Headache Physical Therapy
Everyone has once experienced a sudden pain, probably when at work, shopping, spending time with friends, or probably when idle. But are you aware that roughly 30% of people living in Canada usually endure occasional or frequent headaches? In the world, headache is regarded as the third most commonly reported source of pain at the doctor’s office.
Often, most people who suffer from headaches usually opt for pain-relieving medication to eradicate them. For an average individual, using orthopedic, sports physiotherapy, or massage therapy might not even be an option for relieving headaches. But it is very effective for it especially if it is a chronic headache.
However, using a pain-relieving medication can only be effective for a shorter term. But in situations such as migraine or constant headaches, using these prescribed drugs might not be effective in the long term, like orthopedic, sports physiotherapy, and massage therapy treatment.
Most times, headaches are caused by neck-related- problems referred to as carcinogenic. When you are experiencing a lot of stress, weakness, strain, and injury in your neck muscles and joints, it will develop pain that affects the scalp, forehead, and side of your head.
If you are suffering from any degree of headaches, we urge you to contact Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic to Book An Appointment with one of our orthopedists, sports physiotherapists, and massage therapists.
Types of headaches and migraines
Different factors can cause various types of headaches. The three most common types are;
Cervivogenic headaches are caused by neck-related problems and affect the three vertebrates at the top of the neck. It occurs as a result of concussion of arthritis and work-related strain. If your job requires a constant upright position when sitting or standing, there are high chances of having cervicogenic headaches.
Tension headache is the most common type. It is caused due to prolonged posture or repetitive motions in the head/neck. When the sensitive membrane around the brain (known as dura mater) is strained, tension headache occurs. The dura mater is located very close to a small muscle at your skull’s base that links to the spasm. Any slight strain at the dura mater, pain is transmitted to the brain, resulting in headaches.
This usually happens when there is lots of tension in the neck as a result of physical imbalance, damage, weakness, and in some cases, stress. Neck injuries like whiplash are a common contributing cause of musculoskeletal headaches. When you suffer from a traumatic injury at your neck, the connective tissues and muscles become strained, which influences pain to the head and other body parts.
