What to Expect with a Headache Relief Treatment
We are currently seeing a lot of clients with headaches, neck pain, jaw ache - either newly experienced or increasing frequency. Headache pain can come from a number of sources, so we make it all about finding the root of the pain to provide sustainable results.
If you are experiencing a toothache, headache, neck pain, shoulder tension the pain could be the result of a tight jaw, teeth-grinding or clenching or even incorrect breathing.
Your therapist will run a complete assessment, objective (question & answer), and subjective (visual and touch). They will then provide you with an overview of the best way to provide you relief.
There are a number of techniques that may be engaged to assist you; myofascial release, needling, cupping, and TMJ release.
It is important that we discuss the techniques with you as they may include some oral manual work and temporal needles. Any allergies to latex or heavy metals must be discussed with your therapist prior to treatment.
Your therapist may provide exercises, postural cues, and breathing techniques to assist you in elongating the results of your treatment. It is important to keep these top of mind to help you achieve a pain-free life.
