Headache Relief Program

Welcome to our Headache Relief Program.

Sound familiar?

  • I have a dull headache every day.
  • My headaches are stronger in the afternoon.
  • I notice my neck tension is related to my headaches.
  • My head feels better if I can just lie down during the day.
  • I have to stretch my neck constantly.
  • I get chiropractic adjustments but relief does not last.
If these are familiar to you, then your neck is definitely a part of why you are having headaches. The good news? You’re not alone!  Headaches are a challenging diagnosis, but you can make a huge improvement in your quality of life with our headache relief program!

The most informative Neck Health Exam that contributes to your personalized therapy plan.

There are three phases of our Headache Program Exam: Movement Control Testing, Cervical Proprioception Testing and Hands-on Assessment. This exam is done in a private room with you and your therapist. The Exam identifies pain generators, muscle imbalances, and dysfunction in neck alignment. This provides us with your overall neck health performance to uncover the underlying “why”.

Spinal Alignment

Our daily lives cause forward head posture escalating headaches and neck tension. This can lead to a straight cervical spine, which interferes with erect and proper posture.  We exam your alignment to start a treatment plan to fix it.

Cervical Proprioception

Proprioception is a crucial aspect of our sensory system that helps us maintain coordination, and spatial awareness of our neck while we are upright all day long.  We can detect dysfunction in proprioception to enhance movement control, reduce pain and take away headaches.

Muscle Imbalances

We commonly find muscle imbalances in our exam, which explains the “tug of war” that your neck goes through all day long!  Finding these deviations is necessary to allow for smooth and coordinated movement to promote neck health.
