Most headache sufferers and some doctors are unaware of the high incidence of neck related headaches—it is definitely something worth thinking about!
The upper part of the neck has a nerve supply capable of creating head pain (with or without obvious neck pain and restriction). Problems with the jaw can also cause similar symptoms which may require physiotherapy.
Any of the following points could suggest that the neck may be causing or contributing to headaches:
- Headache which persists after a doctor has checked for other causes
- Headache which always feels worse on the same side of the head
- Pain which radiates from the back to the front of the head
- Headache with dizziness
Soft tissue tightness and specific patterns of joint stiffness have been shown to contribute to headaches of cervical origin. At The Clinic we have physiotherapists who are very experienced in the management of these conditions.
