Headaches, Head & Neck Pain
At SMPC all of our physiotherapists are all experienced in assessing and treating head and neck injuries and pain. Poor posture, incorrect sport techniques and sporting injuries are all common reasons people develop headaches or neck pain.
Some common head and neck conditions we can help with:
- Neck related headaches
- Disc conditions
- Neck stiffness
- Facet joint dysfunction
- Postural related headache and neck pain
- Strains and Sprains
In order to gain an accurate diagnosis of your head and/or neck condition, on your initial appointment one of the experienced SMPC physiotherapists will run through an assessment of your head and/or neck injury or pain by observing and testing your head and neck in ways such as the movement and strength of your neck, assessing posture or workstation setup.
Our physiotherapy treatment for head and neck pain/injuries may consist of administering mobilisation, dry needling, remedial massage, manipulation, stretching or taping based on the diagnosis identified in the initial assessment.
Depending on the diagnosis of your head and neck injury/pain we will develop a personalised program to help heal and prevent further pain and/or injury in the future. This may consist of exercises, improvement of posture or proper workstation setup.
