Tension Headaches

A band of dull pain is often used to describe a tension headache. As the most common type of headaches for adults, tension-type headaches are caused by a wide variety of physical and emotional issues. Up to 80% of adults are affected by tension headaches, but most people experience them infrequently and for short durations. Tension headaches can become chronic, occurring 15 or more times per month over several months or longer. If you suffer from chronic tension headaches, our team at Medici Medical Arts can help create a treatment plan for head pain relief.

Tension headaches may be a result of physical or emotional stress. Overexertion, mentally or physically, can result in head pain. Tension headaches are different than migraines, even when they are frequent or chronic. While migraines are throbbing and cause other symptoms, like nausea and light/sound sensitivity, tension headaches are localized to the head. Constant pressure or dull pain that can be located anywhere on the head is common for tension headaches.

Treating Chronic Tension-Type Headaches

Most occasional tension headaches can be effectively treated with OTC pain medications. When tension headaches become more frequent over a longer period of time, professional treatment may be needed. At Medici Medical Arts, we always evaluate our patients with tension headaches for underlying causes that could be triggering head pain. If a source is found, we treat the cause to prevent tension headaches.

Even when the cause of tension headaches is unknown, there are effective options to control and limit the pain. Our experts can recommend a treatment plan to manage chronic headaches and give you relief. Stretches, exercises, medication management, injections and other treatment options are available to help you manage your chronic headache pain.

If tension headaches are impacting your quality of life, contact Medici Medical Arts today to schedule your consultation. We have convenient locations in the greater Atlanta area for headache pain management.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
