Have you got a headache?
Does you head feel like it’s pulsating? Have you got some neck and associated shoulder pain? Are you sensitive to light? Do you feel worst with movements of your head? Does your neck feel tender?
Did you know physiotherapy can help reduce these above symptoms and help minimise your headaches?
A physiotherapist can diagnose what type of headache that you may have.
There are multiple factors as to why people may get a headache.
A huge factor that can lead to headaches is poor posture. If you are seated with your neck constantly pointing forward the muscles at the back of your neck struggle. These muscles lack the endurance to maintain a forward head position, which therefore can lead to some headaches. A physiotherapist can show you how to work these muscles and build the strength and endurance in them.
By using manual therapy techniques, there are a few points on the neck vertebrae that a physiotherapists can work on. This can also help reduce your symptoms.
These are only a few of many ways physiotherapy can help with headaches. If you have any of the above symptoms, contact your local physiotherapists and see how they can help you.
