In medical literature up to 300 different types of headache have been identified. Many authorities now accept that there are three main contributing factors to headaches and migraines:

  • Structures in the head
  • Structures in the neck (cervicogenic)
  • Chemical factors (serotonin)

As Physiotherapists we are experts in assessing and treating necks. If you are experiencing headaches and your GP has ruled out any neurological cause a Physiotherapy assessment is the next logical step.

We can assess your neck to establish whether it is the cause of your head pains and if it is, treat it with a combination of manual techniques, exercises and postural changes.
