Did you know chronic migraine and tension headaches can be treated conservatively with physical therapy?
Treatment with manual therapies, modalities, postural retraining, and education in proper body mechanics can decrease frequency and intensity of headaches and decrease the amount of medication needed to manage them.
Why Physical Therapy first?
- Decreased time spent obtaining referrals to specialists and sitting in medical offices
- Physical therapists do not need expensive diagnostics prior to assessing and treating your problems
- Faster treatment and relief –in most cases we can get a patient seen within two business days
- Physical therapists are trained to help you identify in a timely manner if physical therapy is not best route for you, and will advise you accordingly
What happens at your initial appointment?
At the Cantrell Center, a physical therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation based on your chief complaints and medical history. They will determine the best treatment methods to address your issues and include you in developing appropriate treatment plan and goals.
We believe that educating our patients effectively is a crucial part of the care they receive. Your therapist will spend the time to help you understand your problem from a physical therapy perspective.
