Headaches & Migraines
Headaches of all types are by far the most common type of head pain. Everyone, it seems, has experienced headache pain at some point in their lives. However, for those who experience regular, recurring, and severe headaches – the pain can be downright debilitating.
Core Medical Center’s headache and migraine treatment program is unique and different from what you might experience at other healthcare provider offices. That is because we utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches for the most effective results.
The location, duration, intensity, and triggers of your headache can vary depending on the type of headache you are experiencing. The primary headache types are:
A piercing type of pain that is usually felt only on one side of the face – such as behind your eye. Cluster headaches tend to appear, resolve, then reappear in a series. These types of headaches tend to reappear at the same time of day.
The most severe type of headaches are migraines. The pain of a migraine can vary from person to person, but it tends to appear as an intense pounding or throbbing that shows up suddenly and can last for days. It is typically only felt on one side of your head at a time. Migraines are usually accompanied by a sensitivity to light and sound, as well as nausea or vomiting. Migraines can occur with or without auras – sensory disturbances that precede the migraine, such as flashes of lights or zigzag lines.
What distinguishes a tension headache is an ache or pain felt all over the head. It typically is not a throbbing type of pain. Tension headaches are often accompanied by muscle tenderness in the neck or shoulders.
