How to manage migraine.

A LEADING consultant neurologist will explain how migraines can be managed and treated at an education day in Cardiff.

Dr Trevor Pickersgill, who is based at the University Hospital of Wales, is among the speakers at the event organised by the charity Migraine Action.

Dr Rachael Talbot, who runs Chiropractic 4 Health in Cathays, Cardiff, will be discussing how chiropractics, including a technique called network spinal analysis, can help those with the condition.

The education day, at the Beacon Centre, St Mellons, on June 20, will provide information and practical advice to people in South Wales who are affected by migraine.

Lee Tomkins, director of Migraine Action, said: "Although it is a common condition, people can find it very isolating.

"Often they do not seek help, believing that their migraine will not be taken seriously, or wrongly believing that there is nothing that can be done to help.

"We hope this Migraine Action event will encourage people to stop people suffering in silence."

There is a charge of pounds 10 to attend the meeting, which starts at 9am, and refreshments and lunch are included.

Pre-booking is essential. For more information and to book your place, call Migraine Action on 0116 275 8317 or you can e-mail
