Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy, and Chiropractic treatments for Migraine and Tension Headaches.
for headaches is a combination of physical therapy, massage
therapy, and chiropractic treatments. We combine the best
of all disciplines to treat your headaches.
Most people are aware repetitive activities, physical habits,
poor posture, and stress contribute to chronic muscle spasms
in the cervical spine; which can aggravate cervicogenic headaches.
Standard headache treatment of electric therapy, ultrasound,
and passive stretching is slow to reduce spasms and scar tissue.
A combination of modalities, manual therapy, massage therapy,
Graston/ASTYM, provider performed stretching, and exercises
decrease the muscle spasms and improve range of motion faster
than traditional treatment protocols.
Graston Technique is incredible at increasing
range of motion, removing scar tissue in muscles and ligaments,
and relaxing tight muscles. We combine Graston Technique with
traditional physical therapy exercises and stretches to speed
healing and recovery from injuries.
The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel
instruments to detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting
soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
For example, some people seek treatment for their headaches,
neck pain, and sore knots in their muscles that never go away.
These knots are fascial restrictions and scar tissue that
may be contributing to their headaches. Using Graston Technique
on these areas helps the muscles and can improve the headaches
and neck pain.
We are one of the few chiropractic or physical therapy offices
certified in the Graston Technique.
