Headaches and Migraines Explained

Headaches come in different forms—tension headaches and migraines—each presenting distinct characteristics. Some individuals, unfortunately, experience both types.

The sensation can range from a persistent dull ache at the back of the head to intense shooting pains spanning across the head and behind the eyes.

While rest occasionally provides relief, often the discomfort persists, causing a persistent achy or painful sensation, disrupting normal activities.

Let's delve deeper into each type:

Tension Headache

Typically originating from issues in the upper neck, tension headaches result from muscle tension and spasms connecting the head and neck. Strained small neck joints and irritated head nerves contribute to this form of headache. To achieve lasting relief, it's imperative to address the neck issue directly. With our years of specialized experience, we deliver safe and effective treatments, resulting in complete relief to the majority of our patients dealing with tension headache pain.


Migraines often manifest in waves, signaling their arrival and building up to prolonged episodes lasting several days. Accompanied by symptoms like nausea, light sensitivity, and dizziness, migraines involve disruptions in brain blood flow regulation. Triggers such as specific foods, weather changes, or hormonal fluctuations exacerbate migraines. Understanding these triggers and avoiding them can be frustrating. Migraine is caused by blood vessel constriction, with the tension release triggering the migraine. Treating the root cause of blood vessel constriction is crucial for lasting relief. While more challenging than tension headaches, our specialized treatment targets spinal reflexes that aggravate nerves connected to blood vessels, gradually reducing migraine frequency and severity.
