There are many causes of headaches with many people suffering from one or two causes. Some of the most common causes include migraine, cervicogenic (neck) and tension-type headaches. Frequent cause of migraine or headache include whiplash, poor posture, joint or muscular dysfunction within the neck as well as stress and muscle tension. We quite often find that small issues with the neck can significantly influence your headache experiences, regardless as to whether or not your neck is sore. In clinic your physiotherapist will discuss with you the nature of your symptoms as well as physically assess your neck and postural muscles to ascertain the possible underlying causes for your pain. If appropriate, the following modalities may be used in treatment:
- Dry needling to reduce postural muscle tension
- Massage and heat
- Joint mobilisation
- Strengthening of weak muscles
- Neck proprioceptive training
