Physiotherapy can be extremely effective in treating headaches and helping patients with long-term maintenance and self help techniques.
Here at Gosling we approach the treatment of headaches with a multi technique approach. We ensure that each patient has an in-depth assessment looking into causing factors guiding us to an effective treatment approach.
We have found that using a combination of joint mobilising techniques, myofascial work and postural stability work is very useful when dealing with cervicogenic/thoracic problems. Many of our physiotherapists also are very experienced acupuncturists and we are finding that combining acupuncture with manual therapy often gives us the best outcome. Acupuncture can also be used to treat other types of headaches successfully.
