Headaches & Migraines

Headaches & Migraines Relief Treatment

If you are experiencing throbbing headaches, which might hinder your productivity and personal life, the first thing you do would be reaching out for a painkiller medication. Though these pills may relieve your pain temporarily, they might not put it off permanently. If you are having regular episodes of migraines or headaches, then it is important to consider headaches and migraines treatment in Edmonton offered by Excelsior Physiotherapy to get relief in the long run.

The major cause behind such cervicogenic headaches with acute pain can be some form of neck-related problems. Factors like facet joint trauma caused by a sports injury, herniated discs, stress, arthritis, and poor posture related to work may contribute to the injury, weakness, and strain on your facet joints and neck muscles. You might experience a sharp pain radiating from the base of your scalp that reaches towards the forehead based on the extent of your neck problem.

If you are living in and around the Edmonton region in Canada, then you are not the only person dealing with such migraine headaches. More than 90% of Canadians experience frequent or occasional headaches triggered by tension or stress. Headaches rank the 3rd among the most common pain experienced by people across the globe. Whether it is a chronic migraine, constant, or acute headache, the renowned Excelsior Physiotherapy can handle them all with customized physiotherapy, massage and acupuncture treatments.

What Are the Different Types of Headaches?

Every headache you experience might not have a similar kind of pain because each one stems from a different cause. We provide effective physiotherapy, massage & acupuncture treatment in Sherwood Park & Edmonton health center for the following types.

1. Tension Headache

This headache is highly common and caused due to maintaining poor posture at work, and repetitive motions like typing, carpentry work, etc. When there is a lot of strain on the dura mater, a thick tissue layer located close to your skull and surrounding your brain and spine, it can trigger such tension headaches. The muscles present beneath your skull experience spasm during an injury or fall, as it puts a lot of strain on the dura mater, which in turn alerts the brain by sending pain signals to cause this headache. Our expert therapists can help relieve the stress and anxiety to get rid of headaches.

2.Musculoskeletal Headache 

You will experience musculoskeletal headaches when your neck undergoes high tension due to muscle damage, emotional tension, weakness, or body imbalance. If you have experienced a traumatic injury on your neck like whiplash, then it can strain your neck muscles and the surrounding connecting tissues. You may experience severe pain along your head, neck, shoulders, and face. Contact us to avail effective physiotherapy treatment in North Edmonton region to relieve muscle tension and pain.

3.Cervicogenic Headache 

This type of headache occurs when the three neck vertebrae get involved in an injury due to concussions, work strain, or a chronic condition like arthritis. Professionals like chefs, jewelers, nail artists, drivers, carpenters, and hairdressers who have to keep their necks in a fixed position are prone to these headaches. Our massage treatment in North Edmonton location focuses on offering gentle massage to relieve the knots and pain along the vertebrae to relieve pain quickly.
