Head Pain Therapy
Looking for a Head Pain Specialist in Los Angeles?
Almost half of the American population suffers from persistent headaches from migraines. The disorder can be debilitating and typically results in stress or lack of sleep. So it’s no surprise why many people want to know how to alleviate tension headaches. Here at Massage Rx Burbank, we can soothe your head pains with different massage therapies to suit your headaches.
There are five types of headaches, all of which can be greatly affected by regular massage therapy.
- Tension headaches are caused by tension in the muscles in your head.
- Sinus headaches are caused mainly by sinus congestion or infections.
- Rebound headaches result from medication or alcohol.
- Cluster headaches are recurring, mainly affect males, and their cause is unknown.
- Migraine headaches can be hereditary and are diagnosed by several criteria of causes.
It’s important to understand what type of headache you have since we use different techniques to address each type of headache. Many of our clients tell us that they have “a terrible migraine headache,” when in fact they have regular tension headaches. Migraine headaches are the worst headaches. For massage therapy to take effect, patients must come for regular treatments, and not during an episode.
Research proves that massage therapy decreases headaches
There have been studies all over the world that prove that massage therapy decreases headaches. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that frequent headaches can be significantly reduced within the first week of a massage therapy session.
For tension headaches, research has shown that massage therapy can:
- Reduce depression/anxiety
- Decrease pain
- Decrease irritation
- Decrease tension
- Reduce the frequency of headaches
- Reduce intensity
- Decrease medication use
- Increase the cervical range of motion
If headaches are affecting your life, consider massage therapy as a proven alternative treatment here at Massage Rx.
