Headaches come in a variety of forms. It is important to correctly diagnose the headache type in order to treat it effectively. One of the most common types of headaches is the cervicogenic headache, so called because it originates due to tension and stress in the neck (cervical spine.) This type of headache is very responsive to physical medicine and is something we are very effective at treating.

Headaches and head pain can occur in a variety of areas around the face and head. The pain can be especially severe and range from spot locations to wide bands of pain and discomfort around the head. Headaches can become so severe that you may experience nausea or difficulty seeing.

What are the Causes of Headaches?

Headaches can come in a variety of forms, including a migraine, cluster or tension headache. They may be the result of physical or emotional stress, a chemically-related disorder, or can be a sign of a more serious condition. But no matter the cause, every headache sufferer will agree: the pain is unwelcome.
