Types Of Headaches In Gig Harbor WA

  • Tension Headaches: Muscle spasms throughout the neck region and upper back that can refer pain to the forehead or temporal region

  • Migraines: Debilitating, severe headaches that causes changes in vision, sense of smell, and orientation. Often accomplished by an aura of flashes of light. Many Americans suffer from Migraine headaches and are only left with daily medications to handle their problem. There needs to be a better way.
  • Sinus Headaches: Congestion within the frontal sinuses can refer pain to the forehead, causing sinus headaches
  • Cervicogenic Headaches: Headaches caused by nerve irritation due to fixated joints in the cervical spine that can refer pain to the back of the head, causing cervicogenic headaches. Many times this type of headache is misdiagnosed due to its complexity. Patients usually visit their medical provider and are told that there is nothing that they can do for their problem. Many times, the doctor does not even examine their neck as an underlying issue and the patient is left at the end of the appointment with a prescription for some sort of medication that does not address the underlying root causes

Simple & Successful Solutions To Headaches

Most patients with headaches are not given the choice of addressing the underlying causes, their doctors appointment ends with a prescription for medication’s, which does not address route causes. Nationwide doctors visit are seven minutes total. Seven minutes is not enough time to address underline causes, dietary triggers, stress, triggers, muscle, and joint causes. You cannot blame your doctor for this model, we live in a world called managed care. Managed care is dictated by insurance reimbursements and most doctors only have 7 minutes to address one or two problems, that's not enough time
