When a headache strikes, most people cite stress, dehydration or allergies as the cause of their pain. What they don’t realize is that a muscle spasm, a stiff joint, bad posture or more may be the cause of their chronic headaches. Our physical therapists will identify the source of the pain and work to alleviate it through manual therapy and prescribed exercises. They work one-on-one with patients to treat and educate them for lifelong relief. Below are several causes of chronic headaches that physical therapy can help to relieve.
- Neck problems
- Jaw problems
- Overworked muscles
- Poor posture
Why Physical Therapy For Headaches?
