Neck pain

Headaches can severely affect your quality and enjoyment of life. They are many causes of headache but the most common type of headache is caused from problems to the structures of the neck. These include the cervical joints, muscles and nerve tissue. It can present in the back of the head and upper neck, temples, forehead, back of ears or eyes.

Headaches can be caused by poor posture, tension and stress, trauma such as whiplash, prolonged poor neck positioning such as in front of computers or arthritic joints in the neck. Our physiotherapists can accurately and skillfully assess the origin of your pain to determine if they feel it is likely to be coming from the neck or not. If they feel it is coming from the neck they will chose a variety of approaches that best suits your problem. These may include joint mobilisation techniques, massage and soft tissue releases, stretching and strengthening exercises. They will give you advice about the likely causes of your headaches and how to best manage them, as well as assist you how to prevent them from recurring in the future.

If not, they will liaise with your local doctor to determine other possible causes of your headaches if further investigations are indicated.
