Headaches And Neck Pain Physiotherapy

Neck Pain And Headaches Physiotherapy At Sydney Physio Clinic

Headaches can result due to a variety of reasons, some of musculosketelal causes and other headaches have non-musculoskeletal causes. For example potential causes of headaches may include stress, poor posture, accidents, whiplash, medications, dietary irregularities… CBD physio practitioners are trained in assessing relevant musculoskeletal structures that could be contributing to the root cause of your headaches providing effective headache and neck pain physiotherapy, where as taking painkillers for a headache is just a band aid approach and does nothing to prevent any repeat episodes if there is an underlying musculoskeletal contributor to your headaches. So although your headache may be relieved by taking painkillers persistent headaches should always be assessed and an attempt made to establish their origin.

Headaches A Common Condition Seen In CBD Physio Clinics

Headaches and migraines can be a debilitating condition and are one of the most common ailments in Australia effecting a high percentage of the population. With persistent headaches taking painkillers to relieve the headache is only a temporary strategy of headache management. You shouldn’t need to be consistently resorting to painkillers for your headaches, at Sydney Physio Clinic we take a detailed history and carefully assess for potential headache triggers to determine the cause of your headache. Addressing any musculoskeletal dysfunction in your neck, upper back and shoulders, see a CBD physio to help relieve any headache and migraine symptoms. Using further preventative measures including postural, sleeping and ergonomic advice as well as any necessary targeted exercises our goal is to keep you both headache and painkiller free.

Headaches Frequently Require A Multidiciplinary Approach

A CBD physio will frequently help individuals manage their headaches due to the strong contribution poor upper cervical posture whilst seated at work can have on triggering headaches. In my experience there is a strong correlation between poor ergonomic positioning in sedentary occupations such as your classic office worker and headaches. However remembering that headaches even musculoskeletal headaches may have multiple triggers including tired over worked eyes and grinding your teeth to name just a couple, making seeing a Sydney physiotherapist only one of the possible avenues of assessing and managing your headaches. Frequently patients complaining of and presenting for headaches physiotherapy with persistent musculoskeletal headaches will often end up visiting their dentist, having an eye check up as well as visiting their GP and physiotherapist. At Sydney Physio Clinic we are use to working in conjunction with a wide range of medical professionals to help achieve our patients desired result of being headache free.

Neck Pain Physiotherapy

Your neck is a very complex interlocking structure consisting of bones, joints, muscles, nerves, tendons and ligaments. The neck must be capable of holding up the weight of your head which weighs in at around 5 kilograms and allow multi-directional movements so it’s no wonder neck pain physiotherapy is commonly required. Not only are headaches a common symptom of people suffering with neck complaints, patients will frequently experience muscle spasm and muscle ache as well as stiffness and reduced range of motion. Nerve pain originating from the neck is a common reason for people seeking neck pain physiotherapy similar to that of sciatic nerve type pain originating from the lower back region.
If you are experiencing nerve pain, muscle spasm, muscle aches, stiffness, reduced range of motion or headaches receiving neck pain physiotherapy from a CBD physio is a safe and effective way to manage your symptoms and help prevent any recurrence.
