There are a wide range of headaches that people can suffer from; tension headaches, cluster headaches postural tension headaches, headaches because of concussion injuries and migraines; all of them can be very debilitating. The joints and muscles at the base of the skull and upper cervical spine joints are the most likely cause of headaches. Our physiotherapists have the specific skills to treat these structures with manual therapy but also to prescribe you with posture correction exercise and strengthening of the local neck stabilizer muscles.

At Spinal Synergy Physiotherapy we offer headache specific treatment, this firstly involves a thorough examination to determine the type of headache and what treatment is most likely to benefit in easing the headaches. Treatment can include a combination of manual therapy techniques, Acupuncture & Dry needling, stretches, and posture correcting advice.

Since the neck is integrated with the thoracic spine (upper back) this region needs to be evaluated and may require some treatment as well. As with any spine condition it is important to take an integrated approach to spine function.

Headaches can also be caused by issues with the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) or related to vertigo & dizziness and our therapists can also help treat these conditions.
