Migraine & Headache

Difference between Migraines and headache is basically migraine is a more intense form of headaches that involved sensitivity to lights, pain behind your eyes or ears and also vomiting.

Headaches often start as pain in your neck that gradually spreads upwards & progresses from the back of your head to then reach your temples, face, forehead & eyes. They may be associated with dizziness or nausea.

The headache may be on one side of your head or both, but will not swap sides during the headache. Headaches will be brought on or worsened by certain neck movements or sustained postures such as desk work, driving, repeated lifting or carrying.

  1. Nausea or vomiting
  2. Stabbing or shooting sensation around temporal area
  3. Limited of movement of the cervical spine 

Physiotherapy treatments for Migraine & Headache?


At PhysioPilates Clinic, our physiotherapist will perform a thorough assessment for our client and conclude the potential cause of your problem. We will develop a management plan for your  pain.       

  1. Ergonomic reeducation : It is very often that desk bound job nature tends to put strain in the neck and shoulder area due to the slouched and poke chin posture for long period of time contributing to muscle fatigue and tightness. We educate you the correct posture on your work desk.
  2.  Exercises: Poor posture causes weakness in the stabilising muscles at the front of your neck & your upper back. We will teach you specific strengthening exercises to optimise your muscle length & movement patterns as it is important to strengthen these muscles to make sure you keep correct posture & minimise the risk of future problems.
  3. Dry needling targets to relieve the tightness and tension build in the neck muscles trigger points. We may use this technique to improve range of cervical motion and decreasing tension in the associated muscles.
