Headaches aren’t a lack of ibuprofen or paracetamol.

Well of course you probably know that, but for a lot of people that’s the only thing that can help take the edge off them and help you get through your day.


Some headaches are easy to diagnose and cure. If you’ve had a heavy night out and have become dehydrated…the cause is the booze, the cure is water. If it were only that simple for every headache though….


Most headaches are the result of some sort of pressure or tension. Certain tissues (the type that aren’t muscles so cant relax or tense), will get pulled abnormally from the neck or shoulders. Then comes the tug of war. The tissue often wraps over the top of the head and into the forehead, and when it is being pulled, that’s where you feel the pain

Correcting the underlying problem is the key.


Once corrected then we need to put in place measures to make sure that any headaches won’t come back again to ruin your life.


If this is something you truly want, then click on the button below to book in for your discounted assessment to see if there is a mechanical problem in the shoulders or neck that we can help you get better.

When I first came to this Clinic l was in so much pain l couldn't straight on my back, was on a cocktail of pain killers, l thought this was what my life was going to be like. l saw John who said he could help me and weeks down the road l am able to stand up straight walk without any pain and the plus side l have managed to reduce my painkillers by more than half, and l am so happy. John is a really lovely man, he is very honest with you, l couldn't recommend him enough. The staff are all very nice and helpful.

I first went to shield clinic with a frozen shoulder and lower back pain. The frozen shoulder stopped me swimming, doing yoga and also normal activities like decorating. At 53 I had started to accept that nothing could be done, but after 2 visits to John my shoulder freed up and after 12 sessions my shoulder was back to normal with total movement and no pain, and my lower back pain was gone. I now visit once a month or so but I’ve got my old life back. I can’t thank John enough!
