If you are dealing with any pain in or around your head, give us a call. Let’s talk about what’s going on and get you back to your life.

When you think of your head, you might think it’s made up of the skull and jaw — two parts. Actually, 22 bones are in the cranium (what we think of as the skull), plus the jaw bones.

Picture a newborn – clearly our heads grow as we grow, but the bones also fuse. The head doesn’t have joints, per se, but it does have a degree of flexibility. It’s like a zipper – fused and connected, but with some give and take (we need those for functions like coughing).

Whether you come to us for a concussion, recurring headaches, or with pain or mobility issues in any area of your head, our therapists will do a deep dive assessment to not only understand the sources of pain or the history of the injury, but also to look at the whole body. Head injuries can affect your neck, your balance, even your eyesight. That’s why we always start with a thorough exam and a detailed conversation before creating a customized plan for your recovery.
