safe

I have seen both Conor and Sarah at Resync Physio. They both did a lot to really understand the root of the issues I was having and then worked on strengthening those areas which I didn't realise were weak. They were both very consistent in their approach which I liked and I felt as though I was getting a lot of time in each session. Definitely worth booking an appointment if you have a niggle!

Would really recommend Diarmuid. Suffered knee issues after sports injury and surgery few years ago. He was brilliant, knew straight away what was wrong and the rehab plan was great. Hard work with some laughs along the way.Diarmuid always kept in touch and sent videos of exercises to make sure I done them correctly at home. Back to gym, knee is better than before the injury.

Conor did great work on my back! Knowledgeable physio, who was able to quickly identify chronic issues that had built up as a result of office work. Felt much better after a few sessions!

I can’t recommend ReSync physio enough. I came to Diarmuid with a pain in my back I’ve had for five years, along with various other small niggles. He took a full body approach to tackling my issues and over the course of a 6 week programme he showed me the steps to correct my problems and be pain free. I felt Diarmuid and his team were invested in getting me back to normal, not only in our face to face sessions but also checking in on how I was getting on in the days between our sessions. 2 months after finishing the programme my back still feels great and know I can correct any little flare-ups using the techniques taught to me by both Diarmuid and Conor. Thanks you both so much for all your help!

I cannot recommend resync physiotherapy clinic enough. I went to Diarmuid with an ankle injury which has bothered me for years and has stopped me running for prolonged periods of time. Diarmuid was the first physio to not only fix the injury but he also kept me training during the process. Diarmuid uses innovative techniques to establish the cause of the injury. He is excellent at helping you understand how you can prevent the injury reoccurring and giving you programs to do so. There is also a lovely vibe in the clinic 😊

Great experience. Attended with knee injury and did a 6 session programme as knew I had poor running technique. Conor worked on my technique and explained in great detail the cause of injury as well as providing an excersise program to correct posture.

I invested in a 6 week program with Diarmuid at Resync Physiotherapy to see if anything could be done with a niggling hip/ lower back issue. I'm delighted with the results. Diarmuid looks for the root cause and designs exercises that focus on building strength and flexibility in weak areas.. The results are sustainable. I definitely notice the improvement every day and in particular when I play golf . I highly recommend.

After an impact knee injury, Diarmuid helped me go from barely being able to walk down stairs to returning to my sport in a few months. He was challenging and motivational, and gave me sports-specific exercises for rock climbing.The team at ReSync were very communicative and kept in contact on WhatsApp to guide me. I found the online booking system quick and easy to rearrange appointments, I wish more companies and services were this modern! Very professional, thanks!

I attended resync physiotherapy for knee and back pain. It is a very welcoming clinic and both Diarmuid and Conor were extremely professional and thorough. I particularly liked the holistic approach they take in placing emphasis on both the emotional and physical side of injury. I would definitely recommend the resync team.
Marie D.

I can't recommend Resync Physiotherapy highly enough. I have an old back injury sustained nearly 20 years ago. This means I am always in pain but it's mostly just uncomfortable with periodic flare ups that make movement extremely painful. I have historically treated this with a trip to the doctor and some anti-inflammatories after a flare up. After 2 bad ones in the space of 2 months I decided to try something different and booked in with Resync. The approach was very different to what I expected with Conor focusing on building strength in my legs rather than my back, and getting me to alter how I walk. While this seemed counter-intuitive to me, the results have been spectacular. I will always have to remain vigilant about my back, my injury can't be 'healed', however I am now pain free 90% of the time and the rest of the time stretching will usually resolve it. I can't overstate how much of a game changer this has been for me, thanks so much Conor.

I have attended Stepaside Physiotherapy over the last couple of months in one of their unlimited treatment program's. I had long term hip and knee problems and had tried many other forms of treatments over the years with little or no success.Both Diarmuid and Conor worked tirelessly with me treating me continually until I saw results. I’m now back exercising and sleeping pain free. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.Thankyou!

You should book yourself even if you have no injury!I came in with an on-going shoulder pain, worsening for months with its peak during the lockdown – approaching a chronic condition caused by shoulder bursitis, bicep tendonitis, along with an underlying shoulder weakness.After the initial assessment, I opted for the 6 week unlimited treatment program – which consisted of comprehensive analysis and regular movement assessments, targeted physio treatments to provide immediate improvement in pain, tailored video exercise plan - easy to adapt & follow, along with monitoring and regular adjustments to the plan as my recovery progressed and my ability increased. Alongside the treatment the goal was not only to leave me pain free but also to become more knowledgeable on the pain’s root causes, their correction, as well as future prevention.Injury or no injury, pain or no pain - anyone booking will get great value when choosing the full assessment, a tailored plan to achieve goals as well as to educate and strengthen the body – something we should all aim for.

I was suffering with knee pain for a few weeks while running. Diarmuid diagnosed my problem coming from a weakness in my hips. I completed a 6 week unlimited treatment program with Diarmuid and am now back running stronger and faster than before. Great cost effective program that guarantees to fix your injury. Would recommend.
