What types of headaches can occur?

Several different types of headaches can occur. The most common types of headaches are migraines and tension headaches. A migraine is a severe headache that may last for many hours or even days if the patient doesn’t receive treatment. Migraines usually affect only one side of the head at a time, and they cause throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, and sensitivity to sound.
Tension headaches typically affect the entire head. They cause a dull aching, feelings of tightness, and tenderness in the shoulders and scalp. Tension headaches aren’t usually as severe as migraines, but they can still be painful and disruptive for patients.

What causes headaches?

The exact cause of most headaches isn’t known. However, tension headaches typically occur because of stress and muscle contractions. Migraines, on the other hand, occur because of a change in the way the trigeminal nerve interacts with the brainstem. In most cases, migraines occur after specific triggers, such as changes in the weather, consumption of specific foods, hormone fluctuations and emotional stress.

How does Innovative Medical Center treat headaches?

Innovative Medical Center offers several different types of treatment for patients with frequent headaches. Some of the treatments the doctors at Innovative Medical Center may recommend include:
• Corrective exercises – Corrective exercises can address weak muscles and bad posture habits that may contribute to the development of headaches.
• Trigger point injections – Trigger point injections contain medication that alleviates pain. Doctors administer these injections in specific locations on the body to relieve pain from headaches.
• Soft tissue massage – In some cases, migraines and headaches occur because of tension in the muscles. Soft tissue massage can relieve some of this tension, which can reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches.
• Spinal manipulation – Many people with frequent headaches have problems with alignments in the spine, especially in the neck. Spinal manipulation can resolve these issues and aid in the prevention and treatment of headaches.

Can Innovative Medical Center treat an active headache?

Innovative Medical Center can treat patients who are currently experiencing a headache, as well as those who are hoping to prevent future headaches.

Great staff! Love the results. Went in for my knee, and after the first injection, I started walking without a limp and with no pain.

I have been going here for 10 years. Dr roland helped my daughter have a higher quality of life. Every physical activity she does is due to him seeing what her drs refused to see. She had a seizure due to medication she was taking for chronic constipation. Dr Roland noticed she was off a bit and offered to take a look at her back. She was completely out of alignment. He helped her not have the struggles and she now is able to have full range of movement. The office staff is beyond friendly I have always felt welcome here.

I have had an amazing experience with the staff at IMC. I did stem cell replacement with our non verbal severely autistic son and the results were amazing for our family. It was a joy to go through this journey with them and I continue to take my children there and they have helped more then some MD's with treatments. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

What can I say about IMC? Let me start off by saying if every medical office cared about their patients the way these people do, we would have no need for doctors! They are about healing you. It’s as if they’re treating their own mother. The love and concern that they have for their patients is unbelievable! I went in there barely able to move. It took me literally about 5 minutes to get out of a chair, with the help of cane. I cannot believe how far I’ve come! Before my treatment was over I was actually able to take my daughter to an amusement park where I was on my feet walking all day! That ment so much to me! To be able to give my daughter something she deserves. Instead of being cooped up in the house because her dad was unable to leave the house because he was in too much pain. They not only brought hope back into my life. But they made it possible for my daughter to experience life, as she should. I’d give these people the world if I could! Because that’s what they gave to my daughter! Thank you IMC!
