Headaches can be caused by a number of reasons, from medical problems to mechanical problems of the neck, whiplash, poor posture to name but a few.
At your first appointment your Physiotherapist will carry out a detailed examination which includes asking you many questions about your headaches and a physical examination of your spine and muscles.
If there is any doubt that this is not a mechanical headache and it is something medical we will refer you straight to your doctor. If you have a severe headache and your pain is constant and unchanging or you have had a physical blow to the head it is advisable to visit your doctor first, he will then refer you to us after medical screening.
Headache treatments: there are many options and these will be discussed with you to consider your preferences and the efficacy of each mode of treatment. These include Acupuncture, Massage, Mobilisation, Postural Correction, Manipulation, Trigger Points, and Exercises
