h1>Headache & Neck

Head Neck Injury, Treaments at Hull Sports Massage.Headaches Quick link massage, ice massage, heat therapy, G5 vibration massage, Functional Taping FFTi

Headaches are an extremely common complaint. They vary in pain intensity, pattern and location from individual to individual. Although irritating the majority of headaches do not require medical intervention.

Treatment of migraines

  • Drug prescription from a medical practitioner is thought to be the most effective treatment.
  • During a migraine headache, application of a cold pack to the head may provide relief.
  • Pressing on a prominent artery found either in front of the ear or on the painful side of the head may temporarily relieve symptoms.
  • Other methods of treatment are sleep, alteration of diet, biofeedback training and reduction of stress.
  • Simple pain killers, such as aspirin, taken regularly should be avoided in the event of a migraine as this may intensify symptoms in the future.

Cluster Headache These headaches are so called as they commonly occur in ‘clusters’ over a period of weeks or months, at approximately the same time of day. Treatment for a cluster headache:

  • Specific anti-migraine drugs can help with the symptoms of a cluster headache.
  • Rapid inhalation of pure oxygen through a mask for 5 to 15 minutes is also known to help although the mechanism for this is unclear.
  • Functional Fascial Taping to the cervical spine
  • Ice therapy

Cervical Headache see cervicalgia. The other main type of headache is a cervical headache. These headaches are caused as a result of dysfunction in the muscles, joints, nerves or fascia in and around the neck region. Pain radiates towards the skull giving the sensation of a steady dull, ache. Causes of cervical headache

  • Nerve compression in the between the neck bones
  • Abnormal tenderness in the neck tissues-associated with trigger points in certain muscles. See figure below.
  • Limited neck range of movement i.e. ‘stiff neck’

Treatment of cervical headache

  • Massage to release tension in the muscles
  • Acupuncture
  • Ice therapy
  • FFT taping
  • Posture retraining

What is Whiplash? Whiplash, or acceleration / deceleration injury as it is also known is injury to the neck, caused by a rapid forwards and backwards motion of the head. This occurs most commonly from a car accident, although can also be sustained through sports involving direct contact or a fall onto the head.

What are the symptoms of Whiplash?

  • Pain and stiffness in the neck which may not come on immediately but develop over the following 24 to 48 hours
  • Reduced range of movement in the cervical spine (neck)
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision (this should go within 24 hours, if they persist consult your doctor)
  • Pain and stiffness may last a few days, to a few weeks, depending on the severity

Watch out for the following:

  • Severe pain in the back of the head
  • Pins and needles or numbness in the shoulders or arms
  • Memory loss
  • Unconsciousness

All of these symptoms could indicate a more serious injury or concussion. If any of these symptoms are present you should return to the Doctor or hospital. Treatment of Whiplash

  • Visit your Doctor or hospital to get the neck checked for fractures and nerve damage
  • Applying cold therapy can help relieve pain and inflammation in the first 24-48 hours
  • A Doctor may prescribe painkillers or anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen
  • Neck collars are not being used as widely now in the treatment of whiplash injuries because early mobilisation and range of movement exercises are being encouraged. This has been shown to decrease recovery time
  • Try to gently move your neck in all directions as soon as you feel able to and on a regular basis (every couple of hours)
  • Try to increase the range of movement each time
  • All exercises should be within pain free limits
  • After the acute phase (minimum 72 hours), manipulation and deep tissue massage may help restore normal function to the neck
  • Stretching exercises for the neck can also be used, again provided they are pain-free

Pain in the neck or cervicalgia (linked to headaches) What is cervicalgia? Cervicalgia is a pain in the neck which does not radiate outwards (or downwards) is called cervicalgia. The neck muscles are constantly under tension to hold the head up. Symptoms of cervicalgia include:

  • An occasional sharp pain in the neck, usually on movement.

  • Pain is frequent when rotating the head/neck.
  • A feeling of tightness around the neck and upper back.
  • It may be tender to palpate (feel).
  • Stiffness in the neck.
  • Headaches.

What can we do about cervicalgia?

  • Apply ice if a tear in the muscle is suspected.
  • Rest…
  • Wear a special neck collar to help the muscles rest in more severe cases.
  • Apply heat for more persistent cases (no sooner than 5 days after initial injury)
  • See a sports injury professional who can advise on rehabilitation
  • Look at possible causes of injury.

What can a therapist do?

  • Give neck exercises a programme of stretching strengthening and sports massage techniques.
  • Use electrical stimulation along with other modalities such as Functional Taping to ease the pain and discomfort.
  • Maybe apply mobilisations or manipulations.
  • Apply traction

Pain in the neck and Nervy tingles

Pain in the neck which radiates to other areas is usually a result of nerves being trapped. The cause of the trapped nerve can be tight muscles, disc damage, or formation of bony deposits.

Symptoms are:

  • Deep pain in the neck which radiates into the shoulder, arms or fingers.
  • Pain radiating up the neck into the head.
  • Pain in the neck causing dizziness or headaches.

What can a therapist do?
