Alleviate Cervigogenic, Tension, and Migraine Headache Pain for Good
Symmetry has published several multi-clinical site randomized control trials which has led the industry to establish new standards for the treatment of headaches. Our published research supports multi-modal physical therapy treatment including dry needling, spinal manipulation, myofascial and soft tissue release of the muscle on the head, neck, and scapula along with postural correction are effective treatment strategies for patients who suffer from cervicogenic and tension-type headaches.
Effective, Research-Based Treatments
Specific physical therapy interventions including electric dry needling, spinal manipulation, and myofascial/soft tissue release work has been shown to be an effective treatment strategy for patient that suffer from cervicogenic and tension-type headaches.
There is evidence that a single treatment of multimodal physical therapy that includes electric dry needling, spinal manipulation, and soft tissue release results in a meaningful reduction of pain and disability secondary to cervicogenic and migraine headaches.
Multimodal physical therapy for headaches has been shown to result in meaningful reductions in pain and disability that last >3 months following treatment.
Multimodal physical therapy targets anatomical structures in the upper neck and posterior occiput that cannot be reached by conventional treatment.
Effective and Versatile: Multimodal physical therapy that targets the cervical spine and posterior occiput helps to desensitize the trigeminocervical nucleus.
Multimodal physical therapy for cervicogenic and tension-type headaches helps to improve concentration and cognitive performance.
What are Tension-Type Headaches?
Tension-type headaches are bilaterally located, are associated with mild to moderate intensity, are not aggravated by routine physical activity, are not associated with nausea, photo/phono phobia, or another disorder.
A recent multi-clinical site randomized control trial of 142 patients found that electric dry needling and spinal manipulation resulted in a significant reduction in medication intake along with headache intensity, disability, frequency, and duration in patients with cervicogenic headaches.
