Headache Therapy

About

Headache pain can range from mild to debilitating and can result from a number of problems. Determining the underlying cause is key to finding the most effective relief. The physical therapists at Faith Regional are highly skilled at determining if headaches are being generated from mechanical problems in the neck that are effectively treated with specific, yet simple exercise.
Even if you have had physical therapy in the past for headaches, you may find relief from the method utilized by Faith Regional’s physical therapists.

  • Evidence-based method to sort out underlying cause
  • Exercise-based—no drugs/extensive radiographic testing or surgery
  • Gives the patient control of his or her own symptom management
  • Treatment is easy to apply at work or home

The McKenzie Method
MDT is a valuable system of evaluation utilized by the outpatient physical therapists at Faith Regional to treat back, neck, headache and extremity pain.
Most musculoskeletal pain is caused by a position, movement or activity. If a mechanical force caused the pain, it makes sense that mechanical force may help alleviate the underlying cause of the pain.
The MDT therapists systematically identify the underlying problem that causes pain and then develop a specific plan to correct or improve the mechanics, which results in decreasing or eliminating pain. The system emphasizes self-treatment and empowers the patient to treat his/her problem and prevent recurrences.
Where other therapy has failed, MDT is often successful. Faith Regional’s scheduling of one patient with one therapist for the entire therapy session provides you with the most skilled therapy available in the area.
