Headaches & Migraines

There is hope for people with migraine and headache pain. Get relief from pain and live your best life! Let us help you find out what is causing your headaches and develop an effective personalized treatment plan that works for you. The majority of our patients see a decrease in the intensity and frequency of headaches after physiotherapy.


Join the hundreds of headache and migraine sufferers that we’ve helped to take control, get relief and stop relying on medication to get them through the day! Medication isn’t a long-term solution and it’s only masking the cause of your headaches.  We understand the burden headaches can be on your life and we can help.

Physiotherapy can serve to eliminate, or reduce the frequency of your head pain through manual techniques and exercise focussing on the neck and upper back . We can also give you the information you require to help relieve the impact headaches are having on you and your lifestyle, hobbies, friends and family.

How can Physiotherapy help headaches and migraines?

Our headache treatments are unrivaled in the Physiotherapy world for their investigative accuracy and results. At Thrive Physio Plus we have clinicians trained in the Watson Headache Approach, and can help determine if disorders in the upper neck are responsible for headache or migraine and determine the exact nature of the problem as well as which spinal joints are involved. There is no guesswork and no cracking or manipulation. Its unique and powerful feature involves temporary reproduction and resolution (easing) of usual head pain. For further information, go to:

Outside of hands-on therapy to provide short term relief, addressing stiff or weak neck and upper backs is a key component in getting a great long term outcome. The stronger and more mobile your upper back, the less force your neck has to withstand and the less likely you’ll experience head pain.

Some clients will have a stiff back, but good strength. Others will have good mobility, but poor strength and endurance. Some even have both, whilst others have neither! With chronic headache sufferers, we endeavour to have both. If we can give a client adequate mobility, and a high level of postural and upper back strength – we’re likely to get the best outcome possible!

Stop relying on medication and start living an unburdened life.
