Headaches

HOW CAN PHYSICAL THERAPY AND MASSAGE HELP YOU?

Physiotherapy in Earlsfield including massage to the neck, can be very quick and effective at relieving your tension headache through relaxation of muscles which are under excessive tension or in spasm. It is important to remember that excessive muscle tension will compress, distort or irritate joint structures, including nerves, that can cause cervicogenic headaches (headaches originating from a dysfunction in your neck) which will further complicate your symptoms.

Your tension headache treatment may include all or some of the following techniques:

  • Stiff neck joints may need to be loosened or unlocked via joint mobilisation (gentle gliding techniques), joint traction or in specific cases a gentle and localised joint manipulation technique.
  • Hypermobile (or dynamically unstable) joints may require specific deep neck muscle strengthening exercises to stabilise, control and limit the joint movement available.
  • Tight or overactive muscles may require stretching, massage, acupuncture, dry needling, or other relaxation techniques.
  • Weak muscles may require specific strengthening exercises. This may include your postural shoulder blade and neck muscles.
  • Nerve dysfunction may be addressed by your physical therapist depending upon your specific examination findings. Nerve sensitivity is a common finding associated with neck conditions, tension and muscle spasm as well as poor posture. Specific treatment and home stretches can improve nerve mobility or reduce nerve irritation.
  • Posture correction may be recommended via specific exercises, posture awareness techniques, taping or a posture brace.

 

Chronic pain Treatment with Physiotherapy in Earlsfield

If you suffer from chronic pain, you’ve probably at some point been told that you’re supposed to stay as active as possible. However the thought probably makes you cringe, especially when sometimes, just getting through the day at home or work is hard enough. This is where a physiotherapist in Wandsworth clinic can help you with physiotherapy in Earlsfield. They can give you a personalised strengthening and exercise plan, and help you learn how to manage your daily life and reduce pain through certain treatments.

Earlsfield Physio treatments can come in many forms, and sometimes more than one treatment may be needed. Pain is as unique as the people who it affects and successful treatment is all about tailoring a solution to your individual situation, pain type and patterns.

Another very important component of your physiotherapy in Earlsfield is the relationship you have with your Physio in Earlsfield. While this relationship may be an ‘on-again, off-again’ one that may span months or even years, it is essential you connect and develop belief and trust. This is crucial because an important part of your physiotherapy in Earlsfield will involve discussing and understanding your pain, talking during the treatment sessions, working on activity plans and pacing or goal setting with you. The role of your Earlsfield Physio in your pain management, should be one of partner and facilitator of the process.

Physiotherapy in Wandsworth clinic includes both passive and active treatments. Passive treatments help to relax you and your body, and are called ‘passive’ because you don’t have to actively participate.

Your physiotherapy in Earlsfield programme may start with passive treatments, or they may be used during bad flare-ups, but the real goal is to get into active treatments. These are therapeutic exercises that strengthen your body and help you deal with the chronic pain, ultimately giving you more confidence and independence.

PASSIVE PHYSIOTHERAPY IN EARLSFIELD

These treatments include:

Deep tissue massage

This technique targets spasms and chronic muscle tension that perhaps builds up through daily life stress. You could also have spasms or muscle tension because of strains or sprains. The Physio in Earlsfield uses direct pressure and friction to try to release the tension in your soft tissues (ligaments, tendons, muscles).

Manual therapy

This is a hands-on treatment used to mobilise and manipulate joints that maybe stiff and contributing to your pain.

Dry needling

This is a form of acupuncture in which the Earlsfield Physio inserts small needles into trigger points in the muscles to release spasm, promote healing and reduce pain

Strapping or bracing

This can be applied to support a specific joint or muscle or to help correct posture and alignment that may be contributing to your pain.

Passive therapies, such as those listed above, are generally done in conjunction with active therapies.

In the active part of physiotherapy in Earlsfield, your Earlsfield Physio will teach you various exercises to improve your flexibility, strength, core stability, and range of motion (the range your joints can move through). Your Physio in Earlsfield will also work with you to find which activities will suit you best and help keep you motivated.

Your physiotherapist in Wandsworth clinic will also help you to correct any postural issues that may be contributing to your pain, and advise you on how to set up your desk and computer optimally, or how to lift or carry things without harming yourself. This is all part of the “self-care” or “self-treatment” aspect of physiotherapy in Earlsfield. Through Physio in Earlsfield, you learn good habits and principles that enable you to take better care of your body.

Chronic pain patients are often caught in a cycle where they avoid activity because it causes pain which in turn leads to inactivity. This creates an unhealthy lifestyle, which in turn reduces strength, endurance, range of motion of your joints and muscles and affects your overall sense of wellbeing and confidence. As you get weaker, you become more susceptible to injury and unable to work through the healing process. And so the cycle continues. Thats where active and passive treatments help.

Earlsfield Physio assess, diagnose and clinically reason what can be causing the problem. Physio in Earlsfield try to explain possible conditions in a plain and simple way to our patients e.g. why you have a ‘dodgy knee’, why your back is playing up or why you have stiffness and soreness in muscles or joints first thing in the morning.

Earlsfield Physio use variety of manual therapy skills like manipulation of joints, soft tissue release and trigger point therapy to treat the symptoms and underlying cause. Our aim is to minimize pain and maximize function by using tailored exercise programme along with hands-on treatment. Especially for Sports injuries, Physio in Earlsfield are able to help and support healing by using taping and strapping techniques.

Dry Needling for Trigger points

Physio in Wandsworth can also use acupuncture needles  to manipulate trigger points, which may be causing stiffness, pain, headaches etc.

HOW IS DRY NEEDLING BELIEVED TO WORK

Dry needling is based on the theory that when trigger points develop in the soft tissues, they lead to neuromuscular dysfunction, which results in pain, decreased function and increased stress on the surrounding soft tissue structures. Trigger points are ‘hyper- irratable’ areas in soft tissue structures such as fascia and muscle and dry needling is used to elicit a twitch response to release the trigger point and restore normal function to the tissue.

Studies have shown that needling deactivates the trigger point and facilitates the muscle to relax and lengthen, alleviating the original problem area as well as the secondary, referred pain area. It is believed to stimulate the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals which help block pathways that relay pain messages from the body to the brain, resulting in relief of pain, general relaxation and biochemical restoration of the body. The improved biochemical balance stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities, reduces inflammation, and promotes physical and emotional well-being. Localised increases in circulation around the needle is also believed to support tissue healing. However both acupuncture and drying needling still remains controversial. The strongest evidence base currently lies in the treatment of low back pain.

HOW IS DRY NEEDLING DONE?

Dry needling involves the use of single-use, pre-sterilised disposable needles of varying sizes that pierce the skin. A number of needles may be used during each treatment, either directly into the painful area or even distally away from the area. They are typically left in position anywhere from a few minutes
