When headaches start it’s easy to think they will just “go away” in a couple of days. Your doctor may tell you to rest and take pain medication to manage your symptoms. As the pain progresses, you realize that you are avoiding activities due to pain. Or worse, you start to believe that headaches are a normal part of stress and aging.

Is that how you are feeling right now?

If so you’re not alone. In fact, every day at Physical Therapy for everyBODY we help people just like you! And when it comes to living with headaches, you want to know:

“Why Do I Constantly Have Headaches?”

or

“What Makes You Different From The Other Physical Therapy Clinic I’ve Tried Before?”

Most people think that all Physical Therapy is the same. If you’ve tried Physical Therapy before and left without having your goals met, there is hope! If your Physical Therapy experience consisted of a generic sheet of exercises without individualized hands on treatment, you’ve had what we call a “typical” Physical Therapy experience.

Sadly, this describes the treatments most people experience before coming to see us. No wonder you may be thinking of getting an injection or taking pain medication, even though they are dangerous and costly. Or that you’re considering the surgery your doctor recommended because you feel like that is the only way to get rid of your headaches.

Does That Sound Like You?

Does it feel like no one is really listening to you and hearing what you’re saying? Do you wish that someone would listen to your whole story and put the pieces of this puzzle together for you? We believe that hearing your story is the first step towards building your plan for success.

Are you tired of everyone telling you that headaches are normal as you get older due to stress? Or that you just need to “give it some time” and rest? If you’re active, or desire to be, rest is rarely the best advice because when you go back to doing what you love, the problem is still there.

Do you suffer from frequent tension headaches that leave you feeling tired, cranky, and irritable? You may be so tired from the headaches that you feel like fatigue is causing more headaches! Or you may find yourself constantly tossing and turning at night because you can’t find a comfortable position due to constant pain.

You may have seen a doctor who prescribed pain medication that relieves the headache pain in the short term but doesn’t provide lasting results. Worse, you go back to the doctor because you still have the same pain weeks later. You are sent for an MRI which shows some scary findings (which may actually be NORMAL findings). Then, you’re often advised rest, given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and offered an injection as your only option. This is incredibly frustrating and explains why so many people aged 39+ are continuing to suffer with chronic headaches.

We hear this story every day here at Physical Therapy for everyBODY. If you are looking to finally get some relief from your headaches and also a permanent fix to your problem – you’ve come to the right place.

Has This Type of Thing Happened to You?

Why else do headaches last longer than it should? Well, you may be confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice - but not all of it is credible.

Maybe you think your headaches were caused by doing something - like lifting or sleeping awkwardly. But the truth is it was caused by years and years of poor posture. This caused the muscles in your neck to become weak. The lifting or the awkward sleeping position was just the EFFECT of that.

Even if you don’t have pain every day, are you concerned about the pain popping up during the most inconvenient time? Are you worried about being stuck in bed while on a vacation or missing out on time with your family? Do you feel like you are getting old? We understand and we are here to help.

Headaches can be very confusing, especially if you don’t know what to do about it. Or you may be frustrated because you have tried so many things but your headaches are still the same. Confusion and frustration are the biggest reasons why most people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ – as if it’s normal and ‘just the way it is’. In fact, some of your friends and family have probably told you…”Headaches are normal as you get older”.

Do You Feel That Way Too?

Here’s 7 More Reasons Why Your Headaches Could Be Lasting Longer Than They Should:

  • You thought/hoped it would magically go away on its own - but it didn’t.
  • The doctor who told you to rest, take painkillers and muscle relaxers – but the pills did little to help your headaches and as soon as they wore off your headaches struck again!.
  • A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets headaches as they get older, so you just accepted it as a ‘normal’ part of aging and stress.
  • You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or even a Physical Therapist in the past, but it just didn’t seem to make your headaches better.
  • You searched the internet, watched some video exercises or got ideas that promised immediate relief but they either didn’t do a thing, or even made your headaches ten times worse.
  • You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your headaches were so bad or because of number 5 above, but all that did was make your neck feel even more stiff and tight.
  • You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix the pain. But all they did was feel nice and relaxing. And didn’t do anything to fix it long term.

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our Specialists at our Maple Valley clinic, Physical Therapy for everyBODY, to find out what can be done to help YOU. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work, you are closer to finding the thing that does!

We believe – actually we KNOW – that 90% of all musculoskeletal injuries (aches, pain, strains, and headaches) can be solved without prescribing medication, without injections, and certainly without surgery!

What Can I Do to Get Rid of My Headaches And Keep It From Coming Back?

Well, here are 4 things you can do:

  • Start by Making a Decision to Get Help From a Specialist - You have seen the doctor who gave you medication, tried the YouTube videos that didn’t work and hoped it would go away. You suddenly find yourself 6 months down the line and nothing has changed except the list of all the things you can’t do.
  • Do The RIGHT ExercisesOne of the best things to help you ease your headaches is the correct series of progressed exercises. The right exercises given to you by a Specialist Physical Therapist will provide pain relief and allow you to move more easily. And we can make sure that you get to the root of what’s causing the problem, so it won’t come back anytime soon (or aggravate your headaches and make them even worse like some exercises do).
  • Use Proper Posture When Sitting At The Computer, While Binging Netflix, And While ReadingSitting for prolonged periods of time with your head in the wrong position increases stress to the muscles in the neck. Over time this can lead to headaches. It would really help if you were given instruction in the proper posture for your body. Along with hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
  • Get Real, Hands-On Physical Therapy - Physical Therapy is proven to help people with headaches. In fact, at Physical Therapy for everyBODY we see patients with headaches every day. If your headaches are affecting your job, your ability to keep active, if they threaten your independence or get in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - Physical Therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

Now this to me is what true physical therapy is, what you guys do here. What I've seen other PT folks do is they come and they kind of manipulate the affected area and then they pass you off to someone else, more of like a factory. This is definitely a one-on-one fully integrated, full service. It's pretty amazing actually.

Cause it's a small operation you know who you're going to see and that they're really gonna pay some attention and look, and try and understand what the problem is, what the cause of the problem is, and then work with you to solve it. And that's, for me, the reason I keep coming back and why I'm been coming for a while now.

I can tell you that all physical therapy is not the same! I went to a local physical therapy chain that was recommended by my doctor and after three or four visits they pretty much put me on a machine and watched me do exercises. I hoped they would get me back to running, yoga, walking and playing with grandkids but I wasn't getting better so looked online and that's how I found you guys.
