Headaches are one of the most common types of pain experienced by almost all New Zealanders on a regular basis.
Headaches often arise from muscle stiffness or joint strain in the upper back or neck. Headaches can also be caused by:
- Eye strain
- Jaw imbalance or grinding
- Postural issues
- Sinus congestion
I can assist you with reducing headache frequency or intensity by addressing issues of muscle tension or stiffness, as well as assisting you with postural issues and muscle mobility. At times where the cause of headaches may be more severe, I can also refer you to another health professional if necessary.
If your headaches are a result of an injury, I can assist you with lodging an ACC claim-there is no need to get a GP referral in these cases.
