Headaches and Migraines

Not just a pain in the neck

Most people experience the occasional headache whether it’s from a stressful day or bad posture.

Other common causes include:

            • Vision problems
            • Sinus problems
            • Food intolerances
            • Previous injuries

Osteopaths try to relieve headaches and migraines by:

            • Improving mobility and posture
            • Reducing muscular tension, nerve compression and inflammation
            • Improving blood supply and drainage to and from the head and neck
            • Promoting better posture
            • Recommending exercise and stretching to help prevent a recurrence of symptoms

You should always seek advice if your headache is getting worse or if you experience a headache after a head trauma.

Please see your doctor if you experience a headache with:

  • Fever
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Bleeding or fluid draining from the nose or ears
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision or speech
  • Numbness, tingling or paralysis
