Osteopathy and Headaches

Updated: Jun 4, 2018

Tension Headaches will often start in the neck or base of the scull and spread to involve the entire head and eyes. They may be unilateral or bilateral in nature. If severe they can lead to migraine symptoms such as nausea, light sensitivity and dizziness.

Osteopathy is an effective treatment option for people suffering from headaches and migraines.

A common cause of headaches is tension in the neck, shoulders and upper back leading to:

  • Compression of the joints.

  • Muscular Spasm.

  • Congestion.

  • Nerve irritation.

Some other causes of headaches that Osteopathy is able to assist with include:

  • Whiplash injuries.

  • Stress.

  • Postural Issues.

  • Jaw pain.

Through a hands-on approach Osteopathy is able to relieve these tensions by taking the stress of the muscles and joints and decreasing nerve irritation.
