Headache Management

Cervicogenic headaches respond very well to physiotherapy treatment. The aims of physiotherapy are to identify the relevant source(s) of the pain and treat them so that the Physiotherapist can alleviate the pain/symptoms. In chronic cases there is usually more than one source of the referred pain from the upper cervical spine (specifically multiple articular levels as well as muscular components).

Our Physiotherapists are also trained to identify any other relevant underlying causes or influencing factors such as posture, sleeping position, and repetitive movements so that they can prevent re-aggravating the cervicogenic source of the referred pain to the head.

Physiotherapy headache and migraine Treatment involves:

  • Direct treatment to the structures in the neck that have been identified as being sources of the referred pain (specifically passive mobilisation to any hypomobile or poorly aligned vertebrae or joints, massage and/or myofascial release of any tight muscles and connective tissue, and possibly acupuncture/dry needling)
  • Identifying and addressing any influencing factors to stop the problem re-occurring (posture correction or re-alignment, ergonomic assessment and advice, specific strengthening or stretching exercises to improve muscle balance and control
