About Headaches and Migraines
A headache is a nervous system condition that varies in terms of the intensity and frequency of the pain being felt in the upper neck, head, and face. A primary headache results from an independent condition that triggers pain in a specific region, but a secondary headache is usually the result of another ongoing medical condition.
On the other hand, a migraine can be recognized as a more painful form of a headache that’s more debilitating and intense.

Treat Headaches and Migraines with Physiotherapy
Specialized physiotherapy makes use of treatments that put external pressure on joints, muscles, ligaments, and nerves around the neck to relieve any pain or stress that may grow into a headache. Headaches are widely recognized in three forms:
- Tension HeadacheThis form of headache is caused due to the contraction of muscles in the head and neck. It results from fatigue, trauma, withdrawal, or excessive screen exposure.
- Cervicogenic HeadacheA cervicogenic headache is caused mainly due to heavy weight lifting activities, poor posture, or whiplash. The pain is largely felt in the forehead, head, jaw, eyes, and ears.
- Migraine HeadacheMigraine usually occurs on only one side of the head, either left or right — it’s very unlikely for a migraine to penetrate across the whole head. Symptoms of migraine often appear as nausea, throbbing pain, trouble focusing, and noise and light sensitivities. There are tens of causes of migraine, including changes in weather, hormonal changes, loud noises, bright lights, food sensitivities, dehydration, and undereating.
Regardless of the form of headache or migraine you may be inflicted by, there’s a relief for your condition in specialized physiotherapy offered at Boost Physiotherapy. Our trained physiotherapists use therapies to treat pain in the face, head, or neck.
