Specialist Headache Physio Brisbane

Not all severe, recurring headaches are migraines. Headaches arising from the neck are known as “cervicogenic” headaches and are often associated with a predictable pattern of findings on examination.

SPECIALIST PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR HEADACHES

Identification of these patterns helps us to differentiate between migraine, tension-type headache and cervicogenic headache.  This helps us to provide effective treatment with manual therapy, exercise therapy and ergonomic recommendations.

We are specialists at managing the cervical cause or component of the following types of headache:

  • Cervical (or cervicogenic) headache
  • Migraine with aura
  • Migraine without aura
  • Chronic tension-type headache
  • Episodic tension-type headache
  • Post traumatic headache.
