Headaches can commonly be caused or worsened by muscular tension in the neck or upper back. Therefore, osteopathic treatment that reduces muscle tension can often be very helpful in relieving them.

Located in Prestwood, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, and serving areas like Hazlemere / Penn / Tylers Green, Amersham, Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross, Little Chalfont, Chalfont St. Giles, Kingshill and High Wycombe, our osteopathy clinic has a great reputation for getting people better quickly through personalised osteopathic care.

If you are suffering from headaches, we may be able to help you in our optimally COVID-safe, private clinic. For appointments and more information, call reception on 01494 813700 or email us at breakspearclinic@osteopilates.co.uk.
