Suboccipital headaches are mostly found in people with poor posture, which places a lot of pressure in the area, causing muscle spasm and irritating the nerves surrounding the area.
People with suboccipital headache usually experience:
• Pain, stiffness, ache at the base of the skull
• Pain radiating to the front and behind the eyes
• Nausea or dizziness
Chiropractic treatments can manage occipital headache in a drug-free and effective manner. Our chiropractor would focus on treating the root cause of the headache and neck pain. Treatments would usually involve joint manipulation/mobilisation, trigger point therapy, home stretches and kinesiotaping.
