Treating Chronic Headaches with Aquatic Therapy

Treating Chronic Headaches with Aquatic Therapy

Most of the time headaches go away within a few hours and can easily be treated at home. However, if you suffer from chronic headaches, then you should consider seeing a physical therapist for treatment. Many of the treatments used by physical therapists may help you find relief from your chronic headaches.

At Border Therapy Services, our team of dedicated physical therapists has been working to provide the people in El Paso and Horizon City, TX and Las Cruces, NM with physical therapy services for years.

In order to find the cause of your chronic headaches, we’ll perform an initial assessment. This assessment will lay the groundwork for us to create a personalized treatment plan personalized to fit your needs.

One of the methods our staff may include in your chronic headache treatment plan is aquatic therapy.

How aquatic therapy may benefit your chronic headaches

The primary goal behind including aquatic therapy is to relieve the tension the areas that are causing you pain. For chronic headache sufferers, most of the pain stems from your neck.

Relieving the pain tension in your neck is so much easier to achieve in water-based therapy than it is in traditional land-based therapies thanks to the natural buoyancy of our bodies in water.

Including aquatic therapy in your treatment plan may produce a wide array of benefits for you and your chronic headaches. These benefits may include:

  • Reducing the amount of stress on your neck muscles
  • Promoting neck relaxation and spinal decompression
  • Increasing blood flow to the neck region
  • Enhancing your healing process

A treatment plan that includes aquatic therapy may allow you the chance to find relief from your chronic headaches for good.
