While many headaches are harmless and resolve over time, more frequent and severe migraines can impact your quality of life. When headaches or migraines affect your ability to perform daily activities, it may be time to see a physical therapist who can provide several effective treatments.
Physical therapists can decrease the intensity and frequency of headaches and migraines, making you less dependent on medication. In addition, after seeing a physical therapist, your function and mobility will improve and your quality of life. At Rainey Pain & Performance, we use a variety of treatment methods to ease headache pain. The most common treatment methods we use include:
Neck manipulation- often, people associate this with chiropractors, but we too can perform manipulations as physical therapists with additional specialized training.
Deep neck flexor training- there are small muscles just in front of the top of the cervical spine that often need help to function properly. So let us help you train those small muscles.
Dry needling- small acupuncture needles are inserted in muscles around the head, neck, or face, drastically reducing tension and pain.
Let us help you reduce your headaches or migraines that are debilitating your life or maybe are just frustrating and annoying. Schedule your appointment today! 520-459-1386
