A thorough assessment by your physiotherapist will help guide management by identifying the irritated structure and cause of your headaches.
Treatment often includes:
- Joint mobilisation to improve the movement of the neck, reducing the referral into the head
- Muscle release through massage, dry needling, stretching to reduce tension and joint compression
- Taping to help offload the irritated structure or assist with posture
Long term management and prevention includes postural management and strengthening.
It is important that your physiotherapist addresses all the aspects that may affect your health and well being to holistically manage your headache. At Sportsfit we take great care in understanding the full picture and getting to understand you.
