What to Expect

At North Boulder Physical Therapy, we’ll start with a thorough assessment, looking for mechanical, postural and ergonomic causes. Our trained staff will also evaluate your muscles, joints, ligaments, nerves, and fascia of the head, neck and thoracic area which can often reveal reasons for head, jaw, and neck pain. And if you’ve been referred by your primary care physician or other provider, we’ll utilize a team approach to providing you with physical therapy and treatment for headaches.

Based on what’s found in your evaluation, your physical therapist will put together a personalized plan for care. It will typically include home exercises along with appointments for physical therapy. At our Boulder office, physical therapy and treatment for headaches will include soft tissue mobilization (massage), joint mobilization, postural re-education, and manual cervical traction. If needed, we may treat you with laser and ultrasound, as well as dry needling and electrical stimulation.

If you experience chronic headaches and pain that prevent you from going to work, completing simple tasks or otherwise enjoying life, please get in touch with North Boulder Physical Therapy. We’ve helped numerous patients throughout the local area and beyond.
