Headaches and Migraines

Headaches are very common. In fact, most of us will have had a headache at some time in our life. The two most common headaches people experience are tension-type headaches and migraines.

 

Although a tension-type headache can be bad and we may call it a migraine, it is very different. A tension-type headache comes from tension built up in the muscles, joints and ligaments around the neck, shoulders, and head. This means that the structures causing the headache can be treated with manual therapy and your headaches can be reduced in frequency and intensity!

 

A migraine is a scientific phenomenon the medical community is still figuring out. There are a variety of different causes of migraines, which means many different treatments can provide relief. What we do know is that migraines can respond well to manual therapy.
