About Headaches

Headaches

A headache, also called “Cephalgia” is specifically pain in the head, and can be the result of many different factors, such as stress, structure, exertion, diet, medication, and other underlying medical conditions. Headaches can be sharp, dull, have a gradual onset or appear suddenly.
 
Headache Consultation: A comprehensive consultation is the first step for properly assessing your headache concerns. Once a cause is identified, appropriate recommendations can be made for a personalized treatment plan.

Primary Headache



A primary headache is a result of over-activity in the pain sensitive areas of the brain. A primary headache is not a symptom of any underlying disease, but can be caused by fatigue, sleep deprivation, side effects of both prescription and recreational drugs, alcohol, or even dental issues and eating very cold foods. Primary headaches can be classified into categories: tension, migraine and cluster.

Secondary Headache



A secondary headache is a symptom of an underlying diseases condition, which irritates/activates the pain sensitive areas of the brain. A few examples might include a sinus headache from sinus irritation and hypertension headache caused by high blood pressure.

Cranial Neuralgia



Cranial Neuralgia refers to a specific type of headache that results from inflammation of the nerves located in the head and neck. Neuralgia means "nerve pain" literally, and this nerve pain, which causes this type of headache originates within the cranial nerves and/or the cervical spinal nerves. some examples of this type of headache include trigeminal neuralgia, which involves severe facial pain.

3 Steps to Improving Your Headaches

Testimonials

  My father started getting recurrent headaches a couple of months ago. Upon diagnosis, it turned out to be what doctors called 'Primary Headache'. He was prescribed the usual painkillers, it ended up causing him a gastrointestinal inflammation. We were at a loss about what to do, when I came across Pain Away Clinics while searching online for answers. A month of therapy has made all the difference, his headaches have reduced significantly and he's been able to get back to a healthy life. Thank heavens for the internet!  

Simon Williams

  I've been getting some really bad headaches off and on for a couple of years now. The meds would usually stop the pain, but only for a bit. A guy at work told me about a new technique called MMT. Finally, I know why all this has been happening and the treatment with the exercises have been very helpful. More people should get into this!  

Nathan McGovern

  My son has complained of headaches over the last few months. The doctor prescribed some pain medication, which I really hated to give him, but they kept coming anyway. I found this type of treatment online and took him to the Chiropractor for the sessions; it's been great going so far. The headaches are way fewer now, and I wish we'd found it earlier.
