Headaches & Migraines
With over £1 billion being spent on over-the-counter medications to try and treat migraines and headaches it is logical that many people are now turning to Osteopaths to help ease the pain.
Cervicogenic headaches arise as muscles in the back of the neck and scalp tighten. These headaches are at the back of the head and often above the eyes. They can occur as a result of poor posture or sitting at a desk for prolonged periods of time and tend to be regular.
A migraine is much more than a bad headache, Migraine sufferers experience nausea, extreme sensitivity to light and noise, and sometimes dizziness or lightheadedness. If you are a chronic sufferer of migraines then there will be a long-term knock on effect to the muscles and structures of the neck which exacerbate the symptoms.
