Headache arising from neck dysfunction

Headaches can have a variety of causes. A type of headache known as ‘tension’ or ‘cervicogenic’ is caused by tension emanating from the muscles of neck and shoulder girdle. Headaches of this kind often respond to osteopathic treatment. We believe that osteopathic consultation should be considered in cases of recurring headaches. This is because we will aim to determine the source of your headache and whether osteopathic treatment is appropriate.
