Those who suffer migraine headaches know they can be debilitating. Intense pulsing or throbbing in the head is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound which can last for hours or even days.
While medication can help combat the frequency and severity of migraines, physical therapy can also be an enormous asset. In fact, it was proven to reduce migraine severity by 51 percent in a recent American study. Because everyone’s experiences with migraines are different, there’s no singular solution to treating them. For that reason, we’ll work with you to deduce which therapies – including manual therapy of the jaw, neck, shoulders and spine or sometimes even thoracic, lumbar, pelvis or leg tension or tightness – will best help ease your specific migraine pain and lessen future occurrences.
