Back to work, school or just being stuck looking at a screen all day can lead to fatigue, stiffness and in some scenarios headaches. Headaches are something experienced by people every day and can be extremely annoying. They can affect productivity in day to day activities and performing simple tasks can seem like a huge effort.  Sometimes all you need is some water and pain medication, but less known are the benefits of physiotherapy in treating your unbearable headache.

It’s firstly important to differentiate between types of headaches, to make sure something serious or sinister isn’t going on:

Cervicogenic Headache– one sided, aggravated by neck movement, tenderness/tension through the neck/shoulders

Tension headache– two sided, pressing/tightening sensation, lasting hours, mild to moderate intensity

Cluster headache – one sided, severe intensity, lasting 15 to 180 minutes, associated with restlessness and agitation

Migraine – one or two sided, moderate to severe, sensitivity to light, nausea and pulsating quality, lasting hours to days
