Neck pain and headache

Easing your daily stress and pain
Neck pain, headache and migraine are commonly treated by physiotherapists. Some 50-80% of people experience neck pain at some point in their lives.
Headaches can be caused by strain, stress and illness and symptoms often present from muscle tightness or joint dysfunction particularly from the upper neck. There are 3 main types of headaches – tension headache, cervicogenic headache and migraine and accurate diagnosis is essential to guide the best treatment option.
Our physiotherapists will assess the cause of your neck pain or headache and then work with you to agree a treatment plan and exercise program. You may need to develop your strength, flexibility and control using stability exercises and stretches.

Treatment for neck pain and headache may include:

  • joint mobilisations
  • soft tissue massage
  • EMG muscle biofeedback
  • pressure biofeedback
  • dry needling
  • heat therapy
  • ultrasound
  • posture correction exercises
Your physiotherapist will also design an exercise program that best suits you because everyone is different. Exercises focus on you controlling your muscles and posture to keep everything balanced so you have no pain.
