Headache Q & A

Dr. Elizabeth Greenberg, DC

What are the most common types of headache?

Not all headaches are created equal, and headache pain has several categories. Here are some of the most common types of headaches:

Tension headaches

The most common type of head pain originates from tension headaches. These headaches present a constant aching feeling, most often felt either at your temples or in the back of your head and neck. Tension headaches are associated with high levels of stress.

Sinus headaches

Sinus headaches originate due to inflammation of your sinus cavity. These headaches are often accompanied by fever and the presence of pus in one or both sinuses.

Cluster headaches

People experience cluster headaches in groups or cycles. Pain is often sudden and severe, usually occurring on one side of your head and sometimes leading to watery eyes or nose.

Migraine headaches

Migraine headaches cause severe pain that's often throbbing and concentrated on one side of the head. Pain may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, or increased sensitivity to sound or light.

Can spinal manipulation help with headaches?

The efficacy of any treatment option depends on the source of the problem. In the case of severe or persistent headaches, Dr. Greenberg completes a thorough diagnostic evaluation prior to determining any course of treatment.

 

If it appears that spinal misalignment plays a causal role, then spinal manipulation can be an effective treatment option. This process uses the application of carefully directed force to the vertebrae of your spine.

In some cases, spinal mobilization is the preferred treatment approach. This procedure involves less force and more gentle stretching to realign vertebrae.

These techniques can help achieve optimal spinal alignment and can correct issues stemming from years of poor posture, degenerative disease, and a host of other common conditions.

What are some other headache treatment options?

There are several treatment techniques that Dr. Greenberg uses to address headache pain. Some of these options include:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Ergonomic consultation
  • Targeted exercise
  • Massage therapy
  • Training in relaxation techniques

Far too many people live with chronic headache pain when relief is available through chiropractic care. To begin an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to your needs, contact Dr. Greenberg’s office right away.
