Is your enjoyment of life impaired by a sore neck or headaches?
Underlying mechanical problems with your neck and head posture can be the root cause of headaches and migraines. Aquasports physiotherapists are experts at identifying problematic joint dysfunction, postures and movement patterns that may cause and maintain your symptoms.
Neck pain and headaches have many causes including:
- Poor ergonomics
- Reduced joint mobility
- Muscle imbalance
- Poor postural habits
- Repetitive movements
- Poor general fitness and strength
- Previous trauma e.g. whiplash
Physiotherapy treatment is initially based around pain management, which includes massage, postural education, mobilisation, acupuncture and dry needling. Follow on treatment is orientated around lasting relief and self-management. This will include specific corrective exercises, stretching, core stability exercises and general strengthening.
We believe that every patient is unique and solutions differ accordingly. Treatment could be as simple as making changes to sleeping postures and pillows. We use “Posture Screen” software to enable you to visualise any postural abnormality which may be contributing to your symptoms.
