Treatment for Headaches

Have a headache??


Suffering from a headache?

Suffering from a headache?

Headaches are one of the most common human ailments. They can range in severity from mildly annoying to completely debilitating. Headache is defined as pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. It can be a symptom of a number of different conditions of the head and neck.

Why come to Olympic Sports & Spine Rehabilitation for headache treatment?

Our skilled therapists will assess the origin of your headache and develop a treatment plan to help relieve your headache pain.  Migraine and tension headaches are often successfully treated by our therapists.  

How are headaches treated?

Once your therapist has determined the source and type of your headache various treatment techniques may be used.   These may include soft tissue and joint mobilization, massage, fascial release and detailed exercise instruction. Treatments will include postural training to help prevent the onset of headaches.  Possible headache causes will be addressed. In addition, therapeutic modalities can be used if necessary. You will be taught a series of upper-back and neck exercises to strengthen your muscles in order to help prevent future headaches.
