Physiotherapy for Headaches
Headaches can cause discomfort, stress and reduce your ability to concentrate. Some of the major causes of headaches are brought on by musculoskeletal issues. Problems such as muscle tightness in the shoulders and neck and nerve irritation around the cervical spine can result in the symptoms of headache. Physiotherapy can help reduce pain and restore normal movement at the neck. Your physiotherapist will use a range of different techniques to treat symptoms such as:
- Pain at the base of the skull which can extends down to the neck and shoulder blades
- Pain behind the eyebrows and forehead
- Stiffness in the neck
- Increased sensitivity to light and sound
At Leeds Physiotherapy we are able to provide effective clinical treatments which are designed to target the symptoms of the headache as well as their cause. Your physiotherapist will first complete a thorough assessment to uncover the cause of the problem and how it impacts on your life.
Your physiotherapist will design an individualised treatment package specifically for your problems. They will make use of the excellent facilities here at Leeds physiotherapy to get you back to your best as quickly as possible.
