The treatment of headaches is not always associated with Physiotherapy but many headaches can be caused by conditions that can be effectively treated.
Poor Posture, previous injury, imbalanced muscles and joint stiffness in the neck and upper back can all cause headaches and all are very treatable with the correct Physiotherapy.
We can improve mobility in the joints that may be causing the problem, suggest exercises that will strengthen muscles and provide stretching programmes designed to maintain flexibility in the neck and upper back.
Whilst it may not be the first treatment that you think of for headaches Physiotherapy can help treat the causes rather than the symptom and we work with many GP’s and Consultants to treat patients that may have presented to them with chronic conditions that have failed to respond to other treatments.
If you, or anybody you know suffers from headaches then it might be worthwhile contacting Bevan Wilson for an assessment.
