Types Of Headaches
There are 3 main headache types, all of which have unique treatment methods. These types are migraine, tension, and cervicogenic. The key to creating long-term relief is to first determine which type of headache you are suffering from.
Migraine: This is usually the most severe type, and can include nausea and vomiting, along with sensitivity to light and sound. It usually occurs on one side of the head, and can present with or without aura.
Tension: This is the most common headache type. It usually occurs in the front and on both sides of the head, with a “pressure” or “squeezing” feeling. It can be aggrivated by stress or tension.
Cervicogenic: Simply put, this is a headache that originates from your neck. It occurs on one side of head and neck and is aggravated by sustained postures and specific neck movements. Often times you will experience neck pain and stiffness along with the headache.
At Onward Denver, we specialize in providing relief to those dealing with chronic headaches and would love the opportunity to help those wanting to regain their freedom of movement without surgeries, injections, or wasting time with ineffective treatments.
Don’t just take our word for it
See what these patients had to say about their experience with Onward Denver…
“I got dry needling done with Dr. Lauren. I came in barely able to hold my own neck up. After one dry needling session I could finally relax and not be in constant pain. Within 3 sessions I was right as rain and was given exercises to begin strengthening that area so I don’t need to keep coming in. She also did the same thing with my husband’s back! 2 years in the army and he still doesn’t have pain!”
