Do I need PT for headaches / migraines?
Headaches take many forms. They may be isolated to a certain location, occur on one or both sides of the head, radiate across your forehead, or even feel like a vise putting pressure on your skull. Some headaches develop gradually, some suddenly. Headaches can come and go in less than an hour, while others linger for several days. Migraines are a specific type of headache that often cause unbearable pain. They may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for hours to days and can be so severe that the pain is disabling.
We’re here to help you manage your headaches and help you get to the root of your problem. Our team utilizes a personalized, hands-on approach to diagnosing, treating, and preventing headaches and migraines.
