CASE STUDY: Headache

Mr B a 25 year old office worker came to the clinic with a 2 year history of headaches which were worsening over the recent months. He had seen his GP on various occasions and been prescribed varying medications with no long term benefit so he had been recommended to try physiotherapy.

A thorough examination showed poor posture with an upper neck joint problem combined with very tight and weak muscles in the neck.

Treatment consisted of mobilisations of the affected joints and soft tissue work including massage. He was also given some self help exercises which included muscle strengthening for the neck and advice about posture at work which included correct work station positioning.

At the end of the course of treatment Mr B had been headache free for over one month.. He was pleased to be able to self manage his problem and that he knew the correct posture for him at work.
