Headache Treatment


Associations / Affiliations


A headache is classified as pain in the head and/ or neck region, caused by a disturbance of the pain sensitive structures around the brain. There are many possible causes of a headache and treatment usually begins with the administration of analgesics.

Headaches are put into two classifications: primary and secondary. Primary headaches include migraines, tension headaches, stabbing headaches, exertion headaches and cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are the result of head or neck trauma such as whiplash after a car accident.

Primary headaches present with a pulsating pain, they can affect one or both sides of the head, and can last from 3 hours to a few days. Midrand Physiotherapist has developed a thorough treatment structure for sufferers. It is also recommended that there is adequate water intake, proper sleep routines and reducing stress and anxiety levels.
