Headaches

headache or cephalalgia is pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. It can be asymptom of a number of different conditions of the head and neck.The brain tissue itself is not sensitive to pain because it lacks pain receptors. Rather, the pain is caused by disturbance of the pain-sensitive structures around the brain. Several areas of the head and neck have these pain-sensitive structures, which are the cranium (the periosteum of the skull muscles nerves arteries and veins, subcutaneous tissues, eyes, ears, sinuses and mucous membranes.

Physiotherapy uses a number of physical and electrical techniques to treat injury or disease and improve quality of life. Physiotherapy aims to restore the body to a normal functioning state by employing techniques such as massage, manipulation, mobilisation, heat and hydrotherapy. Headaches are a complex type of pain and there is evidence that a high percentage of headaches are due to problems in the neck structure.Physiotherapy can help solve these problems and put a stop to the associated headaches.
