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 Richmond, 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 Richmond…
“Mark does a great job in tailoring the need of the patient by taking the time to assess every aspect of my injury from mobility to muscle compensation issues. What I liked most was that, he was able to draw out a clear timeline for short term and long term goals that fitted my needs to go back to playing sports at full speed. If you want someone that will take the time to recover from all aspects of your injury, give Mark a call.”
“All physical therapists are not equal. I’ve used Dr. Mark Gallant for over four years with superior results. Knowledge, professionalism, preparedness, compassion and friendliness are the recipe here. Undoubtedly I’ve healed faster than expected.”
“Dr. Mark is the absolute best person to see when it comes to aches and pains. His knowledge and experience is highlighted in his methodical approach to assessment and treatment. Not only did Dr. Gallant treat my nagging pains, he would go out of his way to explain potential causes and how to avoid them in the future. Onward’s process of identifying and actually treating the cause, rather than symptoms, is what sets them apart from everyone else.”
