Can Physical Therapy Help with My Headaches?

Did you know that physical therapy can help with your chronic headaches? Our Advance At Home Physical Therapy team takes great pride in helping countless patients just like you find relief through at home physical therapy in Nassau County.

Treating Your Headaches with Physical therapy

Headaches can arise out of a wide variety of circumstances, some of the most common being:

  • Trauma as the result of a previous injury
  • A pre-existing medical condition
  • Dietary concerns
  • Stress

Given all of those possibilities, one of the most important reasons to seek out at home physical therapy in Nassau County is to get connected with a physical therapist, and get one step closer to an accurate diagnosis.

Our physical therapists can help diagnose the cause of your chronic headaches in the following ways:

  • By recording a comprehensive medical history to better understand your symptoms
  • By measuring the range of motion in your neck, back, and shoulders through manual manipulation
  • And, by evaluating the strength of your posture while sitting and standing

Further consultation by a more specialized medical professional, most likely a neurologist, may be required after the initial examination has been completed, but our physical therapist will then be able to devise a treatment plan that will likely include all of the following:

  • Massage therapy to loosen up the joints in key areas of your neck, back, and shoulders
  • Muscle-strengthening exercises, such as head nods and shoulder blade squeezes
  • Stretching to improve joint flexibility
  • Running to improve your overall endurance
