We all experience headaches at some time in our in lives with a reason as simple as dehydration being the cause. However there are some much more serious underlying reasons for headaches, therefore it is important to seek a diagnosis from an Osteopath or GP. The three most common headaches are migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. In clinic we most commonly see tension headaches which are caused by tension arising from the muscles, ligaments and joints at the back of the neck. Osteopathy can help to reduce this tension by improving the alignment of the spine and reducing the tension held in the soft tissue of the shoulders and neck. Studies show Osteopathy is an effective method at reducing the frequency and intensity of these headaches.
