Headaches Q & A

Discovery Medical Center

Are headaches common?

Discovery Medical Center often sees people who are suffering from constant headache pain. Headaches can be a common occurrence, but they shouldn’t be considered “normal.” Most patients feel frustrated and overwhelmed due to ineffective care options, such as drug medications, that only mask the painful symptoms without addressing the root cause.

If a migraine headache is present, it can cause significant pain and severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, for hours or even days. Nausea also accompanies migraines along with vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.


How does Discovery Medical Center help treat headaches?

The medical team at Discovery Medical Center, offers many different safe and effective solutions to resolve your headaches. Often, headaches can be the result of inflammation associated within nerves in the cervical spine. Several nerves line the cervical spine up into the head, and a partial dislocation of the vertebrae in your neck can cause your head to ache with pain.
A proper diagnosis is an important first step at reducing the pain of your headache. Your first visit with our physicians inside the offices at Discovery Medical Center will involve an examination to determine your specific needs and find out if you are a good candidate for our services.


What services are provided?

Depending on the results of the diagnosis, and your ongoing symptoms, X-Rays will be taken of your neck to visualize any underlying alignment issues. From there, our team will establish a treatment plan to help eliminate headaches. Treatment plans may include sub-occipital nerve blocks, sphenopalatine ganglion nerve blocks, and chiropractic adjustments, as well as physical rehab.
