Let’s Talk Headaches

Headaches are a very common medical complaint and may stem from a variety of causes such as joints, muscles, blood flow and nerves. A headache can last a few hours, to a few days, or even become a chronic condition that lasts 15 or more days per month for a prolonged period of time. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that, “3/4 of adults aged 18-65 will have a headache in a year and 30% or more report having a migraine.” Often headaches go underestimated or under-treated.

Facts & Symptoms

  • Headaches can be categorized as primary or secondary and their causes and symptoms can vary based on the type you experience.
  • Headaches can last a few hours or can become a chronic condition.
  • Treating with only pain medication can turn into rebound headaches leaving you dependent on the pain medication.
  • Headaches can be caused by other physical issues such as poor posture, neck pain, upper back pain.
  • Headaches can be caused by stress and anxiety.
  • Headaches can be caused by Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).

Cause & Treatment

Effective treatment of headache pain varies on diagnosis of the headache type. A physical examination by a Venture Rehab university trained physical therapist can determine the underlying cause and our therapists will work as a team to design a tailored treatment plan that can include but is not limited to:

  • Modality treatments
  • Stretching of tight neck and upper back muscles
  • Physiotherapy exercises to strengthen weak upper back and neck muscles (providing better posture control)
  • Stress relief exercises
  • Dry Needling
  • Lifestyle Modification
  • Exercises to perform at home
