Have things got too much?
It’s amazing how much pain we can take before it becomes ‘too much’. We can go days, weeks, and sometimes even years before pain becomes overwhelming, and demands not to be ignored any longer.
As you’re here on our website reading this, it tells us that the headaches you are experiencing have got too much – and you need help, fast.
If this is the case, then I can happily say this may be the most important message you will read today.

Before we go on I want to put you at ease: the good news is that most headaches are not serious and are simply a result of today’s modern, stressful lifestyle.
Because headaches are so common, some people think they are a normal part of life. Headaches are not normal. So, just stop to think for a moment – we don’t think tooth pain or chest pain is normal, so why would we think headaches are normal?
Painkillers might give some relief from your headaches, but they do not address the cause of the problem. Headaches are a warning sing that something is wrong, so taking painkillers will mask the problem & allow it to get worse.
Headaches are common but they’re not normal.
Often, poor posture or emotional stress leads to tightness in the joints or muscles of the neck increasing and playing a large part in this condition.
There are many types of headaches.
- Tension headaches are often associated with our hectic lifestyle and stress.
- Migraines can be very debilitating and disturbing: sometimes there is no headache, but other symptoms like visual and audio disturbances, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, even vomiting. Pain can be felt at the base of the skull, the surface of the head or the face and eyes. It may be felt on both sides or one side of the head.
- Mechanical stress caused by poorly functioning neck joints can affect the nerves of the face, head and neck. There can be damage to the muscles and ligaments of the neck, a jaw imbalance and problems in other areas of the spine. When spinal nerves and associated tissues are stretched or irritated, they can produce throbbing headaches.
Pain killers just hide the cause, allowing your problem to get worse.
Allow us to help you move away from pain and relying on painkillers and move towards a life where headaches are not part of daily life.
Our osteopaths have the skills necessary to take a full medical history and make a diagnosis as to whether the headaches are a sign of a more serious condition that will need to be referred to the appropriate health care provider, or something that can be treated with osteopathy.
