What are Headaches?

Headaches is any pain around the head including front, back, sides or around the eyes. Types of headaches include: cluster headaches, migraines, neck related headaches, tension headaches or sinus headaches.

Typically most headaches will have some component of neck dysfunction associated with it. Thus treating the neck, correcting posture and improving neck movement and strength can lead to improvement in pain.

Headaches may also arise from sudden trauma such as a sporting injury or car accidents. Regardless of cause, physiotherapy, chiropractic care and acupuncture may significantly improve symptoms and reduce pain.
