Drysdale Osteopathy • Tension Headaches
Patient: Woman 49 Years
Occupation: University Administrator
Pain: Constant 4/10
Complaint: Constant, ongoing Tension Type Headache which is present day and night. This headache eases with analgesics, but never clears. Onset, 3 weeks. Stress at work and poor posture are the major cause.
Treatment: Treatment was gentle Massage and Cranio-Sacral Therapy. The back and front of the neck, back of the head, jaw & facial muscles were all treated.
There was a lot of dialog. The patient was able, confidentially, to speak about what was causing her unhappiness and frustration.
After 2 treatments her Headache was gone, but there was a lot of muscle tension remaining, which required another 4 treatments at weekly intervals.
This patient comes for treatment every month or two, to keep things at bay.
