Dizziness and Headaches are very common, occurring in up to 60% of the population. The cause of these symptoms can come from the joints, muscles and fascia of the neck or jaw. Headaches, which progressively worsen towards the end of the day, are often contributed to by poor posture, reduced muscular control or a non-optimal workstation set up.
Physiotherapy aims to determine the exact cause of the symptoms through a thorough assessment of the neck, jaw and posture. Physiotherapy treatment involves mobilising abnormal joints, soft tissue techniques and retraining the muscular stabilising system to support the head and neck effectively. Once the pain, dizziness and headaches have resolved the physiotherapist will instruct you on an exercise program to best manage your condition independently.
