Relieve Your Cervicogenic Headache with Physiotherapy

Do you experience headaches that seem to stem from the neck? You may be one of many individuals suffering from cervicogenic headaches. These headaches originate from issues in the neck, often causing discomfort and impacting your daily life.

There is a solution that doesn’t involve relying solely on painkillers. Physiotherapy can offer targeted treatments that provide relief and long-term solutions for cervicogenic headaches.

Cervicogenic headaches are a specific type of headache that originate from issues in the cervical spine (neck). These headaches can be triggered by poor posture, neck injuries, muscle tension, or underlying conditions affecting the neck vertebrae, muscles or nerves. The pain typically radiates from the neck to the back of the head or temples, often leading to a dull, persistent ache or throbbing sensation.

Physiotherapy seeks to identify the root cause of cervicogenic headaches. Unlike temporary pain relief offered by medications, physiotherapy aims to address the underlying musculoskeletal issues and improve overall neck function.

Your journey to relief begins with a thorough assessment by a skilled physiotherapist. They’ll evaluate your posture, range of motion, muscle strength, and any specific triggers that might be exacerbating your headaches. This personalised approach ensures a tailored treatment plan uniquely suited to your needs.

Physiotherapy can employ a range of techniques to alleviate cervicogenic headaches

Manual Therapy:

Hands-on techniques like joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage, and manipulation help improve mobility and reduce tension in the neck and upper back.

Exercise Prescription:

Customised exercises and stretches are designed to strengthen weak muscles, improve posture, and enhance flexibility in the neck and shoulders.

Postural Correction:

Educating patients on proper posture and ergonomics is key to preventing recurrent headaches. Simple adjustments in daily activities can significantly reduce strain on the neck.


Patient Education:

Understanding the triggers and learning self-management techniques empower patients to take control of their condition outside the clinic.

Long-Term Benefits:

The beauty of physiotherapy lies in its focus on long-term solutions. By addressing the root cause of cervicogenic headaches, patients not only experience relief but also gain tools and knowledge to prevent future occurrences. It’s about achieving lasting improvements in neck function and overall well-being.
