Headaches and migraines are a real problem in today’s society. Close to 20% of our Australian population suffers a headache of some form.
Your headache may have been diagnosed as:
🤕 Tension Type – dull, aching, often two sides of the scalp
😩 Cervicogenic headache – implying it comes from the spine
😨 Migraine – can have ‘aura’ including vision changes, one-sided, throbbing and severe
😣 Chronic Daily Headache – a daily, all over, dull diffuse headache
No Headache should go un-diagnosed.
From the low grade ‘once-a-week’ headache to the severe ‘migraine-type’ headache or constant tension-type headache. 🧐
Find the cause!
Ever thought the neck was involved to be told ‘it’s not’, so no one has ever touched it?
Don’t put up with it a minute longer!
Essentially the research now suggests that the upper neck segments (C1-3) are involved in headaches approximately 90% of the time. Even migraines – which was believed for a long long time to be related to blood flow to the head and neck. Yes, there’s hope with those living with migraines yet!
Our Osteopaths are trained to:
✅ Take a detailed headache and neck history
