I have been suffering from headaches and neck pain for about a year. To my surprise and relief, I am now waking up in the morning without a headache.
If you suffer from headaches, you are not alone. Approximately 80-90% of people across the U.S. endure occasional or frequent tension headaches. They are also the third most commonly reported source of pain across the world! Whether they are acute and temporary or constant and chronic (such as migraines), headaches can all be treated by physical therapy.
You may not think of physical therapy as your first remedy for headaches. Most of the time, the common reaction is to take some form of pain-relieving medication. This may help to relieve pain in the short-term, but if you are constantly suffering from headaches or migraines, pain relief drugs will not provide you with the same long-term effects that physical therapy will. If you’ve been dealing with pain caused by headaches, contact Grelot Physical Therapy today. We will help you figure out what is causing your headaches and provide an effective, safe, and natural treatment plan for eliminating them!
We can help
Tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches, musculoskeletal headaches, occipital and temporal headaches often respond really well to physical therapy. They are typically the results of injuries, poor posture or tension to the neck, shoulder blade muscles or even the jaw muscles. Muscle imbalances with some muscles being too tight and other muscles too weak or with poor endurance will cause undue stress on the system. Trigger points will develop, referring pain to the head.
You might say “it’s just a muscle”, but pain in this area can be excruciating and terribly debilitating.
