Types Of Headaches
There are 3 main headache types, all of which have unique treatment methods. These types are migraine, tension, and cervicogenic. The key to creating long-term relief is to first determine which type of headache you are suffering from.
Migraine: This is usually the most severe type, and can include nausea and vomiting, along with sensitivity to light and sound. It usually occurs on one side of the head, and can present with or without aura.
Tension: This is the most common headache type. It usually occurs in the front and on both sides of the head, with a “pressure” or “squeezing” feeling. It can be aggrivated by stress or tension.
Cervicogenic: Simply put, this is a headache that originates from your neck. It occurs on one side of head and neck and is aggravated by sustained postures and specific neck movements. Often times you will experience neck pain and stiffness along with the headache.
At Onward Atlanta, we specialize in providing relief to those dealing with chronic headaches and would love the opportunity to help those wanting to regain their freedom of movement without surgeries, injections, or wasting time with ineffective treatments.
Don’t just take our word for it
See what these patients had to say about their experience with Onward Atlanta…
I dealt with debilitating neck and shoulder pain that limited my ability to function as a manager and a mother. Thankfully, I found Dr. Monique Cofino who is the very best Dr. anyone could ask for!! She does amazing work and her patient care is awesome!
“Monique is very thorough and knowledgeable. She takes her time and never rushed through a visit. She tries different exercises to see what you respond to best. Monique is easy to take instruction from and is a pleasant person in general. She helped improve my symptoms and range of motion, even after one visit. She also gave me exercises that I can do at home if my symptoms flare up.”
During each session, Dr. Cofino was consistent in her incredible professionality, caring attitude, motivation and passion to ensure the best results. Coming to PT was something she made easy to look forward to every week, and her one-on-one attention from start to finish made me feel comfortable and able to trust her with my health. She challenged me to do better each day, even when I didn’t want to, and that drive led me to a faster recovery.
