Headache Solutions in Chicago and Champaign
Headaches are defined as any type of pain that occurs in any part of the head. There are many different types of headaches including tension-type, migraine and cluster, cranial neuralgias and facial pain. There are also secondary headaches from underlying conditions, such as a fever, infectious disease, sinus disorder or a more serious illness.
Most headaches go away on their own. However, if your headaches are severe and recur frequently, it can affect your ability to do your daily activities and negatively impact your quality of life. At IMPACT Physical Therapy, our skilled physical therapists can help determine the type of headache you have and develop an individualized treatment plan to reduce its frequency and intensity, without the need for pain killers.
Our physical therapists are also experts in managing pain from tension-type headaches. Tension-type headaches may be a result of a neck or jaw problem, poor posture, fatigue or stress. They are the most common type of headache in adults.
