'I feel as if my whole head is about to explode. The throbbing and tightness is unbearable.'
'My neck is so stiff, I feel as if it's going to snap if I move, so I sort of twist my body around it.'
'Sometimes my head feels like a battlefield, every part of my face hurts.'
'Just want to crawl into a dark space and be left alone, it's that painful'
If the end result is a severe headache, there lies a probable cause, especially when it comes to tension or muscular headaches. At Physio SW19, as with any trauma, we prefer to investigate all probable causes, and then treat and advise on pain management.
Your body, we believe is a map of your timeline, the hard knocks; turns, wear and tear, which will leave traces of how you have changed you posture, gait or sleeping pattern to make allowances for a certain lifestyle, an accident in the past, or simply the way you hold your baby - all of which will trigger tension or muscular headaches.
Dealing with these types of headaches is paramount to restore your balance, both literally and figuratively, in life. We can assist with thorough exercise, manipulation, advice and complimentary programmes to get you back in shape and guard against repeat patterns of stress and tension bringing about those unhealthy bouts of headache agony.
'What kind of headache do I have?'' She asks wearily, her shoulders frigid, eyes watering, barely able to get the words out.
Ah, we say, the most common types of headaches are:
- Tension and Muscular Headaches
- Sinus Headaches
- Rebound Headaches
- Migraine Headaches
- Cluster Headaches
Whilst the latter may not be curable, all headaches, we believe are manageable with the correct body and lifestyle maintenance.
We can help when it hurts.
