Myotherapy For Headaches
The percentage of people suffering from “headache disorders” is on the rise these days, thanks to our labor-intensive and sedentary working culture. According to a survey conducted by the WHO, tension-type headaches and migraines are among the most prevalent disorders of mankind. A pain-killer or some rest is often all you need to take care of minor headaches, however, chronic headaches and migraines can be quite tricky to treat and can be debilitating and painful at times. For those who suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, myotherapy for headaches can show promising results.
Why Is Myotherapy For Headaches A Good Treatment Option?
Although drugs can offer a quick solution to manage headaches, pain medications only mask the pain by dulling the nerves and can cause other issues in the long run. Pain medications often fail to deal with the root cause of the problem. Myotherapy for headaches on the other hand not only reduces the pain and discomfort associated with headaches and migraines, it can also deal with the underlying root cause of the problem if there is a muscular component to your condition. This is one the reason myotherapy is considered a safe and effective method of treating chronic headaches and migraines.
Is It Muscular? | Myotherapy For Headaches
Since common headaches and migraines can occur due to a range of reasons such as poor posture, overwork, stress, referred neck pain, fatigue, poor sleeping habits, injury, and so on, a Myotherapist will first perform a thorough assessment of your condition and depending on the presentation they will put together an individualised treatment plan. Myotherapists focus on the muscular system of the body and try to release the tension in the muscles and fascia by identifying trigger points. A professional Myotherapist may use any one or a combination of the following techniques to alleviate or reduce the occurrence of your headaches or migraines:
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Dry Needling
- Soft Tissue Manipulation
- Thermal Therapy
- Myofascial Release
- Corrective Exercises
