You can’t get rid of headaches by doing only exercises. Contrary to what some people believe, Physios use hands on techniques to relieve the tension in the muscles. By using trigger point therapy and joint mobilization techniques, we provide effective pain relief. It’s important to understand that Physios do not just send you home with exercises. We literally use our hands to change joint and muscle tissue!
Believe it or not, most common reason for tension headaches is poor posture! With more and more people working from home nowadays, it’s become extremely important to set their workstations correctly. Everything needs to be at the right position for you to sit in the correct posture. Hence our Physios do a complete assessment of your posture. This is one of the main part of our tension headache treatment. Furthermore we advise you different ways in which you can set up your work desk to avoid strain on your spine.
Prolonged sitting in front of the computer eventually leads to muscle tightness in the neck. Now because they attach to the base of the skull, these muscles start tensing them up. This in turn causes pain behind the eye or back of head pain. Hence I believe it is just so important to release tension in the neck muscles. Our physios do exactly that. This actually leads to immediate headache relief for most of our patients.
