Headaches

 

There are various causes of headaches. There is a group of patients for whom physical therapy for headaches is likely to be beneficial and may help to prevent headaches from occurring in the first place.

These individuals are the patients who suffer headaches with musculoskeletal problems involving the neck and upper jaw. Our physical therapists can help to determine whether your headaches are caused by referred pain or from poor posture causing muscle tension. Sitting in front of a computer all day can help contribute to headache pain by encouraging behaviors, and posture, that can be corrected with physical therapy.

Modern technology devices are wonderful, but they tend to put people at risk for poor, forward head posture and this alone can be the cause of chronic headaches. Our physical therapists can help teach you correct posturing so that your headaches can go away and stay away. Our individualized physical therapy for headaches can help return you to the pain free life you deserve.

Here’s what some of our patients had to say...

I started PT after a car accident. The staff was extremely helpful not just with injuries from the accident, but also other issues that had been bothering me. They are very good at communicating problems and solutions and are friendly to boot. Can’t recommend enough.

five stars Kevin RET Patient

Attentive, responsive, pleasant in communication, knowledgeable staff. I got good results in a short time. Thankful to Dr. Andrew for useful information and for a program of exercises.

five stars Elena RET Patient

Doug Free, the manager at Mercer Island Physical Therapy, has a PhD in PT, and is an amazing diagnostic doctor who explains why a specific injury occurred. He also does fabulous work on your body. His entire staff is knowledgeable and excellent therapists. 

five stars Gary RET Patient

I saw Anne at 7 weeks post ulnar nerve transposition. I’ve made more progress in 1 week with her than I did in those first 7.  She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current research.  I’d feel very good about sending my family and friends her way!

five stars Holli RET Patient

Kelly is amazing! I felt very comfortable and she asked all of the right questions, was super friendly, and knows exactly how to help. I always leave feeling so much better, and confident that if I do my exercises, I will heal!

five stars Kelsey RET Patient

Michelle has been amazing to work with. She quickly diagnosed the root cause of the issues that continued to plague me after recovering from hip replacement surgery that other PT’s (different companies) could not. She listens, is creative, resourceful, and very knowledgeable. Everyone at the clinic is always very professional and interested in our progress.

five stars Conrac RET Patient

I have been going to Summit Therapy for a shoulder problem. I’ve made steady progress and have gotten much pain relief. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. I recently had a sudden problem of vertigo. My therapist knew exactly what to do and performed a treatment that stopped the dizziness.
