Welcome to OPHM

Osteopaths for Progress in Headaches and Migraines

OPHM-Ed Ltd (OPHM) is a special interest group within osteopathy.

At the core of OPHM is a group of experienced osteopaths working nationwide.

Each of us has a long-standing special interest in headaches which we would like to share with other osteopaths wishing to increase their knowledge and skills in headache management.



What we do

Excited by the challenge set out by the WHO in their pioneering and thought-provoking study, "Lifting the burden of headache", we aim to:

  • provide enjoyable online CPD
  • offer a substantial discount off access to all 2021 Migraine World Summit videos
  • run regular seminars and in time, accredited courses
  • run online case-sharing forums to support osteopaths with complex cases
  • keep colleagues up-to-date with the latest research
  • inspire and encourage further research
  • increase osteopaths’ confidence in headache management
  • help create a national practitioner list accessible to the public
  • communicate the benefits of osteopathy to potential patients
