Head and Neck Physical Therapy
Treatment for Headaches and Neck Pain
Unfortunately, head and neck pain is incredibly common. In fact, most adults will suffer from headaches or neck pain at some point in life. Pain can range from a temporary annoyance to truly debilitating pain. Fortunately, physical therapists can treat a wide range of conditions and disorders related to the head, neck, and face so you can continue living pain-free.
Sometimes, it’s easy to determine a direct cause for your pain, such as trauma. Other times, there is no clear cause. Regardless of the root cause, even minor periodic headaches or neck pain can be signs of something more serious. If your symptoms include pain, numbness, tingling, and/or burning sensations in your head, jaw, neck, or radiating down your arms, it’s time for professional intervention.

Did You Know?
Our necks are exposed to a lot of stress every day. One of the most common causes of neck pain is muscle strain or tension – and everyday activities are usually the culprit. Being bent over a desk all day, having poor posture while reading or watching TV, or sleeping in an awkward position can all cause neck pain. Other causes may include a cervical herniated
disk, arthritis, and meningitis.
