Headaches

Advanced treatment for headaches

Tens of millions of Americans suffer from headaches. Headaches may be mildly annoying (tension or sinus) or completely debilitating (migraine headaches, cluster headaches).

Over 33 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches. Cluster-type headaches, also known as one-sided and “suicide” headaches, are relatively rare by comparison. Tension headaches, by far the most common type, can last 15 minutes or days on end. Common causes of headaches include:

  • Alcohol, caffeine or other drug use or withdrawal
  • Changes in the levels of chemicals in the body (neurotransmitters)
  • Coughing, sneezing or dehydration
  • Dental problems or procedures, such as pain from grinding the teeth or from a root canal
  • Eating cold foods or drinking cold fluids
  • Emotional stress
  • Exposure to smoke or fumes from chemicals, including carbon monoxide
  • Eyestrain, fever, high altitude (lower oxygen levels at high altitudes can cause headaches)
  • Medical procedures, or the aftereffects of a lumbar puncture (spinal tap)
  • Medications
  • Muscle strain in the neck, upper back or shoulder muscles
  • Upper respiratory infections

While there is no single treatment that eliminates every headache, all are treatable. Symptoms and pain can often be reduced with manual physical therapy techniques and over the counter medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen.

We also emphasize patient education. The more you know and understand about your body and what causes your headaches, the better able you are to participate in the physical therapy process for better, longer-lasting results.
