What causes headaches?

There are many different causes of headaches including cervical and tension headaches, cluster headaches, migraines, and other medical causes.

Physiotherapists are excellent at treating tension and cervical headaches.

These types of headaches usually begin as pain and headache at the base of the skull. Pain can be one sided or both, and can refer into the skull and face. These headaches are typically not as intense as migraines and clusters, but tend to last longer.

Physiotherapy treatment for cervicogenic and tension headaches include a variety of pain relief techniques – perhaps including acupuncture or needling if your therapists has acquired those skills. Also beneficial is a home exercise program of postural correction and hands on therapy for the affected muscles and joints.
