Headaches can often originate from stiffness and inflammation in the upper neck as well as the strap muscles around the neck area. We call these cervicogenic headaches. We have been having great success at treating headaches and neck pain combining physiotherapy with acupuncture and local cryotherapy.
Physiotherapy focuses on restoring movement to stiff neck joints, reducing muscle spasm and rehabilitation through specific neck exercises. Acupuncture further reduces pain while local cryotherapy is a powerful anti-inflammatory and pain relieving treatment.
This combination of treatments has been phenomenal in treating cervicogenic headaches.
