Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy, and Chiropractic treatments for Migraine and Tension Headaches.

Treatment for headaches is a combination of physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic treatments. We combine the best of all disciplines to treat your headaches.

Most people are aware repetitive activities, physical habits, poor posture, and stress contribute to chronic muscle spasms in the cervical spine; which can aggravate cervicogenic headaches.

Standard headache treatment of electric therapy, ultrasound, and passive stretching is slow to reduce spasms and scar tissue.

A combination of modalities, manual therapy, massage therapy, Graston/ASTYM, provider performed stretching, and exercises decrease the muscle spasms and improve range of motion faster than traditional treatment protocols.

Graston Technique is incredible at increasing range of motion, removing scar tissue in muscles and ligaments, and relaxing tight muscles. We combine Graston Technique with traditional physical therapy exercises and stretches to speed healing and recovery from injuries.

The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

For example, some people seek treatment for their headaches, neck pain, and sore knots in their muscles that never go away. These knots are fascial restrictions and scar tissue that may be contributing to their headaches. Using Graston Technique on these areas helps the muscles and can improve the headaches and neck pain.

We are one of the few chiropractic or physical therapy offices certified in the Graston Technique.
