Could something as simple as stretchy tape, applied to the back of the neck, really be an effective treatment for severe headaches? According to the 2,000 or so British osteopaths advocating the technique, known as Kinesio taping, the answer is a resounding yes.

Elasticated tape has been used for decades to provide joint support to injured athletes, including David Beckham, who is often seen sporting the brightly coloured tape. Now experts believe using these adhesive support products can also reduce head pain – by repositioning muscles under stress and so relieving tension in the neck.

According to Headache UK, more than ten million Britons suffer from head pain. Migraine, the most severe headache, will affect about 25 per cent of women and up to 15 per cent of men.

I wouldn't be surprised if this worked. When I go walking, I like to wear a backpack with a little bit of weight in it (waterproof coat, first aid kit, small bottle of water). This helps with my posture, keeping my shoulders from slumping forwards and keeping my head upright. I suppose the tape would have much the same effect but without the extra weight. Definitely worth a try!

I have not tried this as I have my doubts like you - but I have had contact from a lady in South Africa who is using a similar tape and it has helped with the lower grade ones....
