Do you suffer from constant Headaches?
Our team of Myotherapists and Osteopaths, specialise and have special interests in headaches, migraines, jaw pain and neck pain and will review your symptoms upon your initial consultation. Your initial consultation will include a hands on approach (manual therapy), an assessment as well as some exercises to focus on a personalised pain management plan which is aimed at reducing short term and long term pain relief from headaches, migraines and neck pain.
As we all know headaches can be debilitating, especially migraines can ruin your day and sometimes even your whole week!
Below are some strategies which MyoActive implements to reduce your pain and improve your quality of life.
Manual Therapy – Which includes soft and deep tissue massage which improves blood flow and circulation towards the area of discomfort and can reduce muscle tension in head and neck. Most of the times the base of the skull is where the discomfort may start also known as the upper trapezius area which is difficult to release the tension yourself.
Dry needling – Inserting small acupuncture needles into trigger points will cause a neuro stimulation to occur which will ease pain and increase range of motion and blood supply to the surrounding muscle groups.
Exercise prescription – The most important for long term pain relief is to strengthen the surrounding muscles of the neck, upper back and postural muscles, through our private gym facility.
Self Release Tools – The team at MyoActive will also show you how to relieve the neck yourself with a MyoActive Lacrosse ball, it will soon become your best friend for all muscle related pain!
As Myotherapist we will listen to your body, the most important thing is to figure out why they keep occuring and develop a plan of attack to prevent them from coming back.
