I was in severe pain for months, seeing a number of specialists, having a number of tests performed and not really getting to the root of the issue. The wait to get into the pain clinic was 14 months. In August I decided to try massage therapy and it has been an amazing experience. I can say that I am 90% better than i was and able to do so many things that I have not been able to do for such a long period of time. Thank you Daryl.

Where can your headaches and neck pain come from?

Neck pain and headaches can come from many reasons, here are a few of the common areas that we see.

Neck injuries and headaches can happen for many reasons and they can develop gradually or come on suddenly, with a dull or sharp pain. 

Headaches can be from vascular problems, organ dysfunctions, spinal alignment, and referred pain from muscles (cervicogenic headaches) to name only a few.

Having neck pain alone is a challenge, especially if it involves neck stiffness and reduced head mobility.

When a headache is also present, additional problems may include increased pain, visual disturbances, concentration issues, dizziness, or others.

If you have chronic neck pain and headaches, visceral manipulation may provide you with great results. 

It’s important to find out why you’re having headaches or neck pain and what you can do to get out of the pain, so you can enjoy Victoria, BC.

Common types of headaches or neck pain

Our holistic approach to back pain in Victoria involves the use of hands-on manual therapy and corrective exercises to keep you feeling better, longer.

Cervicogenic Headaches

This is also called the “neck headache”. This is where you get the pain from that neck that gives you the headache sensation, caused by a joint in the neck. Your headache may seem to radiate from the back to the front of your head, provoked or eased by a neck movement, a sustained posture, stomach sleeping or with your head turned to one side. It may normally appears to be worse on one side of your head. The side is normally constant and does not swap sides.

Neck Pain

This is area that we work on with our clients. It can come from your sport, work, poor posture, or a car accident. This is a common area where people “hold stress”. Tension headache is a common headache characterized by moderate to severe non-throbbing pain in the forehead, scalp, and neck. Tension headache occurs when muscles of the scalp and neck become tense, such as from tension, stress, fear, and/or emotions.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disk disease, or DDD, occurs when regular changes in your spinal disks start to “wear down”. Spinal disks are your shock absorbers, the jelly donuts if you will, between the bones of your spine. As we get older, they start to show signs of wear and tear and this may or may not cause pain.

Chronic Back Pain

This can range from where you carry your stress, bacterial imbalances in the gut, and period pain.

Organ Dysfunction

This is where our smart approach to therapy helps find the reason you have headaches and neck pain. Restrictions else where in the body, like the organs (viscera), can cause problems elsewhere in the body – like your neck. Whenever we walk, breathe, or stretch, our organs move. Our internal structures are wrapped in a connective tissue called “fascia” and this fascia needs to move correctly. If the tissue surrounding an organ is injured or not moving correctly – during sports, by a collision or fall, by disease, or by the post-operative effects of surgery – it can restrict or change the organ’s regular pattern of movement.

Migraines

Sometimes the most common types of headaches, especially for women. Migraines can be from hormonal, environmental, and emotional triggers. Stress, depression, anxiety, and food can have a role in migraines as well. Massage therapy can help reduce your muscle tension in your neck but nutrition will be your best solution in the long-term recovery. Studies show it’s important for to put more emphasis on the significance of correcting dietary patterns in order to prevent headache attacks and reduce the complications arising from drug consumption in migraine patients

Sync Therapy is the best athletic therapy that I have ever experienced. It takes a wholistic 360 approach. Daryl is not only a great therapist but an excellent teacher. Each session teaches me something new in how to build a healthier lifestyle. Highly recommend.
