There are many types of headaches ranging from a throbbing head to an all out migraine, where all you want to do is curl up in bed in the dark in total silence! There can be all sorts of triggers for headaches, such as noise, bright light, fatigue and stress. Symptoms can range from a throbbing pain, sharp pain as well as nausea and vomiting.
Poor posture and holding oneself constantly around the shoulders and neck can lead to tension headaches. Even a fallen arch in the foot, altered biomechanics in the pelvis and back can all lead to tension in the head.
Osteopathy can help to unwind tension in the muscles in and around the back, neck and shoulders as well as relieve any associated restrictions in the joints.
