Head Pain Treatment
When an injury or degenerative disease impact the head or neck, head pain can be caused by injury to the nerves. Headaches, migraines and other pain in the head/neck area can be a direct result of a pinched or aggravated nerve, requiring treatment to get relief. At Allied Pain & Spine Institute, our multiple board certified physicians, chiropractors and physical therapists work together to create effective treatment plans for our patients with various types of nerve pain, including head and neck pain.
One of the most common types of nerve head pain is occipital neuralgia. This can cause a shooting pain up the neck to the back of the head. It can also cause pain behind the eyes, headaches or dizziness. The occipital nerves can be affected by an injury to the head or neck; it can also be pinched or pressured due to inflammation, osteoarthritis or tightened muscles in the neck. Treatment to release pressure on the occipital nerve can result in reduced head pain, which may involve chiropractic care, injection therapy, minimally-invasive surgeries, physiotherapy and other treatments we offer at Allied Pain & Spine Institute.
