Did you know that in a high proportion of headache and migraine sufferers, treating your upper neck or strengthening your neck successfully treats headaches?



Is it headache or is it a migraine? Either way, the result is often extremely debilitating. “I’ve tried everything but nothing has given me relief.” We hear this quote a lot in our clinic. Not only does it impact on you, but also your ability to work and your immediate family and friends.


There are now thought to be over 300 causes of headaches and migraine.


Overactivity of the trigeminal nerve appears to be a big factor and Physio works to settle this.



There are now thought to be over 300 causes of headaches and migraine.

Most fall into three categories:

  • Neck Headache (Cervicogenic Headache)
  • Tension Type Headache 
  • Migraine

If you are suffering from headaches or migraines, your GP will understandably rely on medication to find relief. Many people do not realise that there are other treatment options available with long lasting results without the use of drugs.






Here at The JSSC, we have a special interest in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of neck related migraine and headache disorders even if the pain is only in your head.


For further information, please contact the clinic or book an initial course of appointments with Nigel.
