Neck & tension headaches


Tension headaches are a extremely common affliction. There are multiple causes for headaches; dehydration, eye straining, vascular irregularities, high blood pressure, stress and many more besides. If you suffer with regular headaches it is important to speak to a professional to identify and treat the underlying cause.

From a musculoskeletal point of view, the suboccipital muscles which attach from the back of the skull to the top of the neck, and blend with the fascia around the skull are often a major source of headaches. The central prongs of the manta roller are perfectly designed to target these muscles, replicating the hands on treatment you would get from an osteopath or physio. 

Loosening these muscles can help ease headaches and reduce tension in the upper neck.
