Headaches are a growing healthcare issue in which physical therapy can play an important role.

HHCRN Headache Management BannerThe American Headache Association estimates that more than 45 million Americans suffer from headaches each year and headaches account for 150 million lost work days per year, costing American employers $17 billion.

Patients who have recurring headaches and can benefit from active self-management tools for headache and neck pain are candidates for therapy.


The Headache Management Program

  • Subjective History
  • Postural Assessment
  • Headache Provocation Tests
  • Range of Motion 
  • Neurological Screen
  • Upper Extremity Range of Motion and Strength Testing

Physical Therapy Interventions include:

  • Home Exercise Program
