On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.
The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.
The early plan is designed to normalise soft tissue tone and flexibility in the neck and upper back – all of which can contribute to symptoms with built-up tension. In the intermediate programme, stretches for different areas of the neck and upper back are introduced alongside self-massage which can help to manage and improve your symptoms. Lastly, the advanced plan aims to strengthen the muscles of the neck and upper back to develop resilience for managing with activities of daily life.

Please click here to be re-directed to our YouTube channel playlist for video demonstrations of each exercise recommended for headaches. Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
