Headaches

This information is not a definitive list but only a guide to possible causes of your pain which can be helped by your physiotherapist. There are a wide range of medical conditions that can cause your pain. An assessment by one of our physiotherapists will allow them to take a detailed history and perform a thorough examination to give a diagnosis. They can then treat you effectively or recommend a medical referral if it is required.

Your physiotherapist will be able to determine when they first assess you whether your headache is from a medical condition or as a result of problem in your muscles, joints or nerves. When muscles are tight or in spasm there are spots within the muscle known as trigger points which when pressed are very tender and can also cause pain in other areas of the body. The majority of these trigger points are not a problem but if they become activated then pain is felt at that point and also in other areas of the body ie. the head.

A Few Physiotherapy Services We Provide

Back Pain

Neck Pain

Shoulder Pain

Groin Pain

Elbow Pain

Hip Pain

Physiotherapists can use techniques such as massage and direct pressure to relieve these activated trigger points and stop the pain there and consequently relieve pain in other areas of the body ie. the head. If the headache is referred by a problem with the nerves or joints of the neck then specific techniques can used to cure the problem. Acupuncture and taping techniques can also be of help. If the problem is from your posture then your physiotherapist can teach you exercises to improve your posture and carry out an assessment of your workstation ie. improve your working posture.

Your physiotherapist will take a detailed history of your symptoms and past medical history before performing a full physical examination. There are a number of other possible causes of your symptoms which are not appropriate for a physiotherapist to treat in any way or that need a medical opinion alongside physiotherapy treatment. In this case they will recommend you to your GP or an appropriate specialist doctor or specialist consultant. These possible causes include:

  • Cardiovascular Symptoms
  • Respiratory (Breathing) Symptoms
  • Gynaecological Symptoms
  • Urinary Or Genital Symptoms
  • Digestive Symptoms
  • Immune System Symptoms
  • Lymph System Symptoms
  • Hormonal Symptoms
  • Neurological Symptoms
  • Dermatological (Skin) Symptoms
  • Medication Side-Effects
  • Virus
  • Infection
  • Cancer
  • Disease Process
  • Stress
  • Allergies
  • Psychological Problem Ie. Depression, Anxiety

Sought their help for a stubborn clogged duct. It was easy to arrange for an appointment over WhatsApp, and Megha promptly attended to me that very evening in the comfort of my home. A big thank you to Megha for her effective therapeutic ultrasound treatment and lymphatic drainage massage! She was gentle and professional in her care, and I felt instant pain relief. 10/10 would recommend her!

Megha worked wonders with her lactation massage. Super effective, and I'd recommend her to any lactating mother who needs to clear a clogged duct!

Megha was very good in analysing my husband’s condition and making informed decisions on treatment plan. She was meticulous, patient, approachable, and we are very happy and satisfied with the service provided by her. Her optimistic approach had a drastic impact on my husband’s mobility improvement, increased confidence as well as motivated him to do his exercises regularly with appropriate followup on every consecutive visits. She also shared various exercises which were of great help. Thank you Megha, wish you all the best for your future endeavours.

Had postpartum physio as I had DR after having my first born in 2021. The techniques taught during the physio were useful and I am back again to using the app to help resolve the DR and mummy tummy after having my 2nd baby. Thanks for providing an easy and convenient way for us to follow the program! 😊

I love Laura. She explains very well what is wrong and how to rectify. Her manual therapy is also very effective.

My baby had an hour session with pediatrician therapist Hui Ngoh. It was insightful and we are really thankful that we met her. We learnt a lot to help training our baby with low tone muscle. Best part, the service/assessment was done at home, the environment that the babies are ald familiar with!
