Tension Headaches


Are you suffering from LOCKDOWN COVID19 effects sitting more with less exercise, stress with poor quality rest?
We encourage our patients with Tension Headaches to “plot” their starting pattern

This informs us how they are progressing as well as what factors might influence their problem. Some of our patients present the a complex mix of symptoms that may have worsened during COVID19 and are looking for a new way of managing their pain
