OSTEOPATHY TREATMENT FOR HEADACHES
There are many causes of headache that our Osteopaths are trained to diagnose and treat.
Some common sources of headache include:
- Neck or shoulder referral
- Sinus problems
- Jaw dysfunction
- Sinus headaches
- Tension type headaches
- Postural strains
- Trauma or injury
Osteopaths are primary health care practitioners, and are trained to recognise causes of headaches which may require referral. We may also refer you for radiological assessment or communicate with your healthcare specialist or GP.
What will treatment involve?
During an appointment, a case history is taken, followed by an Osteopathic examination to help identify the type and cause of headache being experienced.
Treatment may help alleviate symptoms and reduce the chance of reoccurrence. Osteopathic treatment may be combined with advice on rehabilitation exercises, postural involvement, sport participation, dietary advice or pain relief advice to help implement an overall management plan.
