Types of Headaches

Almost everyone has had a headache. Headaches and migraines are the most common form of pain. The most common type of headache people experience is a tension headache. Tension headaches can occur from muscles tightening in your shoulders, neck, scalp, and/or jaw. They are often related to stress, depression, and/or anxiety.

Other common types of headaches include migraines, cluster headaches, and sinus headaches. Most people can alleviate some of these pains by improving their diets, improving their relaxing and sleeping habits, and taking over the counter pain relievers.

Not all  headaches require a doctor's attentions. But frequent occurrences of headaches can be a symptom of a larger issue. Let your doctor know if you have frequent, sudden, and/or severe headaches. They will be able to determine if more medical attention is necessary.


Diagnosing Headaches

If you are suffering from frequent headaches, our physicians are board certified, and are dedicated to giving you a comprehensive exam that will aid in diagnosing the cause of your symptoms. Using advanced diagnostic techniques, our doctors will find out the reason for your pain, and then get you on the road to better health right away. Here are a few steps our physicians use when completing their comprehensive exams:

  • We take your complete medical history to identify or rule out possible causes of your pain.

  • We conduct a thorough physical exam.

  • We carefully review your symptoms, including how you would describe the pain (burning, achy, sharp, etc.).

  • We may order diagnostic tests, including x-ray, MRI or CT scan, to help us diagnose your headache pain.

Once we have an accurate diagnosis, we will work together with you to create a treatment plan that will effectively address your chronic headaches.
