Headaches

Headaches are very common, it is estimated that at any one time 15% of Australians are taking some form of pain relieving medication for a headache.

There are many different causes of headache, for example:

  • Stress
  • Muscle Tension – neck, shoulders or back are most common​

  • Dental or jaw problems

  • Infections

  • Diet

  • Eye Problems

  • Medications

  • Poor posture

  • Dehydration

  • Exposure to Noise

  • Neck or Spine Injury

  • High Blood Pressure

As Physiotherapists, our treatment focus will be on the muscular and skeletal causes which make up a significant proportion of all headaches. We can treat these symptoms using a variety of techniques which include:

  • Dry Needling

  • Muscle Release

  • Taping

  • Stretches / Exercise Prescription

  • Postural Correction

  • Cupping

  • Fascial Mobility

In our assessment process if we notice a likely causal factor that is outside our treatment scope we will refer to the appropriate medical professional.
