Cervicogenic headaches (often called ‘tension headaches’) are the most common form of headaches. They are caused by muscular tension around the head and neck and present as a constant pressure around the skull. These headaches can affect everyday life, especially when they increase in frequency and duration.
Tension headaches can affect anyone, although it is common in those with increased stress. Postural factors can also aggravate and trigger an episode and therefore is common in those who spend a lot of time at a computer or desk.
Osteopathy offers a wide range of techniques to reduce the tension in muscle surrounding the head and neck. A mixture of joint mobilization and soft tissue massage is considered the most effective method of relieving pain and preventing return of tension headaches.
We can also advise on exercises to facilitate the healing process and reduce the likelihood of the incident re-occuring.
