As a headache or migraine sufferer, you’ll know how disturbing and problematic a severe headache or migraine attack can be. Not only does it impact on you, but it can also impact on your family, friends and colleagues.

There are many factors that can be contributing to your headache or migraine. Our Myotherapists are skilled in headache assessment and will help you determine the source (one or many) of your headaches or migraines.

Tension-type headaches are the most common type and can occur due to a range of reasons including:

  • Stress
  • Fatigue
  • Overuse of Cervical/Neck muscles
  • Sleeping habits
  • Sustained poor postures – working at our desks, computers, driving, etc.
  • Referred Neck Pain

 

Once our Myotherapists have assessed your headache or migraine they will put together an individualised treatment to help you manage and stay in control of your pain.

Depending on your presentation treatment may include a combination of the following techniques:

  • Soft and Deep Tissue Massage
  • Myofascial Cupping
  • Myofascial Dry Needling
  • Stretching
  • TENS
  • Hot and Cold Therapies
  • Postural and Corrective Exercises
