Common Head Pain Causes

A variety of factors can cause head pain, and finding the root cause can be a difficult and complex process.  There are many potential causes of head pain, including:

  • Tension headaches
  • Migraines
  • Sinus problems
  • Nerve conditions such as Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Issues with the teeth or jaw
  • Blunt force trauma to the head

It's important to consider all of these potential causes, as well as any other underlying health issues that may be contributing to the pain.

Please feel free to contact Atlas Pain Specialists right away if you've been experiencing persistent headaches and are ready to put an end to the pain.  Finding the cause of your head pain is a priority for our staff, and we're here to assist you to do just that.

Common  Head Pain Symptoms

The various potential causes of your headache, each with its own set of symptoms, should not be ignored.

  • Tension headaches, for example, are characterized by dull, constant pressure or a feeling of tightness around the head, neck, and shoulders.
  • Migraines, on the other hand, are often more severe and can be accompanied by symptoms such as light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and visual disturbances.
  • Sinus problems, dental issues, and problems with the jaw can also cause head pain.  Sinus-related head pain is often accompanied by symptoms such as congestion, difficulty breathing, and pressure in the sinus areas of the face.
  • Dental issues can cause head pain in the jaw and teeth, while problems with the jaw can lead to pain in the face, neck, and head.

Remember that every person is unique, and head pain symptoms can vary widely from person to person.  That's why it's so important to work with a team of experts to help identify the cause of your head pain and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.

Do not hesitate to contact Atlas Pain Specialists if you are experiencing head pain and are looking for help. Find out what's causing your pain so we can start you on the road to recovery.

Common Treatments For Head Pain

When treating head pain, the first step is to diagnose the cause of the pain accurately. Our team of pain management experts uses a variety of diagnostic tools and techniques to help identify the root cause of our patient's head pain. This may include imaging tests such as CT scans or MRIs, physical exams, and even blood tests to rule out any underlying medical conditions.

Once we have a better understanding of the cause of the head pain, we can develop a treatment plan tailored to each patient's individual needs. This may include:

  • Medications
  • Physical therapy
  • other non-invasive treatments

We at Atlas Pain Specialists take a more all-encompassing view when treating pain. This means that we take into account the whole person while designing a treatment plan for our patients, not just their symptoms.

We work closely with our patients to understand their unique needs and goals, and we strive to provide the highest quality care in a compassionate and supportive environment.  If you are suffering from head pain and are looking for relief, don't hesitate to reach out to Atlas Pain Specialists.  We are always ready to help you to overcome your head pain.

At-Home Treatment Tips For Your Head Pain

While it's important to work with a healthcare professional to identify the cause of your head pain and develop a treatment plan, there are also a few self-care tips that you can try at home to help manage your pain.

One simple but effective tip is to try to relax and reduce stress.  Stress can be a major trigger for head pain, so finding ways to relax and de-stress can be helpful in managing your pain. This may include activities such as deep breathing, meditation, or gentle stretching.

Another is to pay attention to your diet and try to avoid foods or drinks that may trigger your head pain.  Common triggers include caffeine, alcohol, and certain types of food additives.  Staying hydrated and getting enough sleep can also be helpful in managing head pain.

If you suffer from migraines, it may be helpful to keep a headache diary to track your triggers and patterns. This can help you and your healthcare provider identifies potential triggers and find ways to prevent or manage your migraines.

It's also important to be consistent with your treatment plan and communicate with your healthcare provider about any changes in your symptoms or the effectiveness of your treatment.

Remember, the key to managing head pain is to work with a healthcare professional and find a treatment plan that works for you.

Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is a common problem that can cause significant physical and emotional distress. When you have chronic pain, you may experience pain every day, even after the original injury or illness has healed. This can be difficult to cope with, both physically and emotionally. Approximately 25% of people with chronic pain will develop chronic pain syndrome (CPS), which is characterized by symptoms beyond pain, like depression and anxiety. This can make it difficult to live your life normally.

Neck Pain
The neck (or cervical spine) is a coordinated network of nerves, bones, joints, and muscles. It has the important job of providing protection and mobility to the brain, but often it can become painful. There are a number of conditions that cause pain in the neck. Inflammation along nerve pathways in the spine can be responsible for shoulder, head, arm, and/or hand pain. Additionally, inflammation of the spinal cord may cause pain in the legs and other areas of the body. In a few days or weeks, neck pain usually goes away, but pain that lasts for months may signify an underlying medical cause that needs to be addressed. In such cases, early intervention may be necessary for the best results.
