What is headache rehabilitation?
Most types of headaches have an effective treatment. The most common types of headaches in adults are tension-type and cervicogenic headaches and may be the result of a neck or jaw problem, poor posture, fatigue, stress or whiplash syndrome. Cervicogenic headaches are headaches that mimic migraine symptoms but have a defined origin in the cervical spine (neck). A physical therapist who is a headache rehabilitation specialist will work with you to determine the type of headache you have, its cause and develop a treatment plan intended to address frequency and intensity. Your treatment may include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and education on posture and proper ergonomics.
