Quick and Effective Release from Headaches
If you suffer from persistent and recurrent headaches physical therapy can help you
Cervicogenic headaches or as they are more commonly known, tension headaches can be the source of persistent pain in the neck, head and face. This pain often originates from the joints and soft tissue structures of the neck. These headaches can have a massive impact on quality of life as they often leave people unable to perform at work or enjoy time with friends and family. We often see people who have visited their GP or even consultants and neurologists, have been prescribed painkillers and even had MRI’s and CT scans with limited success. Although pain killers can help temporarily, they are not a long-term solution for recurrent headaches as they do not treat the root cause of your headaches.
Some familiar symptoms may include:
- Headaches that get worse as the day goes on
- Posterior head and neck pain that can radiate to the forehead, temples and eyes
- Pain that increases in severity and/or frequency during busy and stressful periods of your life
- Tension and/or pain in the shoulders and neck
- Persistent pain after injury or trauma that involved rapid and awkward movement of the neck or compression of the head/neck
