Headaches and migraines can be debilitating conditions that can affect an individual’s daily activities. However, physiotherapy can be an effective treatment option.

One common type of headache that physiotherapy can help with is tension headaches. These headaches are often caused by muscle tension in the neck and shoulders, which can be addressed through manual therapy techniques such as massage and joint mobilisation. Additionally, physiotherapists can provide exercises to improve posture and strengthen the muscles in the neck and shoulders, which can help prevent tension headaches from occurring.

Another type of headache that physiotherapy can help with is cervicogenic headaches, which are caused by dysfunction in the cervical spine. Physiotherapists can use techniques such as spinal mobilisation to address the underlying mechanical dysfunction in the neck, which can alleviate symptoms of cervicogenic headaches.
