Neck Pain and Headaches

Neck & Headaches Pain relief Alexandria,VA

When should you seek physical therapy for NECK AND HEAD PAIN?

By the time people seek treatment for their neck pain and headaches, it’s often not because of the occasional twinge, but rather for problems that have lasted several months. Common complaints include migraines and tension headaches, not being able to turn one’s head fully, all-over neck soreness, stabbing pain localized to one spot on the neck, or pain that radiates as far down as the fingertips.

In some cases, neck pain may arise from a car accident, sports injury, or fall. More commonly, problems develop through poor posture or from having to perform the same action repeatedly. A sedentary, desk bound lifestyle may add resulting weakness to the problem.
