Headache Or Migraine

There are hundreds of causes for head ad face pain. Primary headaches are those that have no identifiable structural or disease-related etiology. It accounts for 90 % of head pain cases. The most common of these head pain cases are migraines. There are multiple classifications of migraines, but the treatment is very similar with most cases.

It is important to find good preventative medications to decrease the intensity and severity of the attacks. This is followed by a medication that is taken only when needed to abort the attack. If the patient fails medications Botox injections are indicated along with neuromodulation, occipital stimulation, and supraorbital stimulation could be tried.

Migraine Headache

Everyone will suffer from a headache at least once in their lives, but for those who suffer from chronic headaches, their functionality and quality of life is severely limited. Many headaches are often the result of neck pain, and so it is critical to find a physician who finds the source of your pain. There are many treatment options available for chronic head and neck pain suffers, from injections, chiropractic care, medication management, to the use of technology known as a “pacemaker for pain.”

A Migraine Headache is defined as a headache that can last from 4 hours to 3 days.

  • pain is usually moderate to severe; there is a pulsating sensation and often only affects one side of the head.
  • may be associated with nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound
  • a patient could experience changes in vision or hearing (an ‘aura’, which may occur just before or just as the migraine begins)
