I have a headache!

There are 3 common causes of headaches – migraine, tension headaches and neck related or cervicogenic headaches.  Neck related headaches generally begin in the neck and then spread to a headache.  The headache is usually on one side only and is of a mild to moderate intensity.

Physiotherapy has been shown to be effective in controlling and reducing neck related headaches.  You should feel better within 4 to 5 treatment sessions and will also be provided with advice on workplace setup, a stretching and strengthening program and other education on controlling further aggravations of your pain.

If the pain is of a high intensity and unrelenting then it is best to see your doctor for an assessment.
