Tension Headaches and Osteopathy

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache that people come to me with. These headaches are described as a dull or achy pain that wraps around the head like a headband.

There can be many reasons that a person may suffer from tension headaches. This includes stress, anxiety, tiredness and eyestrain. They can become chronic over time if not given the proper treatment.

A few ways that you can help reduce your tension headaches or prevent yourself from having them would be getting enough sleep, engaging in regular exercise and finding ways to relax such as a hobby or a sport you enjoy playing.

Manual osteopathy can also help with the treatment of tension headaches by reducing the stress in the muscles of the neck. By helping those muscles relax, you will also notice that your shoulders may sit a little lower than before and that your neck will be able to move with a lot more ease.
