Physical Therapy for Migraine

Monmouth County rehabilitation facility offers hope for migraine sufferers through a holistic approach that includes physical therapy to address the cause and symptoms of migraine.

Migraine is a neurological condition that is experienced in a number of ways—most notably as an intense, recurrent headache. Other symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, and photophobia. Some patients experience an ‘aura’ before the occurance of a headache, which may consist of visual and auditory disturbances, vertigo, numbness and tingling, and sensitivity to touch.

The headache itself is known to be severe and usually localized on one side of the head; in fact, the term ‘migraine’ comes from the Greek for ‘half’ and ‘head.’ There are two types of migraine: migraine with aura (otherwise known as a classic migraine that includes the four phases of prodrome, aura, pain, and post-aura) and a common migraine (a single headache phase).
