Headaches


There are many known causes of headaches and yet they remain a mystery to the medical profession. There are at least three types of headaches that can be helped with appropriate therapy.


1. Muscle tension headaches can be relieved by appropriate stretching and hands on soft tissue techniques. If the source of the tension can be identified and resolved then many of these types of headaches can be eliminated.


2. Postural related headaches can be helped by postural correction. In the presence of restrictive tightness in the head, neck, and upper back areas the therapist can assist the patient in relieving tightness so the patient has the option of being in correct alignment. This can be done with appropriate soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release and joint mobilization techniques.


3. Chemical headaches happen when the person has an excess of metabolic and chemical waste in the body or they may be allergic to certain foods or chemicals. Lymphatic drainage and massage can help rid the body of excessive amounts of chemical waste.


Cranio-Sacral therapy can be helpful for all of these types of headaches. This is a very light hands-on treatment that is said to balance the cranio-sacral rhythm and is said to make micro adjustments to the cranial bones. There is some debate among medical professionals as to whether or not this really works. It definitely has a calming effect on the central nervous system and many patients experience significant relief with this treatment.
