Comprehensive Treatment for Head Pain
Head pain can be classified as a general, prolonged discomfort within the head region. Those who suffer from severe, prolonged headaches or isolated pain in the head area know how debilitating this type of pain can be. At Medici Spine & Pain, we understand that any type of head pain can be incapacitating.
The head region, which includes the skull, brain, brain stem, facial structure, jaw, and neck, has a vast system of nerves, tendons, and muscles. Any of these could be injured in a car accident, blunt force trauma, a fall, clenching the teeth during sleep, grinding the teeth during stressful situations, or through other ways. Our physicians at Medici Spine & Pain can diagnose and treat head pain and injuries to give you relief from pain. The causes for head pain can vary, but they typically include:
- TMJ Syndrome
- Migraine Headaches
- Tension Headaches
- Occipital Neuralgia
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
At Medici Spine & Pain, many of our patients describe their head pain as worse and harder to deal with than any other injury they have ever had. The reason for this is because your head is the central part of your entire body. While not “centered” physically, your head is where thoughts are processed, decisions are made, sight is controlled, and other crucial functions of the body are controlled for general function. When there is an overwhelming pain or discomfort in the head region, it is not easy to process thoughts, have conversations, make decisions, or carry on with day to day responsibilities.
The complexity of the head region makes it often challenging to find the exact source of the pain. Our comprehensive interdisciplinary practice utilizes advanced techniques and technology to determine the cause of the pain. With an accurate diagnosis of the problem, our team of physicians can devise a treatment plan for relief. At Medici Spine & Pain, we do not merely want to help “mask” your symptoms. We want to find a solution through a long-term treatment plan to improve your quality of life.
Our practice uses a multidisciplinary approach to treat all types of chronic pain and dysfunction. We utilize advanced diagnostic tools and imaging to help accurately diagnose nerve, brain, joint, and musculoskeletal conditions affecting the head. If you are suffering from head pain, you do not have to continue to suffer. Contact Medici Spine & Pain today for an appointment to explore treatment options to improve your quality of life.
