There are three major classifications of headache: Migraine, Tension and Cervicogenic

An assessment is required to determine which classification of headaches you are suffering from as well as the unique triggers that are contributing to your pain. At Adventure Physiotherapy, we are best positioned to deal with headaches that originate from the neck (cervicogenic). Though we can help people manage tension and migraine as well.

Research currently supports education, exercise, dry needling and manual therapy for cervicogenic headache. Treatments need to be directed to improving range of motion and strength and contain a strong home exercise/activity program to be most effective.
