Most of the time headaches are just what the meaning of the word implies — a pain. Often, they go away on their own, perhaps with the help of an over-the-counter medicine.

But there are headaches, and then there are headaches. This other type may recur often or may last for a long time. They also may need treatment by a physical therapist — or other health care provider — to improve.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, physical therapist Denise Schneider discusses several types of headaches. What causes them? What are the red flags that suggest their seriousness? How long does it take to treat headaches of different types?

Get answers to these questions and learn how a physical therapist can help your pain in the brain. This "best of" Move Forward Radio episode first aired in 2019.
