Migraines and Chronic Headaches

The migraine headache is perhaps the best known special type of headache.

Symptoms include-

  • Dizziness
  • Visual problems - “Spots”, Muscle Contraction, Redness, Swelling, or Tearing of the eyes
  • Irritability, nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea.

Another variety of the headache, closely related to the migraine, is the CLUSTER HEADACHE. Symptoms of a Cluster Headache include-

  • Intense, throbbing pain arising high in the nostril, behind the eye, or in the forehead.
  • Attacks that occur several times daily that can last weeks or months.

What puts the ache in headache? The pain-sensitive structures of the head are the culprits. These are the arteries of the brain and skull, the tissues surrounding the head veins, the dura mata covering over the brain, and certain nerves called cranial nerves. When these parts are inflamed, stretched, pulled, or under pressure, any type of headache may be associated with it.

We take a different approach to the treatment and prevention of headaches and migraines.

Neurologically - We determine which part of the nervous system is not functioning properly and develop a program to correct it.

Metabolically - We look for food sensitivities, blood sugar irregularities, adrenal (cortisol), gut dysfunction, thyroid, or other factors that may be contributing to these headaches and address them.

The pain of these types of headaches can be unbearable. We urge you to call us today at 631-563-1444 and get started on a path to getting rid of those headaches.
