Headaches & Migranes

Everyone hates a headache whether it’s mild or something far more debilitating.

The research tells us that approximately 80% of headache and migraine sufferers have a neck component to their problem.

More often than not the person isn’t aware of any neck pain, but this is where your Physiotherapist can skillfully assess the relevant joints in your neck, rule out any red flags and start helping you with your headache and neck dysfunction.

Physiotherapists treat headaches with:

  • Cervical joint mobilisations
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Postural correction and taping
  • Educating on triggers and preventative techniques
  • Advice on Workstation Set Up and ergonomics
  • Advice on pillows, addressing psychological stressors and reducing prolonged head forward or static postures
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Working on surrounding joints and soft tissues including the shoulders, upper back, jaw (TMJ).
