How Can Physiotherapy Help Headaches

How can physiotherapy help headaches

Another day, another headache? It doesn’t have to be like that.

More than half of Australians don’t consider headaches to be serious enough to seek help. Don’t be one of them…

Woken up with a headache? You’re not alone. It is estimated that up to 7 million Australians suffer from headaches, and a staggering 1 in 20 adults in the developed world gets them every day. Studies have shown that over 23% of households in Australia contain one person who suffers from severe headaches. (Australian Bureau of Statistics)

Headaches are one of the most common illnesses in Australia, with around 15 per cent of us taking painkillers for a headache at any given time. Because headaches are so common, most people think they are a normal part of life. However, a persistent headache is a sign that something is wrong.

The continual use of pain medication to combat headaches is like removing the warning light that alerts you to a problem in your car!  Medication doesn’t solve your headache, it simply offers a short term solution to reduce the pain.

The good news is that in reading this, you’re one of a growing number looking for a solution. And Northern Districts Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic is the right place to come.

The most common type of headaches we see are ‘tension type’, and the pain is usually experienced on both sides of the head. These kinds of headache are often caused by muscle tension—due to overuse, poor posture and sitting down for long periods of the day—which results in joint restrictions in the neck and upper back, stress, anxiety and fatigue.

How We Can Help You.

Physiotherapy can be very effective at relieving your headache symptoms. At NDPE, during your initial consultation we will diagnose the problem and assess which treatment technique will be most effective for you. Our team is dedicated to providing the best care and treatment to our patients; developing individually tailored treatment plans. We look at the root cause of your headache and any other contributing factors. Every person is different so their treatment should be too!
