For those suffering with persistent headaches or migraines in Vancouver, Washington, Pain Relief Partners works to provide a thorough diagnostic assessment in order to design an effective treatment plan and provide the right treatment.
- Tension headaches account for about 75% of headaches. They can last anywhere from minutes to days, and typically start slowly. They are often described as a dull ache on one or both sides of the head or as if a tight band were around the head or behind the eyes. They’re often caused by stress in the spine and/or muscles in the back and neck. Tension headaches can be effectively treated using therapies like stem cell therapy to the muscles of the neck and shoulders, trigger point injections, cervical decompression, deep tissue laser, and chiropractic adjustment.
- About 25 million migraine sufferers live in the United States, and 75% of these are women. Causing intense, throbbing head pain, migraines also include symptoms like nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, and visual symptoms like flashing lights. They can be caused by changing blood flow in the brain, food triggers, or stress, and they can also have a genetic component. Because identifying dietary triggers is a big part of treating migraines, at Pain Relief Partners, migraine headache treatment includes nutritional counseling. Stem cell therapy, trigger point injections, chiropractic care, cervical decompression, and deep tissue laser can all be effective ways to combat migraines.
- Brief but excruciating, cluster headaches usually occur on one side of the head behind the eyes. Somewhere around one million people in the United States suffer from cluster headaches, and most of these sufferers are men. Cluster headaches, like migraines, are related to blood flow in the brain, and they often occur one or more times a day for several days, but then don’t happen again for months or even years. Something unique about this headache is that it usually occurs at night. Treatment options for cluster headaches are similar to the plans designed for other headaches that are treated at Pain Relief Partners.
