In my last post early this week, I discussed the differences between various types of headaches. I also described some of the treatments physical therapists use to help people with headaches. Since posting that information, I’ve gotten numerous inquiries about whether physical therapy treatments are effective in treating migraine headaches.
Previously, I alluded to a specialized form of manual therapy that I routinely use called Primal Reflex Release Technique™, a relatively new form of manual therapy that I learned over the past few years from the developer of this technology, John Iams of Poway, California.
Working off the basis that specific types of reflexes in the adult body are often at play in many pain conditions, PRRT™ works to impact these reflexes. In so doing, the primal nervous system undergoes a system reboot. Resultantly, the effects are often stunning . . . and sometimes immediate.
Take a moment and view my video as I discuss and demonstrate PRRT™.
I’ve been helping people with headaches for 20 years as a physical therapist. By adding PRRT to my treatment arsenal, I’ve had a much greater impact in helping my patients than at any time in my career.
