Confirm if your headaches are coming from your neck

If the headache isn’t brought on by testing the joints in your neck  it would indicate that your headaches are not cervicogenic.  The benefit of testing this in the first assessment will make it clear whether or not physiotherapy can help.

Once we have identified the source of the headache there are a number of different modalities you can use to improve the function of your upper neck are resolve your headaches. We can guide you through each one.
