Headaches originating from the upper neck as well as chronic tension-type headaches have been associated with limited neck range of motion, reduced neck flexor endurance and greater forward head posture. Based on these associations, it’s now believed that these neck dysfunctions can lead to headaches.
Caring for these problems with physical therapist directed treatment can reduce headaches. Specfic treatments have been found to significantly reduce the number of headaches patients experience. Dr. DiPaolo is trained in the current best research and techniques. After a thorough evaluation, he often uses the following treatment techniques:
- Manual therapy
- Passive range of motion
- Joint mobilization
- Isometric & isotonic strengthening
Neck and headache pain usually respond very well to the right kind of physical therapy.
As one of only two Certified Craniofacial Therapists in the state of New Jersey, Dr. DiPaolo, is a great choice for conservative, hands-on treatment of headaches and neck pain.
