Hands On… It’s What We Do.

Headache/Jaw Facial Pain

Physical therapy isn’t normally someone’s first thought when they have 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.

Many headaches can be classified as cervicogenic headaches, meaning they originate from the cervical spine, and can be treated with physical therapy. Poor posture, stress, and other factors can contribute to weakness, strain, and injury to the neck muscles and joints. This pain radiates up into the scalp, side of the head, and even the forehead, depending on the area of the neck involved.

Approximately 80-90% of people across the U.S. endure occasional or frequent headaches. Whether they are acute or constant, intermittent or constant, headaches can be treated with physical therapy. Request your appointment today!
