Looking for headache treatment in Bellevue, NE?
If you are looking for headache treatment, you are not alone. Headaches are extremely common and nearly everyone has a headache occasionally. Around 95 percent of headaches are primary headaches, such as tension-type, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease; the headache itself is the primary concern.
The greatest majority of primary headaches are tension-type and are associated with muscle tension in the neck. Today, Americans engage in more sedentary activities than in the past, and more hours are spent in one fixed position or posture (such as sitting in front of a computer). This can increase joint irritation and muscle tension in the neck, upper back and scalp, causing a headache.

With the majority of headaches being categorized as tension-type, we offer several manual, hands-on therapies to address the muscles of your neck. The suboccipital muscles are very small muscles located at the top of your neck just below your skull. Not only do these muscles provide dynamic stabilization of the upper head they allow us to move our head from left to right and in extension. If these muscles are “locked” together there is constant tension in that area. These muscles can entrap surrounding nerves and vasculature, often times causing headaches and referral of pain to the forehead, ear and eye.
At Behm Muscle & Joint Clinic we conduct a complete assessment of your cervical spine utilizing movement based tests as well as orthopedic tests to determine the cause of your headache pain. Our headache treatments include soft tissue therapies, corrective exercise and Chiropractic manipulations.
