Getting to the Root of Headaches

Relieve Your Headaches with Physical Therapy

Headache pain can vary from being a slight annoyance to completely debilitating. Many headaches stem from poor body posture and position. Poor posture can put stress on the cervical spine which houses delicate nerves that can become inflamed. By examining the body and paying close attention to symptoms, our skilled physical therapists can develop a plan of care to lessen and alleviate your headaches. Avoid adding an additional medication and choose Western Berks Physical Therapy for non-surgical treatment for facial or headache pain. Using manual techniques we will improve the motion of the neck, which reduces stress and strain. Your therapist will also create a customized home exercise routine to improve muscle strength and posture. If you suffer from headaches and want relief now, visit us online at to learn more and schedule an appointment.



My Back Pain Always Returns! What Can I Do?

After the common cold, the most reported reason Americans miss work is back pain. Unfortunately, once you have experienced back strain or injury, it can easily become a recurring problem. Many cases of back strain are due to the way we live. Unless you implement lifestyle changes, the same muscles and ligaments that were initially injured keep repeating the same patterns, never allowing them to properly heal or be protected. Even worse, a recent study discovered that our natural inclination to avoid using sore or damaged muscles causes us to “compensate,” using inappropriate muscle groups in ways that normally produce pain. That’s why physical therapy is so important for back injuries.

Since shortened, weak or inflexible muscles are often responsible for causing back injuries in the first place, we will focus on increasing flexibility, balance and strength in the spine, and its surrounding muscles (especially the core, trunk, and the quadriceps). Beware: designing a physical fitness program yourself can do more harm than good. By going too far, too fast, you can actually create more back strain. Leave it to the experts!

We can analyze the cause of your injury and the elements you need to  improve on. That can help keep your back pain from coming…backSchedule your back consultation today!
