Effective Treatment Protocols for Neck Pain & Headaches
Campbell Medical Clinic offers patients non-invasive relief from neck pain and headaches. Our physical medicine specialists understand the body’s biomechanics, and are adept at treating both chronic and acute pain. Once our specialists complete an evaluation to determine the cause of your pain (recent accident, congenital defect, etc.), we can create a treatment plan to alleviate your painful symptoms. Treatments may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, or massage therapy.
Neck pain is a common complaint, as the neck and spine are responsible for supporting approximately 10 pounds of weight (the human head), putting strain on a delicate part of the body. If left untreated, neck pain can lead to headaches and additional health issues.
Headaches and Migraines
Headaches are a condition marked by pain or discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck, and are classified into two categories: primary headaches and secondary headaches. Primary headaches are caused by a lifestyle factor such as lack of sleep, while secondary headaches are the result of an injury or underlying medical condition such as sinusitis or a concussion.
The pain caused by headaches can vary from irritating to debilitating, depending on the type of headache being endured. The three most common types of headaches are tension headaches, migraines, and cluster headaches.
Tension headaches: Tension headaches are the most common type of primary headache, marked by mild to moderate pain in the head.
Migraines: Migraines are headaches that consist of intense throbbing in one area of the head. Migraines are commonly accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.
Cluster headaches: Cluster headaches are the most severe and painful form of primary headache. Those with cluster headaches experience painful, frequent attacks that occur in what are called “cluster periods.” A cluster period may last weeks or months, only to stop completely and return later.
There are safe, effective ways to manage headaches and migraines without the use of prescribed narcotics. Treatments for tension headaches involve a balance between adapting healthy habits and utilizing effective non-drug treatments. Medical treatment for headaches may include spinal decompression therapy, chiropractic adjustments, or massage therapy.
