Specialist for Migraine & Headache Treatment in Bergenfield, NJ

We all have headaches. The various types of headaches that are treated at Bergenfield Physical Therapy include migraine headaches, and stress-related headaches. Most headaches are due to myofascial degeneration and hypertonicity in the muscles of the throat.

At Bergenfield Physical Therapy, we offer a non-surgical option to treat headaches safely. You will receive a personalized health plan that aims to bring you back to the level of activities and lifestyles you were used to before having pain. We show you how to eliminate the pain, correct the cause, and eliminate the symptoms.

Bergenfield Physical Therapy offers a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan that identifies the true causes of pain and treats it.

SYMPTONS

At Physical Therapy Near Tenafly, we believe that headaches are the result of a lack of proper functioning of the neck and muscles together. For example, many times, patients suffer from neck drainage associated with mild hypertonicity, poor posture, loss of muscle function, and airway obstruction.

At Physical Therapy Near Englewood, we have extensive experience in treating headaches. Based on the performance evaluation, we create a unique treatment plan. The procedure will be a combination of manual therapy, soft muscle release, internal muscle strengthening, and physical therapy exercises. We use our hands-on experience in healing and rehabilitating the hands to protect the neck, muscles, and surrounding muscles.

CAUSES

At Bergenfield Physical Therapy & Rehab Center, we believe that headache results from the lack of proper function of the muscles of the neck and joints.

Other reasons include, among others:

  • Developmental dysfunctions
  • Developmental imbalance with muscles
  • Muscular strains
  • Ligamentous sprains
  • Poor motor control in the cervical and thoracic spine
  • Lack of function and strength with core stability
  • TMJ Dysfunction (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)
  • Stress
  • No deep breathing system activation or function
  • Abnormal motor control
  • Poor motor engram functionality

IMPORTANT MUSCLES INVOLVED AND NEED PROPER RELEASE AND REHABILIATION:

  • Erector spinae
  • Longus capitis
  • Longus colli
  • Ligamentous sprains
  • Rectus capitis anterior
  • Rectus capitis lateral
  • Scalenes
  • Semispinalis capitis
  • Semispinalis cervicis
  • Sternocleidomastoid
  • Trapezius
