Assessment, diagnosis and treatment of headaches arising from musculoskeletal origins, including cervicogenic headaches.
If your headache has been persisting for longer than 24 hours and can’t be attributed to dehydration, illness or anything medical, it is very often arising from the muscles and joints in your neck.
Physiotherapy has been proven to be a very effective treatment for these headaches and involves a combination of hands-on treatment, home exercises and education in self-management strategies.

Headaches best managed with physiotherapy:
Cervicogenic headaches; neck-related headaches
Whilst there are many different causes for headaches and many different types, there are two very common headaches that are manageable with physiotherapy. These are called cervicogenic headaches (which arise from the neck) and tension-type headaches (which arise from muscles around the neck). Both of these headaches are of musculoskeletal origin and can be treated effectively and safely by a physiotherapist.
The first step is clearing any suspicion of anything medical that could be contributing to your pain and referring you to a medical professional if this is the case. The next step is accurately identifying which structures in your neck are causing your headaches. Once this has been done, we will use a combination of hand on treatment techniques, stretches and exercises to reduce your head pain.
You’d be amazed at how effective treatment can be for these types of headaches!
