Headaches

Have you had treatment in the past with temporary results or even no results at all? Maybe you’ve tried different types of treatment such as Physiotherapy, Chiropractor, Osteopathy or Sports Therapy and each has had its own partial success but not left you pain free.

We see you differently. Our exclusive ‘Physology’ method is an advanced assessment and treatment system developed over 10 years, recently adopted by Everton FC, Premier League/England Players, following our results in curing patients with chronic pain in shorter periods of time.

Physology is centred around the latest research into Fascia which is well established in the USA and recognised as the missing link in pain treatment. We combine theories and hands on techniques from multiple disciplines.

Tension headaches are the most typical form of headaches, which can be caused by tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp, and jaw.

  • They may be related to posture, holding your head and neck in an abnormal position, a head injury, depression, anxiety or stress.
  • It is common for tension headaches to be on both sides of your head. They usually start at the back of your head and spread forward. The pain may feel dull and diffused or squeezing pressure. Your neck, shoulders or jaw may feel sore and tight.

Migraine headaches are more severe headaches that usually develop with other symptoms such as nausea and changes to vision.

  • The pain may be pounding, pulsating or throbbing. It often begins on one side of your head, although it may spread to both sides.
  • You may experience an "aura" (a group of warning symptoms that start before your migraine). The pain often gets worse as you move around.
  • Migraine headaches may be triggered by foods such as sugar, chocolate, cheese or MSG. Alcohol, withdrawing from caffeine and sleep deprivation may also trigger them.

Re-bound headaches - as the name suggests these are headaches, which keep re-occurring and may happen from overuse of painkillers. These are sometimes referred to as medication overuse headaches. Patients who take pain medication 3 days a week or more can develop this type of headache.

Other types of headaches

Cluster headaches are painful, sharp headaches that tend to occur several times a day for months and then disappear for a month too.

Sinus headaches cause pain in your face and the front of your head. They are the result of swelling in the sinus passages behind the eyes, nose and cheeks. The pain tends to be worse when you wake up in the morning and when you bend forward.

Headaches may occur if you have a cold, a fever, the flu or premenstrual syndrome.

A swollen, inflamed artery (which supplies blood to part of the head, temple, and neck area) can occur with a disorder called temporal arteritis.

Rarely, a headache may be a sign of a more serious cause, such as:

  • Very high blood pressure
  • Brain tumor
  • Brain infection like meningitis or encephalitis, or abscess
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Problems with the blood vessels and bleeding in the brain, such as arteriovenous malformation (AVM), brain aneurysm, or stroke
  • Pseudomotor cerebri
  • Benign exertional headache
  • Bilious headache
  • Blind headache
  • Cluster headache
  • Coital headache
  • Drug-induced headache
  • Fibrositic headache
  • Histaminic headache

Treatment

Migraines can be successfully treated 100% of the time if you can find the underlying cause, rather than just the symptoms. During your assessment your practitioner will carry out a full body assessment to look at your alignment and function (how your body moves and which muscle it uses to do so.)

This form of migraine assessment not only assesses your migraines, it also identifies the root cause. For example, the root cause of migraines may be caused by a mis-alignment or impact elsewhere in the body that causes your body to function incorrectly. Physology treat both the migraines and the cause to ensure symptoms don’t return.

Your practitioner will explain why your migraines started in simple terms you understand. You will also be left with your assessment form which will have diagrams and details of your symptoms which you can refer to at a later date to see the fast results you will achieve with Physology.

After your assessment we can begin treatment which also takes place in your first appointment. At the end of the appointment an outlined treatment plan is discussed which will successfully treat your migraine symptoms  &eradicate the cause to prevent re-occurrence of your pain.
