Headaches, migraine and jaw Pain

Although the cause of headaches is often multifactorial, one of the most common factors is tension in the upper neck.

Osteopaths can gently and effectively release tension in the neck, as well as any other areas that may be contributing to the problem, often including the upper back and shoulders and the tissues in the head. Postural advice, including workstation set up or some simple exercises may also be prescribed, to ease your discomfort, and keep your head clear.

Did you know osteopaths can also help with jaw pain? As well as being another cause of headaches, tension in the jaw can create stiffness and pain locally. Treatment can be great after a long dental appointment, or to ease painful clicking in the jaw.
