Head Complaints

Headaches are a frequent complaint of patients presenting for care. Headaches are a common problem that can be triggered by many different factors.

Headaches are extremely distressing for those who suffer with the condition. It is important to conduct a thorough history in order to determine the cause of the headaches. Factors which will be considered are:

  • How long have you experienced headaches?
  • Where do you feel the pain?
  • How often do you have headaches?
  • Past and current medical history
  • Medications
  • Lifestyle

Headaches are often accompanied by additional complaints such as neck and TMJ pain as well as posture distortions.

Those that can be traced to disorders in the neck are called cervicogenic headaches. 

We have had great success in treating headaches related to the neck through the use of lifestyle education, laser therapy and physical treatments. Headaches typically respond quickly to appropriate treatment.
