Headaches can be classified into different types including cluster, tension-type, cranial neuralgia, facial pain, and migraine. Cluster and tension-type headaches are treated by decreasing the painful trigger points in the head, neck, and postural muscles, improving the mobility of the vertebrae and soft tissue in your neck and upper back, strengthening your postural muscles, and increasing your flexibility.
“Sitting is the new smoking” means that Americans frequently spend increased hours staring at computers or mobile devices with devastating effects on their overall health and quality of life. Prolonged sitting contributes to forward head posture and therefore, poor blood flow to our postural musculature. The combination of manual therapy techniques and specific exercise to improve posture and endurance of the postural muscle systems, can decrease the pressure on the joints, muscles and nerves that cause headaches.
