Physical Therapy to Treat Headaches


In the US over 37 million people suffer from migraines or chronic headaches. For many, headaches can be disabling, with chronic headache suffers being three times more likely to suffer depression as well. There is a treatment beyond medications that has been proven to help decrease the occurrence of headaches–physical therapy. Unfortunately most headache suffers have never been told about this possibility. Physical therapy including exercise, relaxation techniques and posture retraining have been shown to be as effective as many medications in decreasing the frequency of headaches.
