Neck Pain & Migraines

More than 30% of headaches are the result of stiffness and tension in the neck muscles and joints.

If it is, we can help by treating the joint and muscle with specific mobilization, soft tissue techniques and exercise to relieve your pain.

The Connection Between Migraines and Neck Pain

Neck pain and migraines have a complicated relationship. While in some cases a severe injury to the neck can lead to severe headaches, in other situations neck pain could be the result of a severe migraine. Either way, it is never a good idea to assume that one is the result of the other. Seeking treatment for neck pain when the cause of your concern is actually a migraine will not lead to successful pain management. The best thing that you can do when experiencing neck pain and headaches are to consult with a Harmony Physiotherapy Ottawa to determine the cause of your pain and to address the issue from there.
