Headaches have become an acceptable reality for our modern lifestyles, when in actuality, they shouldn’t be. A headache should not be a daily occurrence, and a chronic headache should never become strong enough to be considered a migraine, cluster headache or similar. At Everspring Health, we review your history with headaches: how long have you had them? What occurred around the time of onset of the condition? What do your headaches feel like? How often do you get them? Are they sensitive to changes in temperature, seasonal shifts, or different times of day?

    Types of Headaches include:
  • Acute headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Chronic progressive headaches
  • Hormone headaches
  • Migraines
  • Mixed headache syndrome
  • Sinus headaches
  • Tension headaches

Your history, paired with an understanding of your personal balance of stress, diet, and sleep, will lead us to choosing an appropriate treatment plan. This plan will involve a change in lifestyle (more sleep, less stress, more appropriate diet), physical therapy (acupuncture, massage), postural alignment or positional release, or an examination of neurological or systemic issues. Each plan is specific to each individual’s diverse experience.

Some headaches may be signs of a serious medical condition. Headaches with any of the follow symptoms need immediate medical support:
  • Vomiting without nausea
  • Severe dizziness
  • Fever
  • Extreme neck pain
  • Sudden abrupt onset
  • Sudden Hypertension
