TOTAL PHYSIOTHERAPY RELOCATION to our referral sources and most importantly, our patients. CARF ACCREDITATION study involved 8-12 treatments over a period of 6 weeks with and without therapeutic exercise. Another group was given exercise alone. The most promising information to come from this study is that reductions in headache frequency and intensity were still significantly decreased after 12 months with only 6 weeks of physiotherapy.

Total Physiotherapy has recently received a 3 year accreditation from the prestigious Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF is the `gold standard' when it comes to rehabilitation facility accreditation, and with it comes assurance to the public of high quality rehabilitation programs, facility and administrative policies and procedures. Total Physiotherapy receives international recognition with this award. CAN PHYSIOTHERAPY HELP WITH MY HEADACHES? There are many causes of headaches. Physiotherapy can play a major role in tension or cervicogenic headaches. For this type of headache, the origin of pain is believed to be due to changes in the neck's intervertebral joints and surrounding neuromuscular tissue. These headaches usually present unilaterally and are associated with tenderness around the upper 3 vertebrae. They are also aggravated by neck postures or movements. A study looking at physiotherapy intervention found that "manual therapy and exercise significantly reduced the frequency and intensity of headaches and neck pain." The study concluded that a combination of manual therapy and exercise was effective in reducing the duration of headaches. Physiotherapy treatment in this
