Physical and mental fatigue, stress, and strain can be common experiences in the workplace, leading to decreased productivity and poor decision-making. At our physical therapy clinics, we offer a unique approach to headache therapy that can help you feel better, work more effectively, and prevent future headaches.
How Physical Therapy Can Help
A comprehensive range of tools and techniques to effectively treat headaches, including:
- Therapeutic adjustments: Our experienced therapists use manual adjustments to restore proper alignment to the spine and alleviate tension in the neck and shoulders.
- Joint mobilizations: By applying gentle, controlled movements to your joints, we can help improve your range of motion, decrease pain, and reduce muscle tension.
- Soft tissue manipulation: Our skilled therapists use hands-on techniques to manipulate soft tissues, such as muscles and tendons, to reduce tension and pain.
- Dry needling: We can help alleviate muscle pain and spasms and promote healing by inserting thin, sterile needles into specific trigger points.
- Massage: Our specialized massage techniques can help alleviate tension and stiffness in the head, neck, and shoulders, which can reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches.
- Cold lasers: We use low-level laser therapy to stimulate cell regeneration and reduce inflammation, promoting healing and reducing pain.
- Electrical stimulation: By applying a small electrical current to specific muscles, we can help alleviate tension, reduce pain, and promote healing.
