Headache - one of the commonest ailment in modern society

Headaches are often caused by problems in the top part of the neck at the base of the skull. It comes as a surprise to many sufferers that their neck may be the cause of their problems.

One of the most common causes of headaches is due to excessive tension in the muscles which move the neck and shoulders causing stiffness in the spinal joints of the neck.

Tension in the muscles which move the jaw can also produce headaches especially if you grind your teeth at night.


Treatment for effective headache relief

Physiotherapy can provide effective treatment for headache by targetting the scalp muscles as well as muscles in the neck and shoulder. It can help by identifying and correcting aggravating postures, promoting relaxation, restoring mobility of the joints in the neck and soft tissues at fault and use of acupuncture for pain relief.
