Headaches

Headaches can be quite commonplace in the physiotherapy environment

and, as with other conditions, can be due to a number of factors.

The most common type of headache we see in clinic is cervicogenic, which means the pain is coming from structures in the neck - such as joints, discs, ligaments, nerves etc. Cervicogenic headaches are especially common in a whiplash accident.

Providing any serious cause of the pain has been ruled out, headaches can respond quite well to physiotherapy treatments, which includes;

  • joint mobilisations

  • acupuncture

  • soft tissue massage

  • home exercises

Some of our patients (and staff!) have reported that acupuncture has proved useful in the management of their migraines as well.
