Headaches and Migraines

A headache is a common symptom that involves aching or pain in one or more areas of the head or face. While there are many different types of headaches, one of the most common and most severe are migraines, which cause throbbing pain and may also lead to nausea, vomiting, depression and sleep disruption.

Chiropractic care has been proven effective for the treatment of migraine headaches, tension headaches, cluster and cervicogenic headaches. Proper treatment of headaches begins with a proper diagnosis of the type of headache it is and which factors are contributing to the patient’s individual condition.

Rarely headaches are caused by more serious conditions such as temporal arteritis, vertebral artery dissection, less commonly internal carotid dissection, and tumors.

At Comprehensive Medical Care our skilled team of physicians will do a thorough evaluation including patient history and physical examination and will order appropriate imaging if deemed necessary.
