A few therapies we use for chronic headache treatment in Rockford

Headaches are caused by several underlying issues, and if these issues aren’t treated, you could be facing headaches that come back again and again. However, our Advent Physical Therapy team can help you find the underlying cause of your headaches. We can also help you get the chronic headache treatment you need.

Most of us have experienced a tension headache at some point in our lives. However, not everyone is aware that tension headaches are often the result of neck issues. The neck and head are connected by a group of eight nerves called the cervical plexus. These nerves branch off the spinal column and run into the head and neck, and they’re also the reason neck issues can cause headaches. For example, poor neck posture at work can lead to tension in the neck muscles that sends pain signals from your neck into your head.

While most tension headaches go away fairly quickly, they may also become more frequent. This is especially likely if the underlying neck issue causing the headaches isn’t treated. In fact, over long periods of time, headaches can go from being a once-in-a-while nuisance to a chronic problem.

Fortunately, Advent Physical Therapy can help you treat chronic headaches with therapy plans that include therapies such as:

  • Massage therapy
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Targeted stretches
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Electrical stimulation
