Headaches

There are three main types of headache

If you suffer from headaches you’ll know the impact of an attack on your work, family life or social activities. There are many different types of headache but most fall under one of the following three categories:

  • Headache triggered by a problem in your neck (cervicogenic)
  • Tension headache
  • Migraine
