Chandler Headache Treatment

Physical Therapy Treatment Headaches and Chiropractic Headaches

Have you ever been working at the computer for long hours and started to feel tightness in the neck that eventually led to a headache? Are your headaches worse with working on the computer or with your head down? If so, your headaches could be a tension or migraine headache, and have a cervicogenic aspect to them.

A tension headache may cause you to experience a dull, achy pain or sensation of tightness in your forehead. It may wrap from around the back to the front of your head. Many people liken the feeling to having a tight band of pressure encircling their heads, like a head band. The severity of the pain varies from a constant dull ache to a severe pain. Many headaches occur during times of heightened stress and anxiety.

Have you ever been working at the computer for long hours and started to feel tightness in the neck that eventually led to a headache? Are your headaches worse with working on the computer or with your head down? If so, your headaches could be a tension or migraine headache, and have a cervicogenic aspect to them.

A tension headache may cause you to experience a dull, achy pain or sensation of tightness in your forehead. It may wrap from around the back to the front of your head. Many people liken the feeling to having a tight band of pressure encircling their heads, like a head band. The severity of the pain varies from a constant dull ache to a severe pain. Many headaches occur during times of heightened stress and anxiety.

Migraines are a severe type of headache that commonly involve a pounding or throbbing pain. It can occur on only one side of the head, and is usually consistently on that side. Some people are sensitive to light and may experience nausea or vomiting. A migraine forces many people to seek a dark room and sleep.

Headaches can be caused or aggravated by physical stress to the neck. Muscles spasms put stress on the neck joints by jamming them together, which signals pain to the body. This cycle of muscle spasms and joint stress produces a cascade of events that lead to some headaches. Over time, the spasms can become chronic and cause multiple headaches in a month or week.

Treatment that reduces the muscles spasms and joint stress will decrease the frequency, intensity, and duration of headaches.

Our clinic specializes in decreasing the muscle spasms that cause headaches. We combine physical therapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy in our office to treat your headaches.

Physical therapy decreases the muscle spasms and strengthens the muscles. Stretching improves the flexibility and range of motion of neck muscles. Chiropractic helps by decreasing the pressure on the nerves in the neck that trigger headaches. We accomplish this by adjusting "stiff" joints that have been "jammed together" to improve joint motion and decrease joint pain. We combine this treatment with massage therapy and Graston Technique to further relax muscles and remove chronic muscle spasms.

Migraine and Tension Headache TreatmentsGraston Technique breaks muscle adhesions that prevent flexibility. Muscle adhesions or scar tissue is often the "knots" people feel in their neck and shoulders. Graston Treatment has helped many headache suffers.

Tension and Migraine headaches with a cervicogenic component can be treated with proper therapy and a combination of treatments. If you have further questions or would like to find out how this therapy could improve your headaches please call (480) 812-1800.
