Headaches
Physical Therapy

NO MEDICATION. NO PAINFUL INJECTIONS.

Physical therapy may not be your first thought when you consider headache treatments, but it can be the most effective treatment for chronic conditions. Consistent headaches are most likely caused by issues somewhere else in the body. Our expert team of doctors can help you identify where your issues are created, so we can solve the root cause of your headaches.

Our Treatment Method

How We Treat Headaches

Headache pain can typically be relieved with traditional pain medicine, but this is always just a temporary solution. Our goal is to find the source of your headache pain and work with you to alleviate it entirely. We know the right questions to ask to find out the root cause of your pain and get you feeling great again.

Every visit at our clinic will be entirely one-on-one with one of our certified Doctors of Physical Therapy. You always get expert treatment and care throughout the entire session. After your evaluation, we determine the actual cause of your headaches and establish a treatment plan to reduce or completely remove the pain. This is typically done through strengthening of vital, misunderstood muscles and rounding out your body’s functions. We never use medication or painful shots to treat your pain.

MANUAL THERAPY

How We Achieve A Better Diagnosis with Less Discomfort

 

What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is a method of physical therapy that involves the therapist feeling exactly how your body reacts to specific movements and exercises. A lot of pain and discomfort comes from a lack of mobility or a small range of motion. Through simple movements and exercises, we’re able to get your body used to these motions again, reducing or completely removing your pain.

Manual therapy includes a detailed biomechanical assessment. This means that your therapist will watch and feel how you move in order to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. This leads to faster recovery times and improved outcomes.
