Osteopathy for Headaches


Headaches may be one, or more than one cause: in the circulatory, vascular, musculoskeletal system, or the autonomic, cranial or spinal nerves.

Research has shown that Osteopathy may be effective for management of many types of headaches. Chronic and severe pain is very debilitating.

Headaches of a severe or unusual pattern should be assessed initially by your General Practitioner.


Has characteristic visual and pain symptoms; usually one-sided. 

Aggravated by exposure to trigger substances and/or hormonal factors.  

May also have musculoskeletal or toxic causes, or be associated with nerve compression.

Attacks usually relieved by rest and specific medication. May be helped by release of musculoskeletal restrictions.

Cluster Headaches

Severe headaches with causes similar to migraine, but occur often for short, regularly repeated periods.

Tension Headaches

Tension headaches or headaches of musculoskeletal origin.   

Often in temples, forehead,jaw or back of the head, where tight neck muscles insert into the skull or scalp muscles attach.

May be caused by tired eye muscles, or jaw muscle tension.

Aggravated by tension, relieved by relaxation and warmth.

May be secondary to nerve compression caused by restricted spinal joints.

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to manual medicine. It focuses on treating all aspects of the body, from bones, joints, muscles, connective tissues and nerves.
