Headache treatment

Many headache sufferers have already utilized various relief measures and treatments, such as heat and ice, and use them at home.  The most effective treatment for the chronic headache patient is to find the underlying structural cause or contributor to their illness and focus treatment on this area.  When a physical therapist can get at the root of a problem, such as poor mobility in a joint or muscle spasm or postural dysfunction, and address that problem, the results can be longer lasting.  The patient may need to perform a few exercises in order to maintain the improvement.

Pain decreases and life becomes easier.  Daily activities are not so difficult. Range of motion is restored.  Physical activity and exercise can be resumed without increasing pain.  However, the most successful result is when a patient feels that success has been achieved and established goals have been met.  The initial PT evaluation becomes a part of the overall multidisciplinary approach utilized by the patient’s treatment team.

The initial evaluation, assessment, and treatment recommendation are then forwarded to physical therapist. Preferably, the patient is seen back at physical therapist to assess their progress and to provide further recommendations after they have been in physical therapy for a while. If your headaches are being caused by muscle tension, physical therapy may be prescribed to address specific muscular issues. Treatment protocols vary, but expect regular treatments for a few weeks at a time, with adjustments made depending upon your improvement.

Lifestyle Changes
Since stress and other issues in our daily lives trigger headaches, learning to manage these issues is an effective strategy in treating headaches. Learning to relax and relieve stress is an important first step. Many things can help, but learning to take time for yourself is one of the best things you can do to relieve stress. Exercise will not only help reduce stress, but exercise also causes endorphin release, and endorphins are your body’s natural pain killers. Finding food and drinks that trigger headaches, and then learning to avoid those, definitely help reduce the number of headaches you experience. Tyramine is an amino acid present in many rich foods that is a known cause of headaches. Trying to follow a low-tyramine diet may be beneficial.
