Your neck is a very mobile structure and very strong one too! It supports the head which weighs an impressive 1/7th of our total body weight. Head and Neck pain could arise for a number of reasons but often due to the large number of muscles ligaments, joints and nerves we see the pain arising from
Postural compensations and/or adaptations from being desk bound all day.
Traumatic accidents such as road traffic accidents (whiplash), Sprots injuries also.
The natural degenerative process that occurs as we age (which can really be debilitating especially if the nerves are affected).
Headaches are another common reason why patients will visit an osteopath. It is often caused by upper back or neck disturbance which can cause ‘pressure’ on nerves which are reflected into the neck, back of the skull or even to the tops and sides of the head. At Body Balance your Osteopath will examine these areas thoroughly seeking to find the root cause of your headaches. Soft tissue’s such as muscles and ligaments may need work or sometime small joints in the neck will need mobilising as well as cranial osteopathy often being an effective treatment. The number of treatments will depend on the severity and length of time that you have had your symptoms.
Research recently has also shown that Osteopathic treatment has helped those who suffer with long term chronic migraines too.
