Suffering From Headaches? Here’s How PT Can Help…

How common are headaches?

  • 2 in 3 adults will experience neck pain
  • Neck pain can contribute to increased intensity of headaches or be the direct cause of headaches
  • Tension type headaches occur in between 30-78% of people
  • Cervicogenic headache (directly caused by muscles of the neck) affect 20% of people
  • Migraines affect 14.7% of people

If you are suffering how can you get relief?

The first line of treatment is usually medication but for most people this does not treat the source of the pain. Neck pain, stress, poor posture, and a number of other factors can contribute to head ache frequency and intensity.

Physical therapists specialize in the treatment of the physical contributions that lead to headaches including:

  • Neck pain
  • Tension in muscles of the neck
  • Poor posture
  • Lack of exercise due to pain
