Find out how physical therapy and osteopathic care can relieve your headaches.

Are you dealing with persistent or severe headaches? Are they interfering with your ability to get your work done? Are you experiencing headaches several times a month? Our Battle Creek, MI, osteopractor and physical therapist Dr. Glennda Chawdhry has helped patients treat everything from tension headaches to migraines with simple, non-invasive and drug-free treatment options.

What is an osteopractor?

Our osteopractor is a medical doctor who provides physical therapy, manual manipulative therapies and a variety of complementary treatments aimed at treating and managing acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions and symptoms that arise as a result of certain misalignments and issues within the body. Our Battle Creek, MI, physical therapist focuses on treating the body as a whole rather than spot treating specific areas.

This kind of comprehensive full-body treatment can be beneficial for many people who are dealing with chronic pain, headaches and other issues that aren’t responding to traditional medical treatments. Many treatment plans provide medication, which doesn’t actually treat the problem only masks the symptoms. Our goal is to target the underlying cause to get rid of your migraines or headaches.

How can osteopathic care treat my headaches?

Many headaches are caused by tension somewhere in the body, most often the neck and shoulder. This is very common in those who work desk jobs or lead sedentary lives. Our osteopractor can alleviate you tension headaches, cluster headaches and migraines through a variety of different techniques and treatments including,

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Dry needling
  • Myofascial release
  • Physical therapy exercises focused on addressing posture, joint mobility and range of motion
  • Manual manipulative techniques
  • Cryotherapy
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Electrical stimulation therapy

Migraines can cause debilitating pain and impact a person’s quality of life and work performance. If you are struggling with migraines that aren’t responding to medications and other treatment options then it might be time to turn to our physical therapist and osteopractor for comprehensive and complementary treatment. All the treatments above are non-invasive or minimally invasive, offering long-term relief. Manual manipulation therapy is safe and effective for patients of all ages.
