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), they can all be treated by physical therapy for headache relief.

Physical therapy is not often the first thought that comes to mind when someone is suffering from a headache – 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. The physical therapist will help you diagnose what is causing your headache and provide an effective, safe, and natural treatment plan for eliminating them!

All Headaches are painful but did you know that there are three main types of headaches? They include: tension headaches, musculoskeletal headaches and cervicogenic headaches. While tension headaches are the result of repetitive stress, musculoskeletal headaches are associated with whiplash injuries and stress can be a contributing factor. Cervicogenic headaches are also related to neck pain, involving the top three vertebrae of the neck. These headaches can develop as a result of certain conditions, such as a concussion or arthritis, but work-related strain can also trigger a cervicogenic headache. Professions that require a down-turned motion of the head or neck are the most prone for developing cervicogenic headaches. This may include hairdressers, long-haul drivers, chefs, nail artists, jewelers, etc.
