There are several different types of headache, the main types are:
- Tension Headaches

Most headaches are not serious and can be treated with pharmacy remedies and lifestyle changes. Physiotherapy can also be a very effective form of treatment for tension headaches and migraines. Often symptoms of headache can be due to postural dysfunction, muscular trigger points, upper cervical spine dysfunction, stress, hormonal changes, or muscular imbalances.
Physiotherapy can address these issues through a variety of different treatment techniques, including:
- Joint mobilisations
- Trigger point release techniques
- Myofascial release techniques
- Cranio-Sacral Therapy
- Postural re-education
